Article does say that his regular carry was a SAA 45 Colt named Ol' Lucky

... in case anyone else besides me had their romantic notion of the wild west jeopardized by the inclusion of a Luger in the picture.

I like the Luger, like Hammer's rifle too, the Model 8 Remington.

I got a cell photo of one of Frank's Colts at the NRA Museum in Springfield a couple of years ago.

"Old Lucky" was a blue, engraved SAA and may be seen here.

Texas Ranger museum in San Antonio shows several of his guns on display there along with Bonnie & Clyde's get away car. Well worth a visit.

actually, it's in Waco, but that's sorta on the way to San Antonio from here.
it's well worth a full day's visit however you get there.

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

You do have a great sense of humor.

Do not fear the Enemy, for your Enemy can only take your Life. It is far better to keep the Media at bay, for they will Steal Your Honor.
