  1. Sounds like they had a dual like in the old days of the west in ColoFornia Springs and shot each other.

    1. Don’t confuse wild west shoot-outs with actual duels (note spelling). Duels were pre-arranged fights of honor, with matching weapons, fought in accordance with agreed rules.
      .
      Most of today’s gunfights are drug-related, and there’s no honor involved. In fact, cowardice is the most general attribute of the participants.
