Some of the various firearms used by the Barrow Gang.  From top: Clyde’s 1918 B.A.R.; Model 1887 10 gauge “riot gun; Remington Model 11 "sawed-off”; Bonnie’s Remington “Whipit” gun; Frank Hamer’s Colt Monitor .30-06; Clyde’s “Scattergun” (which I believe is a 1918 B.A.R.); Winchester Model 1887 lever action 12 gauge; Winchester Model 1887 lever action 10 gauge; and Clyde’s Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine.

Sunday Gunday with Brownells Employee Kelly B with his Win. 1887 10 gauge Shotgun! Kelly told us this story about it! “I have a passion for old Winchesters. When a neighbor of mine found out that I collected them, he came over one day carrying an old gun sock. It turns out the old gun sock had a 10 gauge Winchester Model 1887 inside it. My neighbor said, “Kelly I would like to give this to you with the understanding that when you are done with it, please give it to your son.” I have enjoyed this piece of Winchester history ever since, and someday I hope my son does too.”

Magnolia

1899

Oil on canvas

This painting shows the London-based artist’s daughter holding a sprig of magnolia blossoms, which in Victorian literature were often a sign of a character’s love of nature. The costume and the stylized fleur-de-lis motifs that decorate the green backdrop suggest a somewhat contrived presentation of the girl as a “dress-up” princess. The artist’s only child and one of his favorite models, Kitty Shannon (1887–1974) appears in many of his paintings. She later wrote several books, including an autobiography, published in 1933.

IAC 1887

A Chinese made clone of the Winchester Model 1887. Chambered in 12 gauge. Although cheaper than the originals, these clones are not always reliable and have been know to be hit or miss regarding quality. It’s not to say they are all plagued with problems; many work fine out of the box but in essence to the old adage, you get what you pay for. (GRH)

man when mw2 came out it was fucking wild guys flying around with the commando pro + tactical knife combo dodging bullets, people taking half of your team down with that suicide javelin glitch, and getting sniped across the map with the blinged fmj akimbo model 1887s. i miss it
