BLURB

One of the most notorious gun slingers that ever lived came in the form of a dame with a tight frame and looks that quite literally killed. Shotgun Sally and her gang of femme fatale’s would hold up any bank for sheer, unadulterated pleasure and Sally was notorious for making art with her weapon of choice. Some say she handled a shotgun like a paint brush. Able to pay attention to the tiny details by blowing them apart in a blaze of glory, she painted a picture of a bloody but gory big bang in its infinite wonder. After her final heist, she gave the law the slip. Legend has it, that her and her ladies got out of there with the cash and no trouble because they escaped in a police van. [Cecilia Garcia]
