Where Kurt Cobain Purchased The Shotgun He Used

On March 30th 1994, Kurt Cobain and his best friend Dylan Carlson went Stan Baker Sports in Seattle and purchased the shotgun that he would eventually use to take his own life. The shotgun was a Remington Model 11 20-gauge, set up for light load. Kurt took the shotgun to his house so it would be there when he got back from rehab in Los Angeles.  This what the Remington Model 11 shotgun looks like…

Stan Baker Sports have since relocated down the street.  Here is what the old location looks like today.


Here’s the receipt for the shotgun that was found in his jacket pocket at the crime scene.

Kurt Cobain’s Obsession With Guns

    To discuss Kurt Cobain's or Vince Foster's death without mentioning Oxford Professor Reginald Alton, handwriting expert, is silly. The Professor upset Hillary Clinton on October 25, 1995 when he and two other handwriting experts (Ronald Rice and Vincent Scalice) stated at a meeting in Washington that the Vince Foster Suicide note was a forgery so now Alton has been banned from Wiki and will not be on Cobain's or Foster's page. Oxford University can not create a page for Alton on Wiki !

    how can you commit suicide with a 45 inch shot gun its too long to pull the trigger

    He could have pushed the trigger easily with gun butt against floor with his hand or even a toe. Dont be stupid.
