REMINGTON RIFLE USED IN AMBUSH

Remington Model 8 semi-automatic rifle
was used by Deputy Prentiss Oakley
to gun down Bonnie and Clyde






Remington "Police Special"
Used by Frank Hamer in 
the ambush of Bonnie & Clyde

Frank Hamer had special ordered the magazine
from the Peace Officers Equipment Company
in St. Joseph's Missouri.

He had the standard 5 shot magazine and replaced
it with a larger 20 round magazine. He had gotten
this weapon for one purpose only, to use in
the hunt for Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker.




Hamer's own "engraved" Remington Model 8





Items removed from Barrow death car

Among the items found in the Barrow death car was Clyde Barrow's
saxophone which was returned to Cumie Barrow along with her son's
other personal possessions and it ended up belonging to Nell Barrow
Cowan who held on to it for many years before it was discarded.





"ARSENAL ON WHEELS"


Part of the arsenal discovered in the "death car" on May 23, 1934

"THE INVENTORY"
Three .30 cal. Browning automatic rifles
One 20 gauge "sawed-off" shotgun
One 10 gauge "sawed-off" shotgun
One .32 caliber Colt automatic pistol
One .380 caliber Colt automatic pistol
One .45 cal. Colt "double action" revolver
Seven .45 caliber automatic pistols
One-hundred rounds of machinegun clips
Three-thousands rounds of ammunitions

Also a suitcase full of money had vanished. Barrow relatives believe that the
contents were later used by Henderson Jordan to purchase some land and a barn.

CUMIE BARROW'S LETTER TO FRANK HAMER
Mr. Hamer,
I am writing you again for Mr & Mrs Barrow,
as we never got no answer from the other letter
we wrote to you. Mr. Hamer,we have been told
here by Sheriff Smoot Schmid in Dallas that you
have in your possession some guns that were in
the car at the time you and the other officers
killed my boy Clyde. Now Mr. Hamer, I do hope
you will be kindly enough to give me those guns
as you know you have no right to try and keep
those guns. I feel you should think you have caused
me enough grief and hardships without trying
to cause me more trouble now. I have been told
you got out of the car three pistols and one
sawed off shotgun. Now I do know that my boy did
buy most of the guns he had so I don't see why
you should not return the ones you have to me.
You don't never want to forget my boy was never
tried in no court for murder and no one is
guilty until proven guilty by some court so I
hope you will answer this letter and also
return the guns I am asking for.
Mrs.C.H.Barrow
(Carl) Leon Hale
1225 So. Lamar
Dallas, Tx
