I was surprised years ago to learn that Billy the Kid used a Starr double-action revolver. Who ever heard of this one? Not me. Recently we toured the National Firearms Museum at the NRA Headquarters at Fairfax Va. We saw an exhibit which displayed what was supposedly the carry gun of John Wesley Hardin. It was a weird-looking double action revolver. A very ugly handgun. I was under the impression that the west was won by the Colt Peacemaker. Apparently, only the "candies" and "gutless wonders" carried the Peacemaker. The real gunfighters carried odd and weird off-brand double action revolvers. Can anyone shed any light on this?
