In the "Westerns Anyone" thread, a member posed the question as to whether or not the Gun Club hats were "westerns". I posited that they were more outdoor/safari. I think you are much more likely to see Gun Club hat on someone shooting clays or hunting than on a cowpoke.

While I have no idea as to whether or not he was the inspiration, when I think of the Gun Club hats, I think of Gunsite's Jeff Cooper:

Yes, the Gun Club hats aren't westerns, but are outdoor hats. The lower profiles and shorter brims are to be more conducive for shooting sports.

Stetson has used the name “Gun Club” on a wide range of hats. There are stingy brims, pork pies, and the current wide brim quasi western outdoors hats. The latter are my favorites. I’m currently looking for a Dune in Acorn.

My current Dune in Sandstone:
