My Movie, it is coming out in January called The Adventures Of Pepper and Paula. It is based on some of my life story. Cimarron is one of the sponsors of it and of course some of the clothing and guns were used in it especially my guns. Also I was on America's Got Talent in 2013 and of course using Cimarron's guns.
"I love to twirl Cimarrons because they are very balanced guns right off the shelf and they are very sturdy guns for shooting. But most of all, the people are very nice and friendly to deal with, especially the ones that do my fine tuning on my guns. So if you are looking for a well priced and durable gun Cimarron is the way to go!” -Pistol Packin' Paula

"Cimarron Single Actions are at the top of my list for balance, reliability and authenticity. Attention to detail makes the Cimarron look and feel just like the originals of the late 1800s. They have all of the correct period markings, bevels, and millings. No other brand has this complete detail, not even Colt. I now compete with a pair of the new Stainless Steel Models. In my opinion they are the finest Competition Single Action available today." -Jim Rodgers
