Unbutton your holster and get ready for a quick-draw frenzy in this look at the legendary shooters of the Old West.
Some were outlaws, renegades who took advantage of anything and anyone in the quest for gold and glory. Others were lawmen, striving to bring some semblance of order to the Wild West. Sometimes, the line between the two blurred.
Load up and ride out with TALES OF THE GUN for a fascinating look at the legendary figures who blasted their way into history. Here are the stories of men like Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickok and Jesse James; men who shared a willingness to go to the edge, to pull the trigger and leave their mark in blood. Drawing on contemporary accounts, period artifacts and fascinating commentary from leading historians and weapons experts, we'll see how each of these GUNSLINGERS earned their place in Western lore, and examine the shooters that they kept strapped to their sides (when they weren't drawn for a showdown).
From the OK Corral to the Dead Man's Hand, here are the stories of legends who were defined by the guns they carried.
