Bought that and two .22 rifles all for $200. She wouldn't take a penny more, even though I offered it.

Wyatt Earp had a 10 gauge lever action shotgun that he carried on foot patrol in Tombstone. A couple of years ago my sons and I had the pleasure of getting our pictures taken holding his shotgun when we were in Tombstone. The owners of the Tombstone Museum gave us a private tour and showed us many items that were not on display, this shotgun being one of them.
That is so cool...for some reason i am fascinated with the wild west era of American history. I read all i can about the people, guns, etc from that time period, but have never been to any of the significant places..

Flash suppressors allow the use of baby seeking bullets (commonly used in ARglock47s) and create 800% more satanic purposes . have fun!!!

You really have to question the folks at the Tombstone museum? Wyatt left there after the "Vendetta" in 1882. After being an Idaho lawman and "The Dodge City" war he moved to California.
In 1887 Wyatt Earp was operating three popular saloons in San Francisco. How could he have been carrying a Winchester Mdl. 1887 10 Ga. Lever action in Tombstone? Tourist Traps make a living fooling the public.

Now that's a good point right there!

It's black and we all know that black rifles cause good people to go mad with the desire to kill nuns holding refugee babies. And I'll be willing to wager you have high capacity pocket mags to hold untold nuclear powered cop seeking baby killer bullets. That's right, we all know that these killer bullets will kill cops when they are still babies!!

I just hope you are happy with yourself. Sure it will start of slow. Only killing deer wearing leather jackets that talk back to their mothers. But the blood-lust will know no bounds and soon you will be on the corner looking for learning impaired six toed does to make new victims of. Do you feel good about yourself now six toe doe killer?!?!?!?!
..HMM..Six Toe Doe..That be an AWESOME band name. Like maybe Six Toe Doe and the Five Mile Smile band. I'd go see em..

..Oh.And you have an evil rifle...

It was several years ago. He may not have claimed that Earp carried it on foot patrol. I am going off of my memory which is not so good. As I recall (again with a faulty memory) it was expected to bring over $75K.

We were there several years ago when we were RVing all over the south with the kids, schooling on the road. It gave us many opportunities that we would not have had otherwise. The Tombstone Museum was closed on the day we went there but when they saw us peering through the window they let us in and gave us the tour. We were there most of the day, with both of them available to answer any questions we had. Very informal. They even refused the regular "donation" to tour the museum. It was in many ways typical of the many encounters we had with other people along the way who were intrigued by home-schooling.

I love lever actions myself. Killed my 1st deer with one, 1st buck with one and several others through the years. Fun guns to shoot. My fav is the savage 99 in .308 on the far left. Gave it as a X-Mas gift to one of my sons this past X=Mas.
