Or the B & W westerns where the bad guys take over a town. DIDN'T HAPPEN. The good guys with shot guns and rifles would have killed the bad guys. Pistols weren't worth a damn except in the saloons. There, they kept pretty civil tongues in everybodies mouths and then there was, again, a shot gun behind the bar. Worked well into the 1920's-30's in most of the Mountain West.
