Rollin Gardner Busts More Than Kid Curry's Chops

September 17, 2012

   Went home for lunch and whipped out a couple scenes for the next Classic Gunfight. Here is Kid Curry taking a bullet through his left bicep, his breast bone (took out two ribs as well) and coming out his right bicep. Needless to say, this must have hurt.

Curry had just shot Rollin Gardner's horse out from under him and was turning his attention to another posse member coming up Gibson Draw when Gardner came up from behind his dead horse and shot Curry.

This is Gardner shooting at Curry after the Kid shot his horse from under him. I believe I am correct in assuming Gardner lost two horses to the outlaws when they raided his ranch a day or so earlier and now the bastards had shot a third horse of his. If so, no wonder he shot to kill.

"I'm all in and might as well end it right here."
