    So I searched a bit for an existing thread with the following subject matter and came up empty, which I found somewhat surprising as I am sure like myself, many of you folks are not only knife enthusiasts and collectors but are also actively engaged in the shooting sports. Whether that be collecting, hunting, target shooting, self defense, or all of the above.

    So without further ado, I would like to initiate a thread dedicated to displaying your traditional blades with traditional firearm accompaniment. I think it prudent to maintain the criteria set here for traditional knives and apply it to your firearms as well. If it would not look out of place in the 1950's-60's or even earlier than you should be good to go.

    I think this thread could be a lot of fun so I will start things off with a couple pics of my own:

    I think it is hard to beat a Winchester Model 94 and a Buck 119 for a good woods combo. Rugged, tough, but beautiful.


    Pictured below is a repro Colt Walker accompanied by a Schrade Stockman. Despite it being faux stag, I still think it looks rather nice with the pistol and leather. The gun belt/holster was one of my very first projects delving into leathercraft.

    Mora 612 with CZ vz.50. The Borsalino is old school, too, if not the crease.


    FEG with a Wirkkala puukko. Sorry about the crap cell phone pics.


    Is the Golok traditional?

    Great thread, Pàdruig! Here's a photo I took a while back at the range.


    I suppose a Red Ryder BB gun is pretty traditional, too. :D

    I took this picture sometime back a box of slugs for one of my 12 gauge's and threw in a little John Deer (got the hat when I bought my tractor) and a little Led Zeppelin Opinel is a #8.

    An 1858 Remington reproduction with a .44 conversion cylinder (this also fires black powder ball with the original cylilnder). Many of the original 1858's were converted to fire .44 cartridges after the U.S. Civil War and were popular in the American West. Pictured with a Remington Barlow. The smallest kid in the photo is me at the beginning of my Old West infatuation 99 years after the 1858's were first made.

    Thank you all for the wonderful contributions, great pics of some fantastic pairings. I had hoped that this thread would have garnered more interest. After all, it is pairing two of my favorite things... I went ahead, though, and changed the title to something less ambiguous, my attempt at a clever play on words probably wasn't the best idea.

    Hope to see more of everyone's knife and gun montages, I will take some more pics of my own soon.

    One of my Ranchero models on a Ruger Old Model Vaquero in .45 Colt


    And its Pancake sheath:


    An El Toro and a Marlin also in .45


    Another El Toro with my BLR:


    BBQ time:


    How about one of my Hunters and a Skinner with a .700 H & H Double rifle. Knives handled in walnut stock cut offs from the maker (Butch Searcy) of the rifle.


    The Ruger Vaquero and a Tapadero knife in a Beltless sheath.

    I like this thread since my two favorite things are guns and knives.

    Posted this yesterday but it really belongs here.
