Listen Up - Advice


Listen up, gunfighters. Wyatt Earp had this to say, take note:

The most important lesson I ever learned was the winner of a gunplay usually was the one who took his time. The second was if I hoped to live on the frontier, I would shun flashy trick-shooting, grandstand play, as I would poison. In all my life as a frontier peace officer, I did not know a really proficient gunfighter who had anything but contempt for the gun fanner, or man who literally shot from the hip.



Shooting at a man who is returning the compliment means going into action with the greatest speed of which a man’s muscles are capable, but mentally unflustered by an urge to hurry, or the need for complicated nervous and muscular actions which trick shooting involves.


Some say, foolishly, that the Western is dead. That's a negative, check this out:

Are you prepared to enter the Tombstone vs Wyatt Earp debate?

LL, you remind me to spend more time at the range, especially with pistols.

Mr. Infidel, I hold back, for now.
