Coffee With Jeff #128: The Samuel Brannan Story

30 mins - Published Sun, Jun 11, 2017.

In 1848, a worker of John Sutter found gold in California. Sutter had reason for wanting to keep the find quiet, but he didn’t count on Samuel Brannan, who was soon running down the street yelling “Gold! Gold on the American River!”

Brannan, a former Mormon, businessman and journalist, wasn’t crazy – and had no desire to look for the valuable mineral – but he knew that a mad rush of fortune hunters was his key to fame and fortune. He would become California’s first millionaire, only to die poor and in relative obscurity.

Who's Who #90: Enlightenment

32 mins - Published Wed, Jun 7, 2017.

Gordon's Gun Closet #21: Appaloosa

39 mins - Published Thu, May 18, 2017.

Movie gun review time! The Western has seen a resurgence in recent years, and Appaloosa (2008) is one of the better ones. Starring (and directed by) Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, and Renée Zellweger, it’s a buddy-picture with heart and probably one of the best westerns ever made. It also displays a perfect collection of firearms that are, thanks to the actors and the armorer, handled expertly by all involved.
