'Diego'--single Mexican ‘Pistolero’ figure

This nattily-attired Mexican gentleman is most definitely NOT a Vaquero.  More likely he is a gunfighter available for hire to the highest bidder.  In Mexico, these men were called ‘Pistoleros’ and carried a variety of weaponry, including, in this case, a brace of revolvers and a bandoleer of ammunition for his rifle.

"South Of The Rio Grande"

The borderlands on either side of the Rio Grande, the winding river that separates the United States on one side to the north and Mexico on the other to the south.  For a long time, including most of the 19th Century, this entire area and the river that runs through it was rife with cattle rustling, all types of banditry and general lawlessness of every kind and shape.  Many of the cowboys and vaqueros who moved across the Rio Grande on a regular basis were easily familiar with both sides of the law and who administered it in each place.
