In my morning paper on Mondays, I get a little insert entitled "American Profile". I'm sure y'all get it too just maybe not on Mondays.

Anyway.......on the inside cover there are questions to the editors and there was one about Sammy Davis, Jr. guest starring on "The Rifleman" series as a fast gun. They went on to list several other "60's"!!! stars that were also "known for being quick on the draw". Audie was the last one they listed. Others were Glenn Ford, Clint Eastwood, Robert Fuller, Ben Cooper, Hugh O'Brien.

Of course, we've discussed this here before and know who the fastest was! :D

I suppose there might have been a few who could match him for speed, but I would be very much surprised if there were any who could rival the combination of speed and accuracy that had kept him alive in the war.

The people who tried to pick fistfights with him were usually idiots or jerks; the people who tried to goad him into doing the quick-draw thing with them were even bigger idiots, IMO. :lol:
