Guns of notorious Bonnie and Clyde set for auction

The guns of the American outlaws and lovers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow have become lots in an auction in New Hampshire. 38-caliber revolver Bonnie used to secure to an inner thigh with white medical tape and 45-caliber Colt Clyde used to tuck into his waistband were recovered by the authorities after the couple was dead during a 1934 ambush by law enforcement officers.


In January, a submachine gun and shotgun reportedly seized at one of Bonnie and Clyde's hideouts was sold by a Kansas City auction firm for $130,000 and $80,000, respectively. According to the auction officials, this time each Bonnie and Clyde weapon could bring between $100,000 and $200,000. The auction will be held in New Hampshire on September 30.

FBI files say Bonnie and Clyde met in Texas in 1930 and were believed to have committed 13 murders and several robberies and burglaries by the time they died.
