Bonnie and Clyde's Guns Sell for $504,000 at New Hampshire Auction

Two guns once held by Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were sold for $504,000 at an auction in Nashua, New Hampshire. In case you were wondering, yes, these guns were in their possession when they were riddled with bullets. The guns were just two of 134 items sold for $1.1 million where two thirds of the items were from Parker and Barrow, but some also belonged to famous criminals such as Al Capone, John Dillinger and Pretty Boy Floyd

The item that drew the highest bid was Parker's .38-caliber Detective Special that she had taped to her thigh when she was killed in 1934. It ended up being sold for $264,000. Barrow's 1911 Colt .45-caliber automatic sold to the same bidder for $240,000. Several items came from the estate of the late Waco, TX native Robert Davis.
