Romantic gun collector forks out $504,000 for Bonnie & Clyde weapons10/1/2012
Turns out gun enthusiasts are really romantics at heart. An anonymous Texas gun collector paid $264,000 for Bonnie Parker's Colt Detective Special .38 and $240,000 for Clyde Barrow's Army Colt .45 on Sunday – forking out $504,000 to keep Bonnie & Clyde's pistols united. The outlaws were gunned down in 1934, but their violent legacy seems forever etched in the American psyche. The pair pulled off a string of murders and bank robberies, depositing glam snaps of themselves at the crime scenes, like Bonnie posing with a cigar. We can just imagine the Instagram pix the pair would be posting if they were pulling these stunts today, along with YOLO tweets from @Bonnie&Cyde. [Source]
