Old West Gunfights.

Legends of America has a list of Old West Gunfights -not the ones in the movies, but the ones in the history of the American west. The real gunfights were quite different from the movie versions.
Instead, these fights were usually close-up and personal, with a number of shots blasted from pistols, often resulting in innocent bystanders hit by a bullet gone wild. Much of the time, it would be difficult to tell who had even “won” the gunfight for several minutes, as the black powder smoke from the pistols cleared the air.

Sixteen gunfights are detailed at the site. Link -via Grow-A-Brain
