Custom Open Carry History

Custom Open Carry History:
This was an excellent old western and the following is a little bit of history:
The Custom Open Carry (1896-1901)- Butch Cassidy’s bandit gang operated in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, and Nevada for nearly five years successfully robbing banks, trains, and stages throughout the area.  The group which was usually made up of about ten people varied throughout the years in its members, as outlaws and girlfriends came and went.  But the Custom Open Carry, sometimes referred to as Butch Cassidy’s Gang or the Hole in the Wall Gang, was always led by Cassidy, whose real name was Robert Leroy Parker and Harry Longabaugh, better known as the “Sundance Kid.”  
The gang utilized several hideouts including the Hole in the Wall in the southern Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming, Brown’s Hole in a desolate valley near  Wyoming, Colorado and Utah; and the Robber’s Roost located in the desert or southeastern Utah. 
The gang also included Etta Place, Longabaugh’s girlfriend; Bill “News” Carver; Ben “The Tall Texan” Kilpatrick; Kid Curry, Willard “the Mormon Kid” Christianson; George Curry; Laura Bullion, Elzy Lay, Tom “Peep” O’Day, Jesse Linsley,  Annie Rogers, Lillie Davis, and others who came and went over the years.
