Color Me Corrected

I was complaining about the TV movie Bonnie and Clyde because Frank Hamer was using what appeared to be a FN Model D (Not available in North America in 1934).

Got a better look at some stills.

William Hurt is carrying a Colt Monitor R-80 which was available in 1931.

Frank Hamer did, indeed, have one and it's in the Ranger's museum now.

I'd always read he'd used his Remington Model 8 during the ambush though.

I'd gotten confused between the R-80 Monitor and R-75 too.  The R-75 is more the normal BAR.
