    I would have to agree with Mat Dillon. James Arness made the landing at Normandy on D-Day. Real man, real hero.

    Of course Audie Murphey goes w/o saying. Pretty hard to top his real heroics.

    The Rifleman, with Chuck Connors. I loved that Winchester 1892 (even though he couldn't actually have one in the 1880's). You just don't %&@$ with him. :cool:

    %&@$ = mess. What did you think it meant? :D

    I forgot about Tom Selleck. I think he is probably the last of the real cowboy actors in the spirit of the Duke.
