Joe says that collecting is a sickness! He has Cap Guns, Steam Engines and Erector Sets. His is not a large collection (so far), but it gives you an idea of how you can start yours. You can contact Joe at:

If you want your Cap Gun collection featured, then please send your photos to:

(in Uncle Talley's order)


We'll start off with some fine Nichols Stallion 45's, bullets and holsters. That caption seems familiar too.

This is a close-up of the bottom 45 pictured above.

Another close-up. That little kid's cartoon is from an old photo of your author of this website from back in the 50's.

A great Roy Rogers set.

The fabulous Nichols G-45 and a Dyna-Mite, both gold plated. I think the box is worth almost as much as the gun.

Good close-up of the name insert on the above holster.

Can you believe it? I asked a young waiter at a major restaurant whether or not he had heard of Roy Rogers and he said, "No." What's the world coming to?

Nice boxes and an ad.

Good close-up of the boxes.

Here's a pile of Hubley Cap Guns and underneath are some working steam engines. I wish I had one of those!

Cast iron Hubley Texan.

A really nice black Hubley Texan Jr.

Hubley's full-sized Texan.

Joe says he's had this poster for over 35 years.

Nice corner. I really need to put my Cap Guns on the wall, or in the corner...or just somewhere!

A much more up-to-date photo of this particular Nichols (and others) corner of Joe's room.

A little closer for detail.

Here's a good close-up on the blued version of the Nichols Stallion Model 61.

For most Nichols collectors, this is the second hardest Cap Gun in the series to obtain, much less with a nice reproduction box from Toy Tent. But, if you will notice, this gun also has my Uncle Talley's signature on the grip. Nice touch. Now why didn't I think of that, and I visited Uncle Talley and Aunt Ruth quite often.

Here's a great close-up of the Stallion 45, but it's the Tex Tan packaging. This version is much more rare and also has the notches on the cylinder. You will also notice that it has the machined bullets and the little cardboard box around those bullets PLUS the instruction manual and 2 boxes of caps.

And another Pasadena Stallion 45 (1st Model and in a Nichols Box) with the notched cylinder. So many people threw away the boxes it's incredible. Now they could probably buy a new Honda with all of the boxes the kids in their neighborhood threw away! I know I could. (rats!)

Here's a more up-to-date photo showing both original version of the Pasadena Stallion 45. It's always nice to have any of the Pasadena guns. I especially like them because I am the only one of my siblings to remember those "Good Old Days."

Here's the Tex Tan box lid and a Dyna-Mite shown off, PLUS you can see a Gilbert Erector Set. My Uncle Talley gave me one of these for Christmas and I thought I was an instant engineer.

Simply a close-up of the famous Tex Tan box.
