If this one goes as much as the one in the link I'm posting, you're going to get one Hefty Commission on the sale. It went for $110,000

I am sure Rick on pawn stars would give you 50.00 after all he has to have his specialist authenticate it just because some old paper work any one could have printed out and had notarized

all in fun Kasey its a great find and Hope it does well for you and the owner

Wouldn't call that provenance to the 5th degree, but good luck to anyone that buys it.

It was gifted to the NRA, they accepted it, later deciding they didn't want it so they moved it on, not from a lack of storage space for sure.......I didn't know they did that ???

I'm guessing for the same reasons that museums part with items.....keeping inventory insured, stored, displayed and such is costly. Sometimes items are sold or traded off for better inventory to offset costs and to gain funding to keep operations running.

"The detailed affidavit is conformation that this was owned by Al Capone."

I think you spelled confirmation wrong.

“Vick’s Rod and Gun”. ... classic


Although always described as a cowboy, Roswellnative generally acts as a righter of wrongs or bodyguard of some sort, where he excels thanks to his resourcefulness and incredible gun prowesses.

Now that I know he owned a 25 ACP, I think a lot less of him.

"When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace." -Jesus

"Also he [David] bade them teach the children of Judah [the use of] the bow" -Samuel

"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." -Col. Jeff Cooper

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain
