The Colt Walker revolver was carried into battle by the Texas Rangers during the Mexican-American War, named after the captain who commissioned its design. Nearly 200 years later, one of those original handguns was unearthed in, of all places, a bedroom lock box in Montgomery County, the end of a journey that covered thousands of miles. "They are the most historic, and historically important, revolvers," said Herb Glass Jr., the firearms historian who authenticated the Walker for Alderfer Auctions, a clearinghouse in Hatfield. Glass estimated that out of the 1,100 Walkers manufactured, about 160 survive. Alderfer's auctioneers place that number closer to the high 30s.

"You can dislike guns all you want," Glass said.

And if you do, you're an anti-American prog who should move to The Land Dewn Undah.
