The Shoulder Holsters
Anachronism Or Useful Accessory? The real Eliot Ness wore a first-issue Colt Detective Special in a shoulder holster. Robert Stack in TV’s mid-20th century show The Untouchables portrayed him with a bigger Colt Official Police 4″ .38 in what appeared to be a Lawrence shoulder rig, and Kevin Costner in the movie of the same name played Ness as wearing a 1911 .45 in the same type of rig. Whether in the pages of the novels or on the screen, Mickey Spillane’s popular private detective Mike Hammer just wouldn’t have been the same with his .45 automatic in anything but a shoulder holster under his trench coat.
