FOX News – Top Stories – WYATT EARP AUCTION Famed lawman’s guns will go to highest bidder

It’s high noon for one Arizona auction house that says it has two guns once owned by the legendary gunslinger Wyatt Earp.

The Arizona Republic reported that J. Levine Auction & Appraisal listed two guns, including a Colt .45-caliber revolver, that descendants of the famous lawman say he carried in Tombstone and possibly the shootout at O.K. Corral.

“This is American history here — and not only is it that, it’s Western folklore..This gun, the O.K. Corral shootout, it’s lived on where other stories have not stood the test of time,” Josh Levine, the owner of the auction house, told the paper.

He reportedly said that he expects 6,000 bidders and thinks the two guns will fetch about $275,000.

My guess is that this estimate will turn out to be way low.  I’d expect something over a million bucks.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
