    Russell described the man's gun as "a 40-caliber big shiny silver handgun." The man pushed her into the motel room just as her husband was coming out of the shower, she said.

    "In the process, I recognized what I had seen before — I was a deputy sheriff for many years — that this guy was used to this," Russell said. "I suddenly realized that it wouldn't bother him at all to pull the trigger."

    Russell and de Caro — both described as expert shots — were legally carrying concealed handguns, she said. She said she offered to search her purse for something of value to hand over to the gunman — and slipped her gun into the purse, which she then handed to her husband.

    Might be RT 66 but here in town it is also Central Blvd. and most of it is pretty dicey, especially where the inexpensive motels are located.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Only better tabloidish-thread-titled, NM-related numerical possibility was if the Motel 6 in question would have been on or near Gallup's at-one-time-named Hwy. 666.
