What happened to Matt Dillon's gun Is it in a museum or does James Arness have it?

For many years all the TV shows and movie studios in Hollywood got their guns from "Stembridge Gun Rentals" They were around since the 1920`s and furnished props on many movies and tv shows. They went out of business in the late 1990`s and their inventory of guns was sold in a special auction.The gun Matt Dillon used in "Gun Smoke" was among those sold along with guns used by Dan Blocker as "Hoss" on "Bonanza" and "Little Joe"`s gun as well. And many others. They are all in the hands of private collectors now. The last i heard Little Joes`s and Hoss`s guns are on display at the "Buffalo Bill Museum" in Wyoming.

For the record Dillon packed a Colt single action model 1873 71/2 inch barrel in 45 caliber. It was an actual antique made in 1895, not a modern day copy. When it sold at auction along with the gun and holster were papers from Stembridge stateing it was the gun used in the series along with an afadavit from James Arness himself. It sold for $15,000.00.

What is the best way for students who have never been to a a museum before view the exhibits productively?

How to learn at museums the first timeIf one has never visited a museum, one should follow this basic structure.

1. Make a plan. Using a map, look at the possible routes through the museum. Make sure to include most of the exhibits you want to see.

2. Distribute notepads and pens. Have students copy a sentence or 2 about the exhibits that catch their eye. You can all share answers back in the classroom.

3. It is NEVER too late for a lunch break! Make sure to visit shops and food areas to kep your students from nodding off!

4. During lunch, sit with the children and ask questions about the museum and take requests for places to visit next.

5. In the classroom, have students take out their notebooks or paper and call on children to read their explinations out loud. Write them on the blackboard, and ask that the students copy them. Once this is done, make a word wall of some kind regarding what you saw today and assign for the kids to look up different aspects of things they saw.

  • tips*

Remember, a museum is also fun. Encourage talking about exhibits. Museums can be as fun as amusement parks. Always make bad mummy jokes at Egyptian exhibits, or any bad joke pertaining to the subject manner. And, if you can, get an offical or an expert to lecture the kids on the subject matter. Kids can pick up alot from a 10 minute lecture!

Is Mary Magdalene really buried beneath the inverted pyramid in the Louvre?

Your guess is as good as anyone's. If you read certain popular contemporary literature as non-fiction instead of fiction, then I guess you can fairly make the claim of yes, since it's not likely that the floor of the Louvre will be destroyed or dug up anytime soon to check the veracity of that claim. However, for those who picked up their copy of that certain popular literature, to which this answer previously referred, in the Fiction section of their local bookstore, it should be noted that, as exciting, engrossing, and entertaining as the story is, there is no evidence to support the claim put forth by the novel in regard to the final resting place of Mary Magdalene. To be fair, however, it should be mentioned that there is no evidence to support that it's not true either. However, the burden of proof lies in proving what did happen rather than what didn't. So, as far as history, most churches, those who are capable of separating fact from fantasy, Louvre Officials, Historians, Theologians, Archeologists, and the French Government are concerned, until proven otherwise, the remains of Mary Magdalene are not underneath the Louvre in a grave covertly marked by the inverted pyramid.

AnswerI think that she is not...because if you think of it logically...how was she even related to anything French?

Okay, the person that typed the sentence right above me is stupid you know why? When Mary Magdalene realized that she was pregnant with the baby of christ ,her and someone else fled out of the holy land and traveled to France when she got their she had her baby and the people of France were going through something called the Witch Hunt where they believed that all women are bad and they killed Mary magdalene and put her in a sacred tombstone and supposedly that tombstone IS under the pyramid inside the Louvre.

Another answerInterestingly the above answerer calls the previous one stupid. Then goes on to tell us that Mary Magdalene was pregnant with Christ's child. Who is the stupid one?

The part of the puzzle that I don't understand is couldn't someone at the Louvre find out if the sarcophagus is actually there? Someone at some time must have put it there, if it really is there, and I'm certain they would have told subsequent managers of the museum that it was there. And if that's not the case, couldn't someone just go and check?? Maybe I'm wrong, and there is no way to enter the basement of the Louvre. But it would be odd if the basement was completely sealed off.

Discussion:

Okay this is not a public chat site...as some sites that encourage such stress-reduction methods are. Anybody who would like to answer this question should come forward and straightaway find himself/herself doing so. We teen researchers are being misled by these unusually embarrassing comments on each others' answers!!!

Answer

"Magdalene" is derived from the Hebrew word "Migdol" or "Tyre". The English word for "Tyre" is derived from Israel's ancient name for Tyre or Rock (Tsor) and it is the word from which English gets 'tower', 'tyre', 'tour', 'town', 'turret'. "Migdol" or "Magdala" was a nick-name the ancient Israelites gave to the people and cities of Tyre. In circa 940 BC, Solomon gave twenty cities in Northern Israel to Hiram II of Tyre. The latter was actually displeased by this according to the Biblical record. These cities, and other Phoenician cities, got the nickname because of the towers the Phoenicians traditionally built on their cities (to defend the precious merchandise contained therein).

One such place was Magdala on Lake Capernaum (Galilee, Tiberius). However, there seems to be little evidence of a tower in that particular case. There probably would not have been towers (or turrets) there because the commercial treasure in that place was fish in the lake. The Phoenicians were animal traders and fish farmers as well. "Tyre" or "Phoenicia" were bywords for commerce.

The real question is why a Phoenician woman would be chosen to be the world's representative at the Garden of the Tomb when Jesus resurrected. Firstly, in the Mediterranean world, Phoenicians were the most evil people in the world. Greek playwright Menander always used Phoenicians as the baddie. The Syro-Phoenician woman who pleaded with Jesus to heal her daughter from a demon, with Jesus seeming extremely reticent - hardly the 'Gentle Jesus meek and mild' of the lullaby - was obviously seen as a baddie in that episode. Of course, that was part of Jesus' message. He came to save the sinners. He consented to healing that woman's daughter and Mary Magdalene is probably that daughter.

What most people overlook is that two ancient Israelite prophets, Elijah and Elisha, both resurrected a Phoenician woman's son (Apologies, not "daughter" as said in a previous edit) in the 9th century BC. That was at a time when Israel was rejecting the messages of Elijah and Elisha. A similar situation existed in circa 29 AD when Jesus met that Syro-Phoenician woman.

The obvious conclusion from all this is that just as Elijah and Elisha resurrected the dead son of a Phoenician woman, the Son of God resurrected and was first seen by a (very sinful, baddie) Phoenician woman's daughter. One may say this is all rubbish but it is difficult to see how, why or under what circumstances a succession of Jewish scribes between 800 BC and 50-60 AD put such odd and very un-Jewish stories or fables in the collection of books known as the Bible. One would have thought the examples of Elijah and Elisha, and the embarrassing reflection on Israel, would have been long deleted from the record. It is strange that they were retained, even after Jesus referred to them when he castigated the adherents at the synagogue in Capernaum.

The wisest course of action is to accept the historicity of these accounts, not worry about where she was buried and recognise that Mary Magdalene confirms the accuracy of the accounts about the Resurrection of Jesus, hence the events leading to that resurrection, i.e., the death and burial and the events leading to the death of Jesus, i.e., in His Ministry etc., etc., back to His (miraculous) birth as a human and back further all the way back to His Eternal existence as Creator. The whereabouts of the Magdalene's body is unimportant compared to these other matters. Most likely, the bodies of Mary, her mother, Elisha (Elijah ascended to heaven to return to us at a later date, probably quite soon) are resting undisturbed in places that only the Lord will find at "The Resurrection" of all believers.
