“At one table, surrounded by rows of flintlock rifles and Winchesters, a Colt single-action Army revolver sat in a display case for visitors to the 64th annual Original Missoula Gun Show. A sign in front of it showed a quote from its first buyer, and his photo.
“The West is dead,” it said. “You may lose a sweetheart, but you won’t forget her.”
The quote is from Charlie Russell, the artist who captured scenes of the beauty, savagery and comedy of the old American West. He never got a chance to fire his 7½ in. .44-caliber revolver. It shipped just 8 days after his death in October 1926.”
