Some of the Bonnie and Clyde guns are up for auction and expect to catch a fair bit.

Gotta love the journalistic expertise in action when they call it an extra 'clip' :whistling:

Cool, i'd love to be able to have one of those guns, it seems to me that any gun that they had on them at the time of death, would have signs of being shot? would love to see what they look like.

Not often you're going to see an American criminal's murder weapon up for auction; you know that thing's got some body's tied to it.

That Bonnie chick was crazy as hell. I'll bet that she gave old Clyde some serious rides - crazy in the head, crazy in the bed.

This is definitely a time that I wish I was rich. That's some serious firearms history.

This.

Like many people, I find the story of these two fascinating. The idea of actually being able to own these guns? Wow.

And assuming the 1911 wasn't hit and ruined in the hail...

Yes, I would have it gone through by a skilled smith, brought to working order, and I would shoot it.

Hell, I'd probably EDC it for a while.
:rock:

Having seen a picture of the gun, it appears to have not been hit? surprises the hell out of me.

I think stuff like this belongs in a museum for all to see.

Clyde Barrow was known to keep his 1911's wedged up under his legs, or thigh area when driving in a car for ease of access. Might be why it wasnt struck by any incoming rounds.

They were an interesting couple for sure. They fought their way out of some very tight spots, being heavily outnumbered, thanks to Clydes' skills and the BAR which he preferred. Firepower, skill and nothing to lose go a very long way I guess.

...certainly a deadly combination.
