Good news, wealthy collectors of somewhat-grisly crime memorabilia: You can now own guns some of Bonnie and Clyde’s guns.

Guns found on the bodies of the notorious crime are for being sold at the RR Auction in Amherst, New Hampshire. The guns –Bonnie Parker’s Colt .38-caliber revolver that she kept taped to the inside of her thigh, and the .45-caliber pistol Clyde Barrow’s that he kept tucked in his waist band — are expected to go for between $100,000 and $200,000.

The weapons were recovered from the 1934 ambush in Louisiana that cost the duo their lives and was later immortalized in Arthur Penn’s 1967 film “Bonnie and Clyde.”

“They were pretty famous in their moment and I think that’s lasted through time,” RR Auction vice-president Bobby Livingston told the Associated Press.

Other items in the auction include Clyde’s gold pocket watch, Bonnie’s cosmetic case, a leatherette box that was in the Ford the couple was driving when they were ambushed, and a letter from Clyde to his brother L.C. Barrow. CNN reports that there is expected to be over 100 outlaw related items at this auction.
