Powderman, thanks for the ID. I got sidetracked, but I'd meant earlier to comment that ol' DK has a long barrel on that puppy.

I didn't think it was Jim Bridger, since Bridger was born in 1804, and not sure there are any photographs of a young Jim Bridger ever taken?
Since photography was in it's infancy when Bridger was a young man, it wouldn't seem to be used enough to get an image of him at that age. Photography wasn't even around until it was developed in the 1830's in France.

Rough looking old guy. There's them boots again. Must have been cold. Look at all the clothes he has on.
  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

Some of those hats are just as charming as the rifles themselves.
