Question: How did Chigurh get his gun back? After the shootout in the hotel, when Moss is first hit, occupies the car and then shoots Chigurh, Chigurh disappears and Moss takes his gun. Moss then drives to the border with the car, and presumably dumps them somewhere or leaves them in the car. Well, when Chigurh later kills Carson Welles, he has his gun back. How did he get it back? Did he find the car, if it was in there? Did he buy a new one?

Answer: It was a different gun. He kills Carson with a shotgun, while the gun Moss picks up is a silenced SMG by the looks of it.
