If you talk about the Old American west, you usually remember one of these guys and it's about time a someone show their badassery in Cracked.
Gunslingers (A.K.A. gunfighters) - they are dudes who are dangerous with a gun. They could be either an outlaw, law man or just a bunch of trigger happy fools. There are two kinds of gunslingers, a historical gunslinger and a fictional gunslinger and both of them are badass.
These are the dudes who really kill people and most of the time people make shit out, which proves that they have Twitter back thenso they can write conspiracy theories.
But what the fuck, here they are:
Billy the Kid -
This dude is the face of awesome in his day. He killed a bunch of suckers, fluent is Spanish, a total ladies man, and a beloved folk hero. He is even left handed and his legend is still strong even upto this day. In short, he's the kind of person you'll never gonna be.
Wyatt Earp -
Besides being a bad ass he also became a farmer, teamster, gambler, saloon-keeper, miner and a boxing referee.
Wild Bill Hickok -
This guy became a stage coach driver, a lawman, faught the civil war on the union army, and was famous as a marksman, a scout and a gambler. He also owns two of these
Doc Holliday -
He hangs out with another bad ass, killed people, was gambler and a dentist which is needless to say, he must have use a gun to blow people's teeth off.
Because people can't stop making shit up they invented these guys because, no one in real life can replicate the bad assery of the Historical Gunslingers anymore.
The Man With No Name
He is portrayed by a real bad ass, Clint Eastwood and that is the only reson you thing you need to know.
An Confederate soldier, a bad ass tomahawk wielder and he will probably go out with Megan Fox so he's awesome.
The Lone Ranger
An iconic Cowboy. What's more to say???
This is a dude is traveling an alternate world/s, in search for a dark tower while ass killing hordes of a satan like figure. Not a bad back story taking into account that this guy is created by no other than Stephen FUCKING King.
