FRIEND OF THE FOUNDATION PASSES By Joel “Dutch” Dortch Prescott, AZ. Jim Lockwood, of Legends in Leather in Prescott, AZ passed away on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, after an illness of 3 ½ years. Jim was a master at recreating the fancy signature holster rigs of the Hollywood cowboy stars from the Golden Age of the westerns in the 1940’s and 1950’s. For example, Gene Autry’s holster rig didn’t look anything like Roy’s and neither one looked anything like Hoppy’s or the Lone Ranger’s. Each had their own signature rig and Jim made them plus a multitude of others. Jim was a knowledgeable and huge fan of western movies and TV shows. His favorite movie was Shane from 1953 starring Alan Ladd, Van Heflin, Jean Arthur, Brandon de Wilde, and Jack Palance as the evil villain, Jack Wilson. The first holster rig that Jim made was a replica of the Alan Ladd Shane outfit with the sterling silver wagon wheel type round conchos on the belt. The second rig he made was the Jack Wilson double holster rig. When friends and acquaintances saw the Shane outfit, they asked Jim to make one for them. Thus, a business was born! Jim was the God Father of the Silver Screen Legend project that has raised well over a million dollars for the Happy Trails Children’s Foundation and the hundreds of boys who have gone through the program for abused boys at the Cooper Home in Apple Valley, CA. Over a period of 20 plus years, Jim made more than 30 replica holster rigs that he donated to the foundation to help raise money for the boys in our care! As a result of Jim’s endeavors, the Happy Trails Children’s Foundation is still the only known children’s charity in the country today that has anything to do with firearms. We are proud of that connection and the fact that our tickets are still only $10 each. The same price since the beginning way back in 1997.
