There is some interesting correspondence going on right now on the Soapy Smith Discussion Forum. Come on over and check it out. You are welcome to join in (beginners too). Feel free to ask questions, make comments, etc.
Bits to consider
Matt Deach of Skagway informs me: “Frank Reid's gun is owned by Ryan Rapuzzi of Skagway, who I believe lives in Anchorage now.” At this time I have not been able to locate Ryan Rapuzzi. Anyone with information on this is urged to contact Jeff Smith.
