There’s just no denying that Texas produced its fair share of stone-cold killers in the latter part of the 19th century. Men like John Wesley Hardin, King Fisher, Clay Allison, the outlaw Sam Bass, and of course the notorious Deacon Jim Miller. And then there’s Bill Longley, considered by some to be one of the deadliest gunmen of the west. A tall b…
 
In the summer of 1877 Chief Joseph and the peaceful Nez Perce went to war with the U.S. Government in a running fight that spanned four states and 1,170 miles. Who was Chief Joseph? Why’d Buffalo Bill call him “the greatest Indian ever produced?” And why did the Nez Perce go to war? I’ve been looking forward to this episode for a long time so witho…
 
Discovered sometime prior to 1952 in the Florida Mountains of Southwestern New Mexico, the “Last Stand Note” - written on a piece of tobacco paper and stuffed inside an empty shell case - reads as follows: This is our last shell and about 10 Indians left so our chances look slim, but we are going to take a chance. Yours truly, Wm Bonney. Did Billy …
 
When Felipe Espinosa and younger brother Vivian were feeling bloody, the bodies were sure to follow. And in the spring and summer of 1863, there was certainly no shortage of bodies.

In 1864 famed frontiersman Kit Carson took a force of several hundred soldiers into the heart of the Llano Estacada in an attempt to punish the Comanche for their recent raids.

Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, Doc Holliday, Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickock - These are the names of legends. Names I think most people – even those with no interest in old west history – will find familiar. But for every one of these guys there were a dozen others who were every bit as deadly and capable with a firearm, if not more so. Men who didn’t …

On this episode we’re going to talk pirates, we’re going to talk about mountain men and the fur trade, we’re g…
 
On May 6th, 1877, just ten months after the battle of Little Big Horn, the legendary Crazy Horse led nearly 900 Lakota & Cheyenne to Fort Robinson, Nebraska. It was time to surrender. Five months later in October of 1877 Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce would do the same. To fight no more, forever. Sitting Bull of the Lakota would hold out until May o…

After that he spent years patrolling the tough streets of Dodge City with the likes of Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and Charlie Bassett before moving on to Oklahoma where he did more of the…
 
The old shoe salesman wasn’t as spry as he used to be. A fact his aching and crackling joints made abundantly clear to him each and every morning when he climbed up out of bed. But he found that once he got a few cups of strong coffee in him, he didn’t feel all that bad. Real coffee, though. Not Chicory. He’d had more than enough of that as a young…

But Joe Medicine Crow was much MUCH more. “With an education, you’re the white…
 
Ned Christie: Ruthless Cherokee outlaw or courageous hero? Murderer or innocent man? If someone had asked me a year ago who Ned Christie was, I’d have probably said he was just another Indian Territory outlaw. In the same vein as Cherokee Bill or Henry Starr. And I don’t think I’m the only person out there with this misconception. Back in the 1970’…
 
At the sound of galloping horses, the bandit killer drew his ivory handled colt. It was good for 6 shots and - while there were only three bandits - they were riding hard and fast and straight at him. Conditions that don’t necessarily enhance one’s ability to shoot calmly and accurately. Strangely enough, even as the bullets began to crack past the…
 
In the spring of 1883, a group of very dangerous men began gathering outside of Dodge City, Kansas. Men with names like Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, Shotgun Collins, and Doc Holliday. Killers, all of ‘em. Men familiar with the weight of a revolver in hand and the smell of black powder smoke. They gathered to rally around one man, their compadre who h…
 
When one thinks of the great judges of Yore, certain names stand out above the rest. Names like Judge Harold T. Stone. Judge Judith Sheindlin. Judges Wapner, Mathis, and Joe Brown.

Veteran of the United States Army, Law School graduate, Elvis aficionado, Tennessean born and bred, author, actor. Husband and father. You may remember him as E.B. Farnum in HBO’s Deadwood, or Sheriff Bud Dearborn on True Blood. He played Lippy on my favorite western, Lonesome Dove, J.F. Sebastian on the cult sci-fi hit Blade Runner, he had a broth…
 
I've labored long and hard for bread, For honor, and for riches, But on my corns too long you've tread, You fine-haired sons of bitches. These are the words of Black Bart, the gentleman bandit who preferred to leave poems at the scene of the crime rather than dead bodies. Black Bart wasn’t a killer and he never really hurt anyone, except maybe for …
