A century ago, an unknown BOUNTY HUNTER merged w/my family linage. I found this out May of ’93 during a trip to Virginia to research family roots. Kind-of fun piecing together history. We poured over County docs & the clerk sent us to an old cemetery— not too far from Hurricane, VA. In that overgrown null lay a large family of nine children, side-by-side, all distant kin. #4 tombstone stated he lived 19 years. Curious, I browsed the County Records on #4: “Robbed bank. Retrieved by Bounty. Died by Hanging’”
I just had to chuckle— reminded me of the ‘ole Robert Fuller song: “I fought the law and the law won.”
So whenever I see these EAA Bounty Hunter revolvers, I think of that distant relative. I often wonder what was going through his mind the moment he robbed Wells Fargo; the moment he fled the County; and that moment he was staring down that Bounty Hunter’s revolver. Wouldn’t it be cool if we had more to the story?
I think what we all like about these SA revolvers is that they relic the spirit of the ‘ole west. When we shoot these vintage babies, we’re reminded of a time in America when “a speedy trial” was exactly what you got. Break the law? Well it’s time to pay— and today is as good as any— from a revolver.
I have the Bounty Hunter in .357 blued or stainless. And then I have the rarer 22/22M in a stainless!
