Bob from TALO emailed me to say they are distributing a new limited edition Ruger Vaquero to commemorate Emiliano Zapata. The single action revolver is embellished with a Mexican designs in 24 carat gold. In true TALO tradition it is a really beautiful looking pistol. If I had the money I would buy every single one of their special editions guns 🙂
Emiliano Zapata Salazar is a revered Mexican hero. He formed and led the Liberation Army of the South during the 1910 Mexican revolution until 1919, when he was killed in an ambush.
TALO has a history of commemorating both US and Mexican statesmen and heros. The previous TALO Special edition Ruger Vaquero was a commemorative John Wayne revolver.
