The pistol retrieved from inside the skirt of Bonnie Parker of the infamous gangster duo, Bonnie and Clyde, is up for sale. The historic piece of evidence will be auctioned on January 25th. Law enforcement officers found the pistol as Bonnie was prepped for burial in 1934. Auction officials say the semi-automatic .38 caliber Colt, complete with the clip and six bullets, has a pre-auction estimate of between $125,000 and $175,000. The winning bidder will also get historic photos and documentation of the duo's last stand, including a photo of the bullet-riddled Ford 4-Door Sedan. Bonnie and her partner Clyde, whose last name is Barrow, were ambushed by law enforcement officers in Louisiana.
