An anonymous bidder paid $920,000 for this .44-caliber Colt Walker pistol yesterday in Fairfield, Maine. James D. Julia Inc. says this is thought to be the highest price anyone has ever paid for a firearm at auction. "Yee-ha," the gun's owner, John McBride, said as the winning bid was announced, according to the Morning Sentinel. "We did better than we had hoped." The auction house says this "rare and historic" Colt Whitneyville-Walker pistol was issued during the Mexican-American war. "It is truly one of the greatest prizes of Colts in existence," auctioneer James Julia tells the paper. ==== Nice looking piece but no way in hell I'd spend that much for it even if I had the money to burn.
