Calvin and Haulfan, you're making me feel really old now. I have a J.C. Higgins 22 gun belt and holster I used to carry a Ruger single six in (half loading gate)when I was a kid. Think I ordered it out of a catalog.Longer ago than I like to think about,
Haux, I'm with you on the right side of the grass and sucking air. LOL--Steve
I had one of the JC Higgins .22's in the 50's. Carried it in a holster while driving farm tractors. Traded it on a Ruger single six which I still have. Been looking for one the last few years. If anyone has one for sale I'd be interested. Leave off the x's in my email address.
I bought a J. C. Higgins about a 100 years ago. The nine shot variety. I bought it used and it would never lock properly and when my hand was near the cylinder it would shave off a piece of lead or the gaps were xtra large and would burn me good.
Farmall: You might roam gun shows & look for a High Standard Sentinel revolver. It might be very similiar to the J.C. Higgins you remember. The Sentinels are prevalent, about $100-150, and are a very nice little 9-shot revolver. Phil E
It's not a pistol, but I still have my first "real" gun, a J.C. Higgins single shot .22 rifle I got for my 12th birthday in 1954. My folks paid $12.95 for it, which was about 4 1/4 hours of work for my Dad back then. The following year they gave me a Higgins bolt action .410 which cost a few dollars more. My safe contains a number of pretty expensive guns, and those two modest little arms repose there with honor and associated good memories.
