From Flyer:

“I am a descendant of A.H. Hardy (Albert Howard Hardy) he was known as Bert by family. My mother has spoken of him for years. I also inherited a .22 from my father. I am very interested in acquiring a A.H. Hardy holster for the 22. A.H. (Capt.) Hardy was a world famous sharpshooter and was a pallbear for Buffalo Bill Cody, in Denver Colorado. He began learning leatherwork in Omaha Nebraska at the age of 17. Wherever he lived he always had his leathershop with him, making saddles, holsters, purses, anything leather. In Beverly Hills he worked with the studios as a technical director and teaching actors how to shoot. Actors he worked with included Tom Mix, Fred Stone, Clark Gable, William S. Hart, Andy Devine, Fred MacMurry and others. He also made custom holsters for them. In the 1935 movie Annie Oakley his daughter Kathryn did the shooting for Barbara Stanwyck, who played Annie, and Hardy for Preston Foster who played Toby Walker.

I have much more information if you are interested, please let me know. However, if you still have this holster, I would be very interested in making a purchase.”
