ABOUT THE ORIGINAL PALADIN DROP LOOP GUN BELT WITH SIDE HOLSTER SET
The original Paladin Drop Loop Gun Belt and Holster Set that Richard Boone wore during the series was produced at the Arvo Ojala Hollywood Fast Draw Shop. Coincidentally at the time the Paladin Drop Loop Gun Belt and Holster Set was created Arvo Ojala, Andy Anderson and Alfonso Pineda all three Hollywood Fast Draw Training Coaches worked together at the Arvo Ojala Hollywood Fast Draw Shop. The Original Set was a Hollywood Fast Draw Set with a Metal Lined Holster which would add rigidity to the holster sheath for repetitive drawing and holstering this became standard practice when producing most Fast Draw Sets or Holsters in all uses.
HAVE GUN WILL TRAVEL................(1957 to 1963) 225 EPISODES PALADIN portrayed by RICHARD BOONE
Paladin was not your normal gunfighter. He was an educated and a traveled man. A West Point graduate, he served as a Union officer during the Civil War. After the war, he went west and became a high-priced 'gun for hire. He was based at the Hotel Carlton in San Francisco and enjoyed the finer things in life. He dressed in fancy clothes, enjoyed fine wine, gourmet food, opera, expensive cigars and he could play the piano. He read newspapers from all over the West looking for situations in which he could help, for a fee.
Sometimes Hey Boy, the Oriental porter who worked at the Carlton, would bring Paladin a letter or wire asking for his help. Usually, within the first few minutes, he was dressed for 'business' and on the trail. When working, he dressed completely in black including a black hat with a band of silver conchos and a custom holster with a silver chess knight on it. He carried a custom made pistol which was perfectly balanced and had a rifled barrel. He preferred to settle problems without violence whenever possible, but if forced to fight, he excelled.
A master marksman and a quick draw, he was a match for most any man. And for those 'difficult times' he kept a derringer hidden under his belt, which saved his life on many occasions. His rifle, which was rarely used, also had a silver chess knight on the stock. This leads us to believe it was as carefully made as the pistol he carried. Before resorting to violence, Paladin would put his rich education and experience to work to try to find an alternate solution. In spite of his profession, he had a deep respect for the law and would often turn on his employers if he found they were the guilty party.
