COMMODORE PERRY OWENS — While working as sheriff of Arizona’s Apache County, Commodore Perry Owens earned fame for his 1886 shoot-out in Holbrook, where he killed three of the Blevins crew and wounded a fourth in five shots. He went on to become the first sheriff of Navajo County from 1895-96. What we love most about this photo is the fact that Owens is wearing a buscadero rig, a holster style rarely seen in Old West photographs.  – Courtesy Robert G. McCubbin Collection –

We love this image of James B. “Jim” Hawkins, a charter member of Company D of the Texas Rangers, because he definitely looks like he’s loaded for bear.:
