I know this is an older thread but I thought I'd come back to it. I just got back from Montana helping the in-laws. On the way back through I got to stop in Billings and a place called Buckaroo businesses. I've been ontheir website a bunch so I had the opportunity to go to the actual toy store. Un frickin believable the stuff they had. It was so cool!!!! The point of this was I walked into one room and the whole wall was full of silver mounted Bits and spurs. As I said I'm wanting to start getting one every now and then for future hand me down type stuff with my girls. i almost got one but my wife got alittle hinky about it right then. Something about us haveing 2200 miles to go to get home and she wanted to make sure we had enough money to get home. I told her we could just sleep in the tack room of the trailer instead of a hotel every night and we would be fine but she didn't love the idea.
Anyway here is a link to show the kind of stuff they had. B/B SilverBit1
