OriginEdit

Buckskin Franklyn Leslie (1842 - 1920) held a multitude of jobs including, U.S. Army scout, gambler, rancher, miner, gunfighter and con-man. He was known and named for his fringed buckskin jacket. His later years were much of a mystery but he was said to be married at least three times, killing the last two. In both cases he had been drunk and jealous of his wife for flirting with other men and shot her. Leslie was sentenced to life in prison however he managed to con an aid to Governor Benjamin J. Franklin of Arizona convincing her to get him a full and unconditional pardon. Upon his release he married Mrs. Belle Stowe and seven years later divorced her by shooting her with his rifle. Towards the end of his life he married one last time to Nora Cast, luckily for Cast Leslie vanished, leaving his rifle behind. There are no public records of what happened to him.

EffectsEdit

Leslie's constant anger and jealousy was imbued into the rifle. Just having the rifle in one's possession will cause a married man to eventually kill his wife, often with the rifle itself.

CollectionEdit

Rifle is displayed on a plaque in The Schoningen Armory high enough that married Agents wouldn't be affected by the rifle. It is just a safety precaution as in order to be effected one would need to have it in close proximity for hours a day.
