    The revolves on the Revolver Brewing Co logo are what make and model revolvers?

    And why is that?
    They look like Colt 1847 Walkers, based on the unsecured loading lever, though I don't know why those were chosen. It's a Texas brewery, right? Probably because of the tie to the Mexican American War.

    Texas Rangers is my guess for the link to the Colt's. It was the Battle of Walker's Creek that linked Colt to the Texas Rangers.



    Granbury, TX and the Blood & Honey is a fav of mine.

    Walker Colts

    Texas Ranger Captain Sam Walker went to meet with Sam Colt to request an improved, larger caliber revolver. Sam Colt obliged, and created the new model, the Walker Colt.

    Then, once issued, Texas Rangers carried at least a pair of the loaded revolvers, and adopted the Comanche hit and run, from horseback tactics used by their enemies. The tactics worked just as well, or better, than the expert archers and horsemen that terrorized the plains.

    Therefore, if there was an official firearm of Texas, it would be the Walker Colt.

    I could take out the whole 20,000 troops with five Stacey Abrahams and two truck loads of KFC.

    Never did. I Did McClellan, Benning, and Bragg as a 54b. Worked with enough guys at Bragg that had been there that I know what it's about.
    I did a project at Anniston where I had to carry two respirators one that I wore for work and one that I carried in case the alarms went off next-door the incinerator. The good news is they were finished with the VX the bad news was they were burning mustard. Never needed the one on my hip.

    Let's just say it's not a good place for a picnic...
    I've read accounts of where ordnance-types working the site had to enter on hands and knees just to pick through and navigate between all the random pieces of ordnance strewn about by random high-order events. That said, I've enjoyed many a bag lunch in front of that gate!
