Default Dillinger Guns for Sale

http://money.cnn.com/2009/07/07/news...ion=2009070711

""Dillinger's derringer, a miniature pistol that was found in the outlaw's sock when he was arrested in 1934, is going up for auction on July 25 and is expected to fetch $45,000.

Meanwhile, the gun that felled Dillinger, one of America's most notorious criminals, could bring in $12,000 when it goes on the block on July 22 - the 75th anniversary of Dillinger's death.""


I think I'd rather have the one that felled him...


""The sheriff who originally arrested Dillinger later gave the Derringer to Evelyn Jenney, described by Heritage Auction Galleries as "an attractive young widow.""

...I can't imagine what he received in return!

It's a bit of false advertising actually. The gun may have been carried at the Biograph by Captain Timothy O'Neill but it wasn't fired that night. Dillinger was killed by two FBI agents. One of the guns is now in Oklahoma.

A little off the subject, but I remember reading a few years ago that Dillinger's Thompson (Tommy Gun) was donated to a museum somewhere. I don't remember where the museum was. It had been in the FBI's evidence for all these years.
I could be way off, but thats how I remember it.
