DALLAS (AP) - Somebody got Annie's gun, though the person did have to pay $293,000 for it.

A shotgun once owned by the legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley sold at auction Sunday to an anonymous buyer.

Oakley found fame in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show. She was fictionalized on Broadway in "Annie Get Your Gun."

A great-grandniece of Oakley put her 16-gauge Parker Brothers Hammer shotgun up for auction.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions sold it. The buyer also obtained the gun's canvas scabbard and documents of authentication.

A charm bracelet owned by Oakley also was put up for auction and was sold to a separate buyer for $245,000.
