Stolen Gun Belonging To Davy Crockett Returned

From CBS 11 Dallas/Ft. Worth:

An important piece of Texas history is back safe with its owner.

This week, a thief stole the rare pistol once owned by Davy Crockett.

Mark Disanti collects military memorabilia. "I'm a history buff," he said.

But he said he never expected he'd buy a gun rich in Texas history.

It turns out the Deringer .44 caliber pistol he purchased was owned by American folk hero Davy Crockett, who was killed in the battle of the Alamo during the Texas Revolution back in 1836.

God, can you imagine? Holding such an amazing piece of history in your hands. I am glad that the guy did the right thing and returned the pistol.
