Well, the guys made it to Episode 30 and to celebrate they chat about gunslingers of the old west. It seems as though most of the outlaws of the day, and lawmakers for that matter, ended up getting shot and going out like they lived. It was an interesting time and very different from today. Could we relate to their problems? Could they possibly relate to ours? It’s doubtful that dropped calls and credit card rates were on the top of their pet peeve lists.
It seems as though some of the most notorious outlaws in America’s wild west history got their start in not-so-vicious ways. Billy the Kid was defending himself when he killed his first man. Then, like today, some of the good guys got their start on the wrong side of the law. It’s nice to have that outlaw mentality when trying to think like and catch the bad guys.
