Bill’s favorite rifle, an 1866 Springfield…

Had me a blast showin’ off “Lucretia Borgia”, the Springfield .50 caliber buffalo gun that Buffalo Bill used to provide meat for the railroad workers. Good money… 12 buff a day for $500 a month. Some folks might hold him in contempt for takin’ out about 5,000 of the 70 million buff that once roamed the plains, but there weren’t any Burger Kings back then, and folks needed to eat!
