Yeah, I got this one - but as hokey as it is, this pistol was from a TV series and fetched a good payday when it was auctioned off...

You got "OLD BETSY" correct it was the actual name of Davy Crockets rifle he named it after his first girlfriend not his wife. Anybody got any other guesses on the other 3 real famous rifles? Ill give you a few hints. "OLD BULLTHROWER" was a Hawkins, " SUGARLIPS" a Kentucky longrifle and "LACRICIA BORSIA" was a Springfield model 1868 50-70 government. Enough clues?
