Ah. I see where you're coming from.

Well, okay, since there also was a Lucky Luke comic adventure on that topic. But on one condition (as to make it fairer to the others, as well as maybe more challenging to you):

I'll allow it, if it's art, or if it's a photographic image from the 19th century.

Re: ENTER! Misc. Av.Contest: Gunslinger legends

Looking for just that (vintage photos of those machines) I happened upon something else, something with someone posing a real bandit -WITH a gun- from 1903 though -but a real person -I think I'll be going with that instead.

Strange, isn't it: how googeling for images always brings up stuff you hadn't thought about in the first place.

[And: that Lucky Luke album was the first thing that jumped to my mind on this theme ]

I forgot this was in Misc

And I didn't remember before having already made an entry:

I wonder if that will still count as "Media."

Re: ENTER! Misc. Av.Contest: Gunslinger legends

Even when searching for 'theatre curtains' it didn't occur to me that I was framing part of a film Yeah, it probably cunts as media so I'm trying to put together a different thing: dead bandits.

Although... they probably overpriced the popcorn and the softdrinks in theatres even back then, legendarily so

I don't know. Maybe anything over a hundred years old should count as History instead of Media.

We should get a ruling from the contest-runner.

Sorry, but you'll have to resize it. Entries can't be larger than 150x150 pixels.
That aside, nice one!

@trekkiedane: Sorry, but that's obviously Media and no actual Wild West legend. Better go with the one-armed bandit.
