Gary Cooper's registered magnum holster


uber Member
If you remember the opening of Gun Smoke Matt Dillion draws against an unidentified bad guy. The actor was Arvo Ojala who was a fast draw expert an designed and made holsters not only for western style but other guns. Several years ago I was able to view a collection of some very notable S&W revolvers and included was GAry Cooper's registered magnum and the holster Arvo Ojala made for him.
This had the steel plated like he used in wester style holsgters.

This is way to cool -- great find -----Old buddy of mine works in Hollywood, deals in set props. He has so many photos of gun belts, holsters and firearrms from old days an who wore them--- Also, the contact numbers of the holster makers--- What a trove of info he has
