OriginEdit

John Wesley Hardin (1853 – 1895) was an American Old West outlaw, gunfighter and controversial folk icon. Pursued by lawmen for most of his life, he was sentenced to twenty five years in prison for murder in 1877. When sentenced Hardin claimed to have killed forty two men, the newspaper however reported only twenty seven. In prison he studied law, wrote a biased autobiography and was released in 1894. One of the stories in his autobiography was that he shot his friend Charles Couger for snoring. Couger died a week later from a bullet wound but no one could confirm or deny that it was Hardin who had shot the man.

EffectsEdit

Those shot by it won't die for one week, then drop dead. Even if the wound is superficial (such as infection in the leg) the victim dies from the wound after a week.

TriviaEdit

Inspiration for the episode One Night at Mercy of the 2003 Twilight Zone reboot.
