    What accessories does one need after buying a certain firearm? For example, Smith and Wesson 29 = tweed jacket.

    Tending toward stealthiness, I don;t buy those things that advertise my hobby. Accessories I always buy include such things as concealment holster, bullets, powder, primers, dies, shell plate and etc. Those things that keep me shooting.

    Now that you have a Vaquero, you need a Stetson...

    And you definitely don't need any badges...

    Single Action Revolver=leather belt and holster. Stetson optional.

    Double Action Revolver=IWB holster (J frame), OWB holster (K, L, and N frame), a couple of speedloaders.

    Semi-auto Pistol=Kydex holster and lots of mags.

    Caliber conversion kit, dies, bullets, brass, and powder/primers as required if what I have on hand is not suitable. Soft case to carry to/from the range. Caliber specific cleaning tools as needed (brush, jag, patches).

    Adding a caliber generally adds about $500 in accessories and supplies.

    Cleaning kit if you don't have one tailored to that caliber because universal kits SUCK with few exception. Holster/sling, scope/scope rings for rifle, mags for autos, speedloader for revolvers, and last but not least a pair of diamond earrings to distract the little lady as you bring your newest aquisition home.

    Got a new Glock, getting new sights.

    Got a new AK, getting a US Palm grip, Kreb's retaining plate, and an Arsenal 2-stage trigger group. May transition to ALG Defense trigger groups if I like them.

    Got a new AR, getting a BCM Mod 0 stock and Mod 3 grip.

    Got a new 870, getting an upgraded CDF spring and a Wilson Combat magazine spring.

    Tweed jacket?

    I dont think my 29's would recognise a tweed jacket if they tripped over it on the street.

    Dirty Harry wore a tweed jacket. Dirty Harry carried a Model 29. CONNECTION.

    And the lever action rifle with the crossed bandoleers - they need to have bolt-action Mauser cartridges in them. smiliesnicker_zpsd3f8a63d.gif

    AR15 = plate carrier with level 5 plates capable of stopping multiple 338 lapua hits to the back; drop leg holster, glock, and no ammo or training for either. :D I kid, i kid...

    Seriously, though: If it has a cylinder or a lever it has to have nice leather to go with it. If it goes bang then ammo.

    Although, when I bought my 1894 30-30 I got a horse and saddle to go with it!

    If it’s a new-to-me caliber, loading dies and bullet mold. I’ve got boxes of just about any other accessory except the tweed jacket. It would take more like a “Bomber” jacket to cover my model 29.

    I got my 29 and 3 speed loaders he always carried 3 . Wife found the badge for me. Its a real nice badge not cheap looking.
    In fact she had in her bag and stopped at VA hospital to see a old vet friend of ours. Security wanted ID . She a women rummaging in her purse for her ID . Security sees badge says. Oh your a cop go ahead. . This was around 6 months after 911 . So much for security
