Pistol Clyde Gave To Bonnie


I think I have shown the above picture before. It’s the guns taken out of the car after Bonnie and Clyde got turned into a spaghetti strainers. A friend sent me the below picture today. I had no seen this one before.

“I owe you one” engraved on the side and given to Bonnie from Clyde.


      • Uh Shawn,while we are in the “corrective mode”might add a period at the end of your sentence to FTW in regards to his sharp observation.

        Just saying,otherwise you can have a article that mushrooms with a plethora of different errors.

        • Hmmmm……

          Technically speaking, the term “pistol” is a hyponym specifically referring to a handgun with a single integral chamber within its barrel.[2] The American Webster’s Dictionary defines it as “a handgun whose chamber is integral with the barrel”.[3] This makes it distinct from the other types of handgun, such as the revolver, which has multiple chambers within a rotating cylinder that are separately aligned with a single barrel;[4][5] and the derringer, which is a short pocket gun often with multiple single-shot barrels and no reciprocating action.[6] The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) legally defines the term “pistol” as “a weapon originally designed, made, and intended to fire a projectile (bullet) from one or more barrels when held in one hand, and having: a chamber(s) as an integral part(s) of, or permanently aligned with, the bore(s); and a short stock designed to be gripped by one hand at an angle to and extending below the line of the bore(s)”,[7] which includes derringers but excludes revolvers.

          However in common colloquial usage, the term is often synonymous with any handgun type, including all revolvers and derringers. UK/Commonwealth usage, for instance, does not usually make distinction, particularly when the terms are used by the military. For example, the official designation of the Webley Mk VI revolver was “Pistol, Revolver, Webley, No. 1 Mk VI”.[8] In contrast to the Merriam-Webster definition,[4][5] the Oxford English Dictionary (a descriptive dictionary) describes “pistol” as “a small firearm designed to be held in one hand”,[9] which is similar to the Webster definition for “handgun”[10]; and “revolver” as “a pistol with revolving chambers enabling several shots to be fired without reloading”,[11] giving its original form as “revolving pistol”.[11][12]

          Seems pistol/revolver interchangeable depending on whose definition you want to use,the plot thickens!

  1. Didn’t that “Tales of the Gun” on the History Channel do an episode on the “gangster guns?” Back when the History Channel had something other than a pawn store and junk merchants every second of the day.

    Not really related but of the same era, my rinky dink hometown’s claim to fame was having its police station robbed by Dillinger and crew. The only gun they didn’t get was a Thompson an officer had left in another office because he was cleaning it. The officer in question had went to get a coffee down the street. Lots of faith in the law enforcement of the day. Ha!
