    We see many Westerns where x is the fastest draw, and the most accurate shooter, but how many (aces) were there in the old west, did they use standard six guns?

  4. Ah draw at Chess, Bogoljubov is renowned as master drawer at chess. He usually offered a draw after the first move. But he was eastern (Russian) :uhh:
     
  5. It is possible that some of the scenes you have seen in movies are embellished.

    It seems that revolvers were popular from around the time that Colt made improvements in 1836.

    What's more, as I understand it, more people died in gunfights between 1880 and 1920 in the old west last night on TV than did between 1880 and 1920 in the old west between 1880 and 1920 in the old west.

    I always thought the Riviera Kid was the fastest gun in the west.
