A Dream Turned Ray Simpson Into a Hero

ray-simpson-blogRay Simpson had a dream—somebody tried to vandalize his hardware store in Delta, CO, and he had to shoot the intruder.  That dream caused Simpson to have his Sharps rifle ready and loaded on the morning of September 7, 1893.

So he was prepared when the McCarty Gang tried to rob the bank that morning.  The sharp-shooting Simpson ran outside and fired three times at the fleeing bad guys—two outlaws died and the third just barely got away.  Simpson was hailed as a hero, and all because of a dream.
