The Bridgeport rig is a quick draw or fast draw pistol holder, developed in 1882. Today, the device enjoys cult status among other antique gun enthusiasts; the Bridgeport rig was patented in 1882 by sheriff of Camp County, Texas. Flatau envisioned mounting the item on a saddle. A modified hammer screw with a large head that protruded 3/4" from the frame would be installed on the Colt; this screw head would be inserted into the rig and held in place via a strip of spring steel, attached to the gun belt via rivets. The shooter could rotate the revolver upward to fire without removing it from his belt; these were fabricated by the Bridgeport Gun Implement Company of Connecticut. While the Flatau device was dismissed in military circles, it did enjoy limited acceptance among some frontier civilians peace officers and other professional gunmen who appreciated its speed of access. A common complaint was that the screw was damaged and it failed to protect the revolver from the elements. Period photographs and scattered references indicate that the Bridgeport rig was used by some lawmen into the early 20th century.
Elmer Keith wore a Bridgeport rig as did James Gillett when he was Marshall of El Paso, Texas in the 1880s. Bridgeport rigs are popular among cowboy action shooters and antique pistol enthusiasts due to its appearance in Hollywood Westerns. Few original Bridgeport rigs exist today; those that do sell for thousands of dollars. I had always worn a pistol in a belt holster, I was used to drawing fast from that position…A little I put on a belt which carried two Colts without a holster…I could swing the gun muzzles up or down, they were out of the way and at the same time ready for instant use. I could shoot the pistols — though I never had to — without drawing them, just as one shoots out of an open-toed swivel holster. BridgeportRig.com - Bridgeport Rig history and replicas
Bridgeville is an unincorporated community in Humboldt County, California. It is located 12 miles north-northeast of Weott, at an elevation of 636 feet. Bridgeville is 420 km north of San Francisco, with a population of about 25. Called Robinsons Ferry, it was renamed Bridgeport when a bridge was built across the Van Duzen River in 1875; the post office rejected Bridgeport as a name because of another Bridgeport, the Bridgeville post office opened in 1877. Robinsons Ferry was named in honor of local rancher; the 83-acre town became famous in 2002 for being the first in history to be put up for auction on eBay. It was sold for $1.77m but the buyer backed out of the deal only for it to be bought by businessman Bruce Krall for $700,000. Krall put the town up for sale again in 2006 for a starting price of $1.75m. According to the BBC News website, the price included three cows, eight houses, a post office. Los Angeles-based entertainment manager and college student Daniel Thomas La Paille, 25, purchased the town on August 3, 2006 from Krall.
La Paille paid $1.25 million, the money coming from his own entertainment management work as well as from his mother and grandmother. In an interview with the Times-Standard, La Paille said, “ is important in every aspect. We all have to live together. Bridgeville is going to be an example. We're going to... show that we can be environmentally conscious, good neighbors and just create a special little community.”According to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, Daniel La Paille committed suicide November 9, 2006. The cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the chest. On June 29, 2007, Bridgeville was on the market with a $1.3 million price tag for at least several months. This was the third time. In June 2013, Steve Farzam the COO of the prominent Shore Hotel in Santa Monica California and entrepreneur offered to purchase Bridgeville for $900,000 from Daniel La Paille's Mother. Steve Farzam had his development team visit the town where they met with the County Board of Supervisors. Steve Farzam had vast plans to redevelop this town as "America's Greenest City" since sustainability is at his forefront as it was when he developed and operates Shore Hotel which holds a Gold LEED certification.
Steve Farzam stopped the deal since the owner wanted over $1,000,000 and the economics didn't pencil out. However, according to Humboldt County Supervisor, Estelle Fennell, Farzam wanted to start his own police force in Bridgeville, for which he would need the approval of the county sheriff. According to one of Farzam's colleagues, Farzam said he would not buy the town if he was unable to start a police department. According to Fennell, the sheriff was adamant that there would be no changes to law enforcement in Bridgeville and the deal never materialized; the Van Duzen River flows through Bridgeville. The ZIP Code is 95526; the community is inside area code 707. This region experiences warm and dry summers, with no average monthly temperatures above 71.6 °F. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Bridgeville has a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, abbreviated "Csb" on climate maps. Bridgeville is the seat of the Bridgeville Elementary School District, home of the Bridgeville School, a public K-8 school.

Bridgeport is a city in Jackson County, United States. At the time of 2010 census the population was 2,418, down from 2,728 in 2000. Bridgeport is included in TN-GA-AL Combined Statistical Area. Bridgeport developed after the 1840s, when European Americans established a riverboat landing here along the Tennessee River; this landing was a place for local farmers to trade their crops for other goods. Within a few years, a small hamlet known as "Jonesville" had developed around the landing, included a trading post, gristmill and several saloons; the Jonesville post office opened in 1852. Fluctuating river levels made riverboat trade unreliable, area merchants began campaigning for railroad access in the late 1840s; the first rail line reached Jonesville in 1852. A railroad bridge over the Tennessee River was completed in 1854, connecting the city with Chattanooga, Tennessee. In recognition of this accomplishment, the name of the city was changed to "Bridgeport." Construction of a second rail line connecting Bridgeport with Jasper, Tennessee, to the north, began in 1860, but was not completed until after the Civil War.
Because of its location on both a rail line and the Tennessee River, Bridgeport was a strategic site during the Civil War. The rail bridge at Bridgeport was among those targeted by the East Tennessee bridge-burning conspiracy in November 1861. Although this attempt failed, the bridge would be burned twice during the course of the war. Bridgeport was the site of a major skirmish on April 29, 1862, when Union General Ormsby Mitchel seized control of the city, numerous other small actions over the following year as Confederate forces attempted to regain control of the area; the city was burned by Confederate troops under General Braxton Bragg in the Summer of 1863, but it was reoccupied by Union forces. In the latter part of the war, Bridgeport was the site of a major Union shipyard that built gunboats and transports for the Union Army; the USS Chattanooga was built here. In the early 1880s, brothers Frank and Walter Kilpatrick, investors from New York, along with their father, established a lumber company in Bridgeport.
Believing the city's location and resources had extraordinary potential for development, the Kilpatricks began buying up land in the area. Other investors became interested in the city, in 1889 the Bridgeport Land and Development Company was incorporated; this company bought up land and laid out a new grid pattern for the city, which incorporated in 1891. Frank Kilpatrick, who became the city's mayor, built a series of imposing Queen Anne-style houses on the street now known as Kilpatrick Row. Several factories, including a pipe works, stove works, rail car works, planing mill, were built along the river; the rapid development of Bridgeport came to an abrupt end, with the onset of the financial Panic of 1893. Investors withdrew from the area, the Bridgeport Land and Improvement Company went out of business. Frank Kilpatrick returned to Bridgeport in 1895, managed to lure some industry to the city; the Mission Revival-style Bridgeport Depot was completed in 1917, two hosiery mills were operating in the city by the 1920s.
The construction of the nearby Widows Creek Power Plant by the Tennessee Valley Authority in the 1950s brought a small housing boom to the city. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.2 square miles, of which 3.1 square miles is land and 0.1 square miles is water. The city is situated along the western bank of the Tennessee River, at river mile 410; this section of the river is part of Guntersville Lake, created by Guntersville Dam about 60 miles downstream from Bridgeport. The Cumberland Plateau rises prominently to the northwest, the plateau's southern extension, Sand Mountain, rises across the river to the east. U. S. Route 72 connects Bridgeport with South Pittsburg across the Tennessee state line to the north, Stevenson to the southwest; as of the census of 2000, there were 2,728 people, 1,159 households, 793 families residing in the city. The population density was 875.4 people per square mile. There were 1,290 housing units at an average density of 414.0 per square mile.

Bridgeport is a historic seaport city in the U. S. state of Connecticut. It is in Fairfield County, at the mouth of the Pequonnock River on Long Island Sound, 60 miles from Manhattan and 40 miles from The Bronx, it is bordered by the towns of Trumbull to the north, Fairfield to the west, Stratford to the east. As of 2017, Bridgeport had an estimated population of 146,579, which made it the largest city in Connecticut and the fifth-most populous in New England; the Greater Bridgeport area is the 48th-largest urban area in the United States. The showman P. T. Barnum was a resident of the city and served as the town's mayor in the late 19th century. Barnum housed his circus in town during winter; the first Subway restaurant opened in Bridgeport's North End in 1965. The Frisbie Pie Company was in Bridgeport, Bridgeport is credited as the birthplace of the Frisbee. After World War II, industrial restructuring and suburbanization caused the loss of many jobs and affluent residents, leaving Bridgeport struggling with poverty and crime.
Bridgeport was inhabited by the Paugussett native American tribe at the time of its English colonization. The earliest European communal settlement was in the historical Stratfield district, along US Route 1. Closeby, Mount Grove Cemetery was laid out on what was a native village that extended past the 1650s, it is an ancient Paugusett burial ground. The English farming community grew and became a center of trade and whaling; the town incorporated to subsidize the Housatonic Railroad and industrialized following the rail line's connection to the New York and New Haven railroad. The namesake of the town was the need for bridges over the Pequonnock River that provided a navigable port at the mouth of the river. Manufacturing was the mainstay of the local economy until the 1970s; the first documented English settlement within the present city limits of Bridgeport took place in 1644, centered at Black Rock Harbor and along North Avenue between Park and Briarwood Avenues. The place was called Pequonnock, after a band of the Paugussett, an Algonquian-speaking Native American people who occupied this area.
One of their sacred sites was Golden Hill, which overlooked the harbor and was the location of natural springs and their planting fields. The Golden Hill Indians were granted a reservation here by the Colony of Connecticut in 1639. Bridgeport's early years were marked by residents' reliance on farming; this was similar to the economy of the Paugusset, who had cultivated corn and squash. A village called Newfield began to develop around the corner of State and Water streets in the 1760s; the area became known as Stratfield in 1695 or 1701, due to its location between the existing towns of Stratford and Fairfield. During the American Revolution, Newfield Harbor was a center of privateering. By the time of the State of Connecticut's ratification of the American constitution in 1781, many of the local farmers held shares in vessels trading at Newfield Harbor or had begun trading in their own name. Newfield expanded around the coasting trade with Boston, New York, Baltimore and the international trade with the West Indies.
The commercial activity of the village was clustered around the wharves on the west bank of the Pequonnock, while the churches were erected inland on Broad Street. In 1800, the village the first so incorporated in the state, it was named for the Newfield or Lottery Bridge across the Pequonnock, connecting the wharves on its east and west banks. Bridgeport Bank was established in 1806. In 1821, the township of Bridgeport became independent of Stratford; the West India trade died down around 1840, but by that time the Bridgeport Steamship Company and Bridgeport Whaling Company had been incorporated and the Housatonic Railroad chartered. The HRRC ran upstate along the Housatonic Valley, connecting with Massachusetts's Berkshire Railroad at the state line. Bridgeport was chartered as Connecticut's fifth city in 1836 in order to enable the town council to secure funding to provide to the HRRC and ensure that it would terminate in Bridgeport; the Naugatuck Railroad—connecting Bridgeport to Waterbury and Winsted along the Naugatuck—was chartered in 1845 and began operation four years later.
The same year, the New York and New Haven Railroad began operation, connecting Bridgeport to New York and the other towns along the north shore of the Long Island Sound. Now a major junction for western Connecticut, the city industrialized. Following the Civil War, it held several iron foundries and factories manufacturing firearms, metallic cartridges, horse harnesses and blinds. Wheeler & Wilson's sewing machines were exported throughout the world. Bridgeport annexed the West End and the village of Black Rock and its busy harbor in 1870. In 1875, P. T. Barnum was elected mayor of the town, which afterwards served as the winter headquarters of Barnum and Bailey's Circus and Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. From 1870 to 1910, Bridgeport became the major industrial center of Connecticut and its population rose from around 25,000 to over 100,000, including thousands of Irish, Hungarians, Germans and Italian immigrants. Among the initiatives, the Singer factory joined Wheeler & Wilson in producing sewing machines and the Locomobile Company of America was a prom
Bridgeport, one of 77 community areas of Chicago, Illinois, is a neighborhood on the city's South Side, bounded on the north by the South Branch of the Chicago River, on the west by Bubbly Creek, on the south by Pershing Road, on the east by the Union Pacific railroad tracks. Neighboring communities are Pilsen across the river to the north, McKinley Park to the west, Canaryville to the south, Armour Square to the east. Bridgeport has been the home of five Chicago mayors. Once known for its racial intolerance, Bridgeport today ranks as one of the city's most diverse neighborhoods. Bridgeport was called the "Portage de Checagou", Fr. Jacques Marquette and trader Louis Joliet traveled through in 1673, it technically remained under French control until 1763 British control until 1783 or 1795. A settler named Charles Lee or Leigh came from Virginia and settled along the south fork of the Chicago River by 1804, but soon moved nearer to Lake Michigan after Fort Dearborn was completed. In April 1812, two of his tenants escaped to Fort Dearborn, when visiting Winnebago proved unfriendly and massacred others at the trading post.
The Leigh farm remained uninhabited as hostilities escalated into the Fort Dearborn massacre by summer's end, remained so until the U. S. Army rebuilt Fort Dearborn in 1816. A Detroit firm sponsored a trader, John Crafts, who rebuilt the trading post, named it "Hardscrabble", it grew to a dormitory beside the trading post by the time of the Blackhawk War. Other residents who became prominent included metis trader Alexander Robinson, schoolteacher Russell E. Heacock, Jean Baptiste Beaubien. Heacock became a vocal proponent of the proposed Illinois and Michigan Canal, which led to the area's development in the 1830s, although others since the voyageur era had seen the potential replacing the portage with a canal. A limestone quarry was established in 1832 or 1833, which provided stone to improve the Chicago harbor. In 1836, the area was renamed the first Chicago neighborhood. In the 1830s, large numbers of immigrants from Ireland started settling in this working-class neighborhood, which became an Irish-American enclave.
Many of them had earlier helped build the Erie Canal arrived to work on the Illinois and Michigan Canal. Funding remained a problem, the State of Illinois began issuing "Land Scrip" to the workers rather than paying them with money. A large number of those Irish-Americans who received the scrip used it to purchase canal-owned land at the northern end of the canal where it meets the south branch of the Chicago River; the original Bridgeport village, named "Hardscrabble," was centered around what is now the section of Throop Street north of 31st Street. Bridgeport reflects its proximity to a bridge on the Chicago River, too low to allow safe passage for boats, forcing cargo to be unloaded there. Finley Peter Dunne wrote about this area in popular sketches around the turn of the 20th century. Dunne's protagonist, Mr. Dooley, lived on "Archey Road". Although the Irish are Bridgeport's oldest and arguably most famous ethnic group, Bridgeport has been home to many other groups. Bridgeport has been home to many Italian-Americans, as has its smaller neighbor to the east, Armour Square.
Many Lithuanian-Americans settled along Lituanica Avenue, which runs between 31st Street and 38th Place one block west of Halsted Street in what was once called "Lithuanian Downtown" and the center of Lithuanian settlement in Chicago. More large numbers of first and second generation Mexican-Americans and Chinese-Americans arrived. Like the 19th century Irish immigrants, they found affordable housing in Bridgeport and appreciated its proximity to their work. Bridgeport's Polish history is most visibly represented in its two churches in the Polish Cathedral style: St. Mary of Perpetual Help, St. Barbara; the Art Institute of Chicago performed restoration work on the paintings in the Shrine Altars at St. Mary of Perpetual Help which date back to 1890, with further plans calling for restoration of the stained glass windows and to complete the painting of the interior ceilings and rotunda; the Chinese influence in Bridgeport has followed in other ethnic groups in establishing neighborhood places of worship.
Bridgeport has been the home or birthplace of five mayors of Chicago, representing all but 10 years between 1933 and 2011, illustrating the neighborhood's influence on Chicago politics for most of the 20th century. These five men were Edward Joseph Kelly, mayor of Chicago from 1933 to 1947. Kelly, the elder Daley, Bilandic comprised an unbroken, 46-year period in which Bridgeport was home to the city's mayor. Richard J. Daley is acknowledged as being the architect of the Chicago's'machine politics' for a large part of the 20th century. Daley's base was rooted in Bridgeport's working-class Irish population with the 11th Ward as his vanguard; the 11th Ward Democratic party, headquartered in Bridgeport near

The Sims 3: Late Night
The Sims 3: Late Night is the third expansion pack for the strategic life simulation computer game The Sims 3 and is similar to previous expansions The Sims 2: Nightlife for The Sims 2 and The Sims: Hot Date for The Sims. It incorporates some elements from The Sims: House Party, The Sims: Superstar, The Urbz: Sims in the City; this expansion pack introduces a brand new city neighborhood named'Bridgeport', based on the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, divided into an urban/downtown area, a less dense uptown area, a hilly, affluent suburb. In The Sims 3: Late Night, your Sims can go out to the downtown area of the brand new world, Bridgeport; the downtown area includes: Dive Bars, Sports Bars, a Local Watering Hole, Dance Clubs, Poolside Clubs, Disco Clubs, Exclusive Lounges, Vampire Lounges, Fusion Lounges. All of these community lots have their own unique names, but some require for you to be a high-class Sim for your entry. With these new community lot types come new rabbitholes and high rises.
As a vampire your sim receives new abilities such as increased skill learning speed, the ability of reading other Sims' minds to find out their traits and relationship status, the ability to run faster than ordinary Sims. In Bridgeport there are some premade vampire families such as the Hemlock households. To become a vampire, you have to befriend or become friends involved with one and ask them to turn you. If The Sims 3: Supernatural is installed, the player can create a vampire straight from Create-a-Sim. If Sims are Celebrities they will get discounts or free food, fan mail and gifts from obsessed fans and your Sims will be able to get into the most high class clubs in the neighborhood. In Create-a-Sim there are more than a dozen new clothes and hairstyles available for your Sims and the new muscle definition is introduced. For the first time in a Sims game, players are able to choose the bust size for teen and elder females. There are 2 new traits: Shy and Star Quality. Sims that dance throughout the day get the Club Dance interaction.
In build mode, there are now half walls and a few new flooring, wall covering options and one new flowering plant. Additionally, pools can be placed on other building levels In buy mode, there are new objects such as hot tubs, strobe lights, dance floors, new object additions Sims can learn the Mixology skill, which allows your sims to mix drinks better at bars; these bars are available in Buy Mode. It is the first urban city of its kind to be featured on the Sims series games as most past neighbourhoods were either towns or suburbs. Bridgeport is designed to focus on late night activities, is similar in many respects to Downtown, a previous sub-neighborhood introduced in The Sims: Hot Date and The Sims 2: Nightlife expansion packs. However, Bridgeport is not a town but rather a major metropolitan city which based on New York City or other major city in the US. Therefore, it is a much larger version of a Downtown. With the official announcement of Late Night, it was apparent that a new town would be created to showcase the new features in the expansion.
It was unknown whether this would be a sub-neighborhood and thus similar to the Downtown of The Sims and The Sims 2, or whether it would be an new neighborhood although it is said that Bridgeport is 3 times bigger than Twinbrook. During a Twitter session, game producer, Grant Rodiek, confirmed the existence of a "downtown" that would be its own separate neighborhood. GameSpot, in an article released on August 16, 2010, revealed that the name of the new neighborhood is'Bridgeport'; the city of Bridgeport includes high rises and penthouse lofts, is made of multiple islands connected by bridges. Sims are able to both walk over these bridges, it has been described as "a mix of downtown San Francisco with the hills of Los Angeles/Hollywood just across the bridge". Bridgeport is divided into two main areas: an urban city center, a suburban area with luxury mansions. Bridgeport features new graphics for certain rabbit holes. An interesting fact about Bridgeport is that Sims here are much richer on average than sims in Sunset Valley and Riverview.
Bridgeport families start with around $5000 and there are several rich families with large houses you can play. There is the film career; the career puts emphasis on the Celebrity mechanic introduced with The Sims 3: Late Night, as it is a factor that influences job performance. Sims in the film career go to work at the new rabbit hole: Film studio, but are able to do other career-related tasks around the neighborhood, much like the Medical career, or the careers added in The Sims 3: Ambitions; some of these tasks include picking up food for shoots. Sims in the film careers can win awards, similar to the ones in The Sims: Superstar. Sims in the career can write movie scripts; the movie studio rabbit hole. There is a big emphasis on becoming a celebrity. Celebrities are fun for those who play the sims for the challenges, they fit with the penthouse suites, clubs with VIP lounges, bands. You can become a celebrity by befriending celebrities or impressing them by talking about your job, name dropping, or making things up.
You can buy a round of drinks for other sims at the bar
