Sgt. Henry Foggers:
As we say in the Cavalry, a man without a horse is afoot.
When George, the hotel clerk, gives the sheriff a handgun, he says it was taken off of John Wesley Hardin, by Constable John Selman, who had shot Hardin on a Monday afternoon at the Acme Saloon in El Paso Texas. But the action takes place in 1884. In 1884, Hardin was in Huntsville State Prison, serving 14 years for the 1878 shooting of a Texas lawman. The shooting of Hardin by Selman in the Acme Saloon in El Paso would not occur for another 11 years: on August 19, 1895 (indeed a Monday), three years after Hardin's release from prison in 1892. It is doubtful any guns were removed from Hardin that day, because the sheriff of El Paso had outlawed the carrying of firearms within city limits.
