    When I was a kid (I was born Jan., 1946), I grew up with Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers, Cisco Kid, etc. Anyway the Encore Western Channel is airing the old Gene Autry series & Movies but, all of the ones I've seen so far show him with a double holster gun belt with only the right holster attached. But, I remember most of the movies & early TV shows he had a double gun rig with Two not One Revolver/Six-Shooter! What gives, does anyone know why this is? I don't think I'm crazy yet, but who knows? Sincerely, LoneRanger2:huh:

    Although Gene Autry's gunbelt was designed as a two-gun rig as far back as the Phantom Empire, he always wore it with only the right hand holster. I have read that he didn't like the extra weight of the second gun and holster so he never wore the left holster in any of his films. I believe he wore the same holster in all his movies and TV shows from the Phantom Empire to his retirement.

    :) In response to Bob Gu's response about Gene Autry's Double Gun Rig! Bob, I could have sworn that I saw Gene Autry with a double gun rig with two six-shooters in some of his films. Oh well I guess age really has caught up with me?:eek: Sincerely, LoneRanger2
