The one that I still think about today is a 32-20 Colt Single Action that I saw at a small gun show in the Texas Hill Country back in the late 1970's. It had been found on the Rio Grande, was rusted shut with the hammer in the full cock position over a live round and the last two rounds that had been under the hammer had been fired. The trigger had long since rusted away. I suspect that the owner/cowboy's body was either not too far from where the Colt was found, or he was located, but not the Colt. Probably was involved in a running gun battle on horseback and he lost! I tried to buy the gun, but it wasn't for sale at any price or at least what I could afford to offer at that time! Man, what a story that old Colt could tell!!!!!!!
