Bonnie and Clyde’s Historic Arsenal Up for Grabs
Just over 78 years after their epic final stand near Gibsland, Louisiana, Bonnie and Clyde are once again in the news. Four firearms from their notorious arsenal, all handguns, are up for sale. The pieces are bona fide American law enforcement and firearms history, as well powerful pop culture materialized, so I thought I’d take a closer look.
The pieces included are a stolen M1911 that came from a National Guard armory that Frank Hamer took from Clyde’s waistband after their final shoot-out, a Colt New Army .45ACP that was floating around the car, a classic FitzColt, and (from Bonnie’s cold, lifeless, 23-year old thigh where it was held there with white hospital tape) her personal Colt Detective snubby.
