I promise that next week I will get on a new topic, but for this week, I continue to listen to old Marty Robbins and Freddy Fender music, and dream of Old Mexico. I am very excited about this picture, and felt that I had found close to the perfect picture of a classic Bandit/Freedom Fighter/Soldier/Insurrectionist/Mexican Cowboy. First, the face definitely has the scruffy, intimidating look one would hope for. The man appears to have boots AND some sort of half-chap leather leggings. As far as weapons, our man looks to be packing the classic Winchester Model 94 30-30. As a bonus, he has a knife and a revolver in his belt. Yep, he is equipped to get the job done, and doing it in style. But wait . . . I can only see three bullets in his belt, and he is not wearing the over the shoulder dual bullet belt we have come to expect and love. While his demeanor will definitely take him far, I am fearful that he is woefully lacking in ammunition. As such, I must unfortunately conclude that this photograph falls short. The quest continues. Pardon me while I go listen to "El Paso" by Marty Robbins, and "Rancho Grande" by Freddy Fender.
