Wild West performer, Deke Rivers, is a third generation entertainer sporting the cowboy era. Growing up backstage of rodeo, motion picture and stage productions, he knew from an early age that he loved everything ‘Wild West’ and that he would make his mark on the world with a sixgun.
Fast forward thirty-some years and you'll see he's doing just that! Not only is he an N.R.A instructor, Wild West showman, exhibition and competition shooter; he is also a stuntman, animal wrangler and instructor in the Wild West arts.
Using his gunsmith talents, Deke has collaborated with champion mounted shooters, Taylor's & Co., and Uberti to design a series of mounted shooting firearms that are competition ready right out of the box! The Runnin' Iron, Runnin' Iron Revolving Carbine, and the Runnin' Comanchero Rifle.
Deke has a name, a Wild West flare, and a vast knowledge of these firearms that has earned him several sponsors from some of the best equipment in the business. Taylor's & Co. is proud to present "The Pistolero", Deke Rivers.
