The Gun That Won The West

A Colt 45 six shooter at the Autry Western Museum

There is no more romantic firearm than the Colt six-shooters that blazed across the west as the country was settled.  Make visiting the Autry National Center a part of your experience when you tour Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  The Autry Museum in Griffith Park, across from the Los Angeles Zoo, is a world renowned cultural center whose mission is to tell the story of the west from the perspective of ALL the people involved (settlers, native Americans, farmers, ranchers and visitors).  Among the many ongoing exhibits is the firearms display with over 130 Colt handguns and artifacts.  There are also Winchester rifles on display and many other examples of firearms of those times.  Whether you live in or around Los Angeles or are visiting from afar, take an opportunity to spend some time at the Autry and better appreciate those Zane Grey novels that you so love.
