Guns meant everything to Colley Donato. He was sixteen when he first shot someone - with an Astra Firecat pistol. Earlier he had clubbed his way with a baseball bat to the top of the Oriole Boys' gang in the Bronx. There, at 19, he held his first grocery store. By the time he and Jocko killed a cop in a liquor shop, he was using a 38 Detective Special and his guns mattered more to him than his women - than Jeanine, with her whiff of brimstone, than Terry, the girl who turned hooker.
