Bonnie and Clyde Guns Sold at Auction

Two guns once owned by notorious outlaw couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were sold at an auction in New Hampshire this past weekend.  The auction was put on by RR Auctions and had the theme "Gangsters, Outlaws, and Lawmen."

Two guns were carried by Bonnie and Clyde when they were ambushed and killed by law enforcement officers in 1934.  Bonnie Parker’s Colt Detective Special .38 revolver sold for $264,000, and Clyde Barrow's Colt Model 1911 semi-auto pistol went for $240,000.  Other items at the auction included Bonnie Parker's cosmetic case and a collection of wanted posters, including one for John Dillinger.
