Arming the West by Houze


Arming the West by Herbert G. Houze

A fresh new look at the guns that were actually carried on the frontier. Mythbusting details from the Western shipping records of Schuyler, Hartley & Graham from 1868 to 1886. Newly discovered evidence from the shipping records of the largest supplier of firearms to the frontier tells us a different story. It totally reinvents what we should think of as a “Western gun.”
