Turns out that the guy at the booth was Robert Taylor, Director of Sales for El Paso Saddlery. I struck up a nice conversation with him, and mentioned that I had been carrying in one of their rigs for years.

I mentioned to Robert that I just bought an SAA clone, and would love to get a holster for that. Well, we talked for a bit, and he made me a great deal for the holster and a 12 round cartridge slide.
I walked out with a beautiful #44 Outfit crossdraw holster and slide that I was totally not planning on buying. I am so happy with this purchase. I had to do a picture for this post, but I was running out of light. So this is adjusted a bit.
Oh, and over the weekend, I started the antiquing process on the Pietta SAA clone. Spent about half an hour with a scotchbrite pad. Here is the 'before' pic:
