Great story, Rapaire! The trouble with those gunslingers, though...if you humiliated them publicly you would just have to kill them as soon as possible after that, because their pride wouldn't be able to let go of it, and they'd be sure to kill you at the first opportunity to restore their image if you didn't do it to them first.
So I figure the old prospector would just have had to kill that young gunslinger and be done with it...or never be able relax enough to fall asleep again.
Still, I love the story. It makes a good point.
