    Hey guys,
    Since school is over and I am sort of a gun nut, I wanted something interesting for my spare time.

    I was always interested in guns (and related items) from WWII, but this time I want to branch out a bit: I want to learn about the old west.
    They're guns; ways of life cities, all of that schtick.
    Anyway, does anyone here know any books or articles containing anything at all about the old west? Mostly in the 1880-1920 time, where they still rode horses and stuff... I realize that the years may be a bit inaccurate, but that goes to show how much I do not know and eager to learn.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Read a few biographies too!!
    The ones of lawmen from the era are always interesting. Almost as interesting as my own life...
