    Tom Horn died by hanging in Cheyenne,Wyoming after the wealthy ranchers of the day deserted him. Read Chip Carlson’s book, Blood on the Moon, for the facts of Horn’s life.

    From what I have gathered, many of the gunfighters were violent racists, and a significant number of their victims were former slaves who wanted to vote.

    Ive been in several gunfights, people have no idea how scary it is when your trading rounds with someone trying to kill you. Movies and books glorify gun battles, trust me there is no glory in killing someone. Its kill or be killed. Most of those guys back then were trying to make a name for themselves in lawless lands drunk on wisky. Theres a big difference between a gunfighter and a killer, most of those guys were killers.

    #1.Captian Johnathan Davis. Its alot easier to kill 50 in 10 years than it is to kill 11 in one fight.

    Scott Cooley, a pal of John Ringo’s from the Mason County War, Cochise County Sherriff, John Slaughter and Will Carver of Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch are all more deserving to be on this list than Wyatt Earp. Murdering unarmed homesteaders from hiding was Tom Horn’s style. Harvey “Kid Curry” Logan should be 2nd to Wes Hardin, yet he wasn’t even mentioned.

    The most famed gun slinger was actually a slow draw. Went by the name of no names, that is to say he never attended to a single identity. It is proven that he participated in single handedly killing over 1132 and gave the United States a tactical advantage unintentionally in it’s original formation.
    His name which is thoroughly documented to be the most well known identity was John Rambo.
