4.03 In the Beginning (Young Elkins)
Elkins is a hunter who lives in Manning, Colorado. He has been hunting since at least the 1960s (as Dean sees when he flicks through Elkins' journal). His specialty was hunting and killing vampires. He taught John Winchester a lot about hunting, but they parted on bad terms. In 1973, Dean steals the Colt from Elkins, he tells him it will be with the Campbells in Kansas. Elkins again had possession of the Colt before the Winchesters obtained it in 1.20 Dead Man's Blood. Elkins is killed in his home by vampires in November 2006.
In 6.18 Frontierland. Sam and Dean go back to 1861 and borrow the Colt from Samuel Colt then use it to kill a phoenix. Dean drops the Colt just before he and Sam are transported back to the present day. It is possible that the Colt was retrieved by the saloon owner Elkins. In the present day, the Colt was originally in the possession of Daniel Elkins and it's possible that the Elkins of 1861 was an ancestor who passed it down to him.
