  1. Miller built the tourist trap of Two Guns using Native Americans, he made it to look like the ruins of a old town with the Apache Death caves as a main feature. Two Guns was named after his two daughters, who were considered a couple of pistols. He also initiated the zoo out in back of the complex. He never lived in a cave or harassed people who approached.
