"'Gunslinger' typically refers to the men of the Old West who gained a reputation for being skilled and dangerous with a gun. Among the ranks of these popular legends are outlaws and lawmen alike, although we know today that the line was often blurred, hence the enduring reputation of the gunslinger as an unpredictable and wily opportunist. For the purposes of this article, however, I use 'gunslinger' to refer to an armed man who offers the service of his presence and skills to protect a client's material interests." (12/23/11)
