    Controversial Wyatt Earp Guns Up for Auction

    By Ben Romans

    Guns that reportedly belonged to Wyatt Earp, one of the most iconic figures of the Old West, are slated to go on the auction block on April 17 at the J. Levine Auction & Appraisal in Scottsdale, Ariz.
    The owner of the auction house, Josh Levine, told the Arizona Republic the collection also includes guns owned by Virgil Earp and their grandfather. But the centerpiece is a .45 caliber revolver Earp descendants say he carried in Tombstone, Ariz.; possibly at the infamous shootout at the O.K. Corral.
    “This is American history here — and not only is it that, it's Western folklore... This gun, the O.K. Corral shootout, it's lived on where other stories have not stood the test of time,” Levine said.

    Bad Ammo: Flowershell Load Blasts Seeds into the Ground

    By The Editors

    Here's your dumb idea of the day: the Flowershell, a shotgun shell that disperses seeds.

    According to the creators, it's a standard 12-gauge shell with a reduced amount of gunpowder and a shot cup full of seeds (12 different varieties from sunflower to carnation) instead of lead. The idea is that you go around blasting these things into the ground to grow flowers.

    NRA Sporting Arms Museum Displaying Unique Serial No. 1 Guns

    By Ben Romans

    The NRA recently unveiled a new exhibit showcasing 29 firearms sporting the unique serial number of “1” at its Sporting Arms Museum in Springfield, Mo.
    A short description posted on the NRA’s blog says the pieces on display include a Smith & Wesson Schofield, Colt .40 caliber Model 1851 Navy, and a Springfield Sharps Model 1870. While the significance of a No. 1 serial number often indicates a piece is the first of a particular model, it can also represent a “batch number” for firearms produced before unique serial numbers were mandated by the Gun Control Act of 1968.

    NRA Takes Aim at Calif. Gun Control Bill

    By Ben Romans

    A FOX news story from Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013 says the National Rifle Association (NRA) plans to sue the state of California if Governor Jerry Brown signs a bill that bans the future sale of most semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable magazines.
    The article says the bill, sent to Brown last month, would outlaw an entire class of weapons that includes most "assault rifles," and change the assault-weapon definition to include any semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine or a fixed magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. On its website, the NRA said the bill is unconstitutional and “would make unprecedented changes to California’s already unjust and byzantine ‘assault weapon’ law.”
