Working on my next set of rules. Interested in your favorite fights, weapons and "characters". Can be real or Hollywood, for example Matt Dillon with a Colt Buntline Special at the OK Corral. Can't guarantee they'll all be in the rules but I'll give it a shot! Cheers! Lee

Well, I like John Wayne in…well, just about anything, but let's go with Rio Bravo, with that shortened Winchester with the oversize lever loop (was that the right movie for that weapon?).

Yul Brynner in The Magnificent Seven. Heck, there's all of them, though only James Coburn has special weapons (his knives).

And then there's Clint Eastwood's Josie Wales, which gets you some nice blackpowder Colts.

But my favorite (with a special weapon) is Tom Selleck from Quigley Down Under (and his nice long barreled Sharp's).

Favourite hero – Thomas Cochrane, RN
Favourite fight – HMS Speedy vs Spanish frigate Gamo
Favourite weapon – apart from the ship's armament I guess the trusty RN cutlass and the captain's ingenuity :)

Martini Henry in anything.

Elfego Baca's classic shootout/ fight has to be at the top of the list. Other heroes-- Michel Ney-- hands down. No special weapons needed-- just guts.

I'm rather fond of Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday in Tombstone.
