Famous outlaw and lawman firearms have always been captivating. Gerry and Janet Souter’s Guns of Outlaws: Weapons of the American Bad Man is the latest shot at famous guns, the last being in 2003 and 2008.
This beautifully illustrated volume offers a basic evolution of firearms and those who used them. Of the 99 gun specific photos, 44 are “attributed” guns. Others are aptly used to illustrate various types. Unpardonable is Wild Bill Hickok’s first name stated as “William” (twice); a photo of a Hudson Terraplane street rod instead of vintage; and an over-reliance on Internet sources.
