    Description

    Elvis Presley's .38 Forehand & Wadsworth Revolver with Box. This double-action .38 F&W Break Top revolver was found in Elvis Presley's Palm Springs home after the King moved from the residence, and it is believed this was his. Elvis owned many guns (and knives!) and was usually "packing", even on stage, according to his chief of security in the mid-1970s, Richard Grob. The gun's in Fine to Very Fine condition with some tarnishing to the finish. Included here is the wooden Corina cigar box in which the gun was stored, and a copy of an article published in People magazine in the late 1990s by Bruce Fessier, who wrote for Palm Springs' newspaper The Desert Sun, which offers an intriguing glimpse into Elvis' interest in law enforcement in general, guns in particular, and his time as a resident of Palm Springs. This meets the Federal Firearm Requirements (FFL).
