AFIK it's because a $2 pistol is supposed to be stolen.

The idea is that a cheap gun is made of cheap materials, and will heat up quickly when fired; cheap metal doesn't conduct heat as well as heavier, more expensive metal.

I heard this phrase continually from my father growing up and am wondering the same thing. I see no comments from anybody, did you ever get an answer?

if there a literal interpretation? What is a "two dollar pistol" and why is it considered "hot".

He came to town as hot as a two dollar pistol,
He was rearin' and ready to wail,
But when he left he was cold as a refrigerator,
Cause we rode him out of town on a rail.
