You might not guess this from the topics generally covered on Pacific Standard, but I don't do a lot of gun-fighting. Still, I saw this book in the window of Twice Sold Tales (Capitol Hill) and could not pass it up.

At the time of publication, Chic Gaylord was a holster maker in New York City, but, according to the introduction, "Chic's research-oriented mind has probed far beyond the holster, to the gun and gun fighting."

"He brings to combat shooting the thinking of men who live with a gun twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, month in and month out."

"Many of his customers are men who have been in gun fights with well-armed opponents seeking to kill them, and they talk to Chic."

Gaylord also profiles some of the most notorious gunfighters of the old West.

So... that's another invaluable resource for the library.

As the Crow Flies

Last Friday I had the chance to check out the amazing Dennis McNett installations in the windows at Barneys Seattle. (Click to enlarge.)

The photos don't fully do them justice but if you have the chance, head downtown and take a closer look.

McNett, who is based in Brooklyn, also did installations in the windows of the New York store this past summer. See more of his work here and check out the Barneys windows through the end of October at 6th and Pine, Seattle.
