From my 2010 visit to the Gene Autry Museum of Western
Heritage is this photo of a beautiful Slim Jim holster circa 1850.
1850... Man... That is 31 years before the infamous Gunfight at
the O.K. Corral.... This is just amazing. Wyatt Earp was two
years old. Nine years before Billy the Kid was born. Butch Cassidy
was not born until sixteen years later. Mark Twain was only fifteen
years old. It would be eleven years until the start of the Civil War.
Anyway, you get the idea. This holster has been around a while.
