Outlaw weapons bring in big bucks

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - Two guns once in the possession of notorious gangsters Bonnie and Clyde when they were killed in a hail of gunfire have sold at a New Hampshire auction for more than half a million dollars.

The guns were two of 134 artifacts that sold Sunday for a total of $1.1 million at the auction in Nashua. About two-thirds of the items were from Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker. Items also came from other notorious criminals.

Bobby Livingston of RR Auction said Bonnie Parker's .38-caliber Detective Special that she had taped to her thigh when she was killed in 1934 in Louisiana drew the highest bid and sold for $264,000. Livingston said Clyde Barrow's 1911 Colt .45-caliber automatic sold for $240,000 to the same bidder, who didn't want to be named.
