There aren't too many lead-pumping, saddle-pounding westerns on TV these days, so it's easy to think of Justified's Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) as the best gunman around. Granted, he is pretty good, and after three seasons of busting meth heads and land speculators, he has built up a sizable ballistic body of work.
But where does the quick-drawing U.S. Marshal stack up when compared to the gunfighters of years' past? John Wayne, Charles Bronson, Clint Eastwood, and many more have played slick sharpshooters, so we took a look back at the baddest cowboys, marshals, and outlaws from the big and small screen in an effort to figure out who was the best in the Wild and/or not-so-wild West. These are The 25 Best Gunslingers in TV and Film History.
