Correction:

Hardin preferred it, as did Jessie James and Wild Bill Hickok.

I live in Lincoln County, NM, so I best get this weapon.

You may have been thinking of the S&W .32 "Old Army" tip-up revolver that was found on Hickok's body after he was shot dead in 1876. He actually preferred his pair of Colt 1851 .36 cal cap and ball revolvers above all others.

Lincoln County, you bet you need this gun.

If you do and come to Albuquerque, FReepmail me, I have a couple boxes of .45 Schofield cowboy ammo I’d trade for the chance to shoot it.
