A trio of guns that were owned by two of the Wild West's best known personalities have sold at auction for a whopping £305,000.<br />

The weapons, which were sold as individual lots, belonged to Calamity Jane and Wyatt Earp.<br />

Calamity Jane, real name Martha Jane Canary, is best known for appearing in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show and being an acquaintance of Wild Bill Hickok.<br />

Wyatt Earp meanwhile was an Old West lawman and professional gambler who took part in the infamous shootout at the O.K. Corral in 1881.
