    Hee! In a somewhat related note, the shotgun used by Wyatt Earp to blow Curly Bill Brocious nearly in half is going up for auction:

    Might make for an interesting "human psychology" study in what all of these actually end up going for - the semi-high-end bolt actions that are "special" simply by serial number, versus the fairly pedestrian-grade double barrel that is "special" for having participated in an era-defining event.

    Don't hit the buy it now button by mistake.
    They should be in either the NRA Museum or in Cody.
    As for the price? Who knows? Something is worth what someone is willing to pay

    We all do our duty when there is not cost to it, honor comes easier then. Sooner or later there comes a day in every man's life when it is not so easy, a day when he must choose and live with it for the rest of his days.

    I have a model 70 in 30-06 made in 1939 that I would let go for a good deal less than that price.

    It's interesting to see what some of these famous guns sell for.
    Several years ago, Jack Ruby's brother sold the 5 shot S & W .38 that was used to kill Lee Harvey Oswald.
    Seems like it sold for about $20,000.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    Think you're off by a factor of 10.
