The Guns on the Gun Wall

With the exception of the Colt Dragoon, the guns below were purchased by Gary's maternal grandfather. While working for oil companies, he travelled all over the United States as well as to many countries in Africa and the Middle East. He was not really a gun collector, he just bought interesting things during his travels.

The Dragoon has been passed down the maternal side of the family since it was used by Gary's great-great-great-great grandfather in the Civil War (we lost). In keeping with its matriarchal lineage, this gun is properly Kendal's as a direct inheritance from her great grandmother; Gary was tasked with keeping it until she has a good place to display it.
