*Barbeque Guns

“…in general, a barbeque gun is a handgun that is usually not carried every day and is something out of the ordinary.  Most often, a barbeque gun is especially good looking and sports characteristics that make it stand out as a special gun.

   Most in the gun culture agree that the tradition started many years ago down on the U.S. – Mexico border, probably in Texas, which has a long tradition of social occasions built around a barbeque.  Ranch owners or hands, law-enforcement officers and others would come to those barbeques wearing their best clothes and carrying a barbeque gun.  It was a special occasion, so people wanted to look their best, and wearing a special gun, usually carried in a holster reserved for dressy occasions was just part of the fun.”
