I'd fill you up with lead but then again...you are full of lead.
Having a face to face gunfight was pretty much rare in the Wild West. Chances are you'd be shot in the back by a sore loser from what you thought was pretty successful poker game or by a jealous rival vying for the attention of one of the saloon gals. No Hollywoodesque showdowns. We need to thank City Slicker journos, whose minds were filled with visions of Arthurian jousts exported from Victoria Britain, for this somewhat rose tinted embellishment .
