Firearms have been a part of life in South Dakota since the first European explorers arrived on the Great Plains in the 1700s. They were an important currency between whites and Native Americans. Settlers coming to the wide-open plains of Dakota Territory depended on them for both food and protection. In the hands of buffalo hunters, they nearly wiped out an entire species. They’ve been used to commit crimes, but they’ve also been used to enforce law and order. At one time, nearly every South Dakota family had at least one gun. And every gun has a story. DVD. Approx. 60 minutes.
