The Gunslinger
Black Ink Fiction

Stories about the ordinary citizens of the old west and their interactions with the gunslingers of legend. You can use any of the big names in your story (Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Jesse James, Wild Bill, etc.), but they should be secondary characters, with your MC as an ordinary, unknown person. Think of these as the stories that formed the legend and gave these fellas their clout.
