I remember this show!
It was pretty darn good from what I remember.
I only saw like 3-4 episodes but what I did see was excellent.
And it was produced by Henry Winkler. (aka The Fonz')
Too bad there's no DVD available otherwise I'd definitely buy it.
Maybe Susan can find some of the episodes online for us.
Here's the official synopsis:"Mystical frontier firearm featured on Showtime's western series DEAD MAN'S GUN/SHO/1997-99. Set in the Old West of the 1870s, the series followed the trail of a haunted gun (allegedly "forged in hell") as it passed from person to person and (for good or bad) effectively changed their lives. Legend has it that the Dead Man's Gun grants whoever possesses it unforeseen powers. At the conclusion of each episode, the poisonous pistol lies in wait for its next unwitting victim.
Critics referred to the series as “a cross between BONANZA and THE TWILIGHT ZONE."
Here's a pic of the gun...
