: Mary asked:
: : I do have one question about
: : the gun, for real -- does anyone know if the Killdeer on display
: : at Chimney Rock is one of the models, or is it the real thang?
: Mary, I was told when I last visited the park that it was the one he carried during filming, but now that I know there were several (the lightweight version, etc.) I am also curious...perhaps Marie could fill us in. She actually got to TOUCH the goodies inside the glass case, believe it or not...!! (The last time we were there, I stood for such a long time with my nose pressed up against the glass that people started to worry...Mark told them I was having a religious experience!)
: Marie, can you help us? Which Killdeer is on display? Anybody?
My computer croaked on Saturday, so I'm doing this from work. (Yes, Uncle Rich, you will be getting a distress call!)
Anyway, that's the real Killdeer. The prototype Daniel carried before the filming began is much lighter. Killdeer was made by a man named Wayne Watson. I'd love to see some of those talented people show up at our get-together in June.
