DEATH OF AN ANGRY GUN


FLORENCE, ARIZONA MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

Folks, in the old west, friends were, made and kept and later to turn into bitter feuds. Here is one entitled .

DEATH OF AN ANGRY GUN

by Nat McKelvey who writes of the friendship turned sour of a Sheriff and his Deputy. In fact, it turned into a street killing in Florence, Arizona as reported and indexed below. Turns our, it was the most fantasting shoot-out in the history of the old West, and the most bitterly-engendered. It aqlso had the strangest motive. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the friendships turned sour are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY WEBSITE AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES.

BUYITNOW!

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western heroes. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

DEATH OF AN ANGRY GUN

by Nat McKelvey

PHY-GABRIEL MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete and seldom found western magazine of many years ago. This is a very hrd to find collector’s issue nearing 50 years old and a treasure in itself. The issue is in excellent condition, the cover is pristine and in vibrant color.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada. $4.75 Priority Mail. $11.00 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
