For old west handgun fans, this one might fill a hole in your collection.

It's the gun Pat Garrett used to kill Billy the Kid.

But wait, there's more............
They are also auctioning off other firearms from folks like John Wesly Hardin, Bat Masterson, Wild Bill Hickok and the previously mentioned Billy the Kid.


Sell the kids, sell the house, farm out the dog, don't tell the wife as we may never see such a deal again.................


(By the way, all these folks have passed on, so they will not be making any more of their guns and I'm sure the new affidavits will soon be drying up pretty soon.)

Lotta fakes out there.  This one has excellent provenance however.
