The Strange History of The Six Million Dollar Gun

 September 7, 2021

   Sometimes when you track down the back story of a current event it gets very strange and interesting. This is one of those stories.

Mrs. Garrett's late husband (gunned down in 1908) loaned this famous gun, prior to his death, to a prominent saloon owner in El Paso, Texas. What happened from there is a very strange and interesting story. One I intend to pursue in the magazine and in the next Facebook Live segement next week.
