The Wild Wild West.... known best for it's criminals and of course women who could shoot well. But I kinda that thinks the only people who ventured out this way. Great picks! Happy MM!

I just love those old shots of real people rather than the cinematic portrayals. They have a beauty all their own which seems so stark when compared to the pretty actors who brought them to the movie screens. Great MM x

Happy MM!

Is it just me or is the dude in the first picture on the right packing a little more heat than normal? Wild Wild West indeed.
