The little boy watches the seasoned gun fighter pull his
.45 Colt from his holster, level it, and fire five times, obliterating a white
rock each time he fires. The man's speed is awesome. The boy had been admiring
the gun fighter's revolver in its leather holster, sneaking looks on the sly.
So far its deadly barrel had been hidden from view, concealed in its scabbard
with only its pearl grips betraying its lethal purpose. Until now. Each time
the man fires the little boy hears a deafening roar breaking the silence in
the mountains. The gunfighter and his 45 Colt Single Action Army Peacemaker embody a deadly violence
that is quicker and more deadly than the most dangerous predator alive.
The revolver carried by the
perhaps the best Western movie ever produced, is the Colt .45 Single Action Army.
Produced in 1953 in Jackson hole, Wyoming, with the magnificent
Tetons ever present in the background, the film starred Alan
Ladd, Jean Arthur and Van Heflin. I'll never forget that
film, especially the part when the hired gun, Jack Wilson,
superbly played by Jack Palance guns down a hapless homesteader
with his 45 Peacemaker.
More than any firearm that ever existed or ever will,
the Colt 45 Single Action Army is
the weapon that has been most closely connected to the individualistic
hero of the Old West--or badman-- in movies, legend, and fact.
