I am an avid fan of the old west and have been reading some on Johny Ringo. Most of what I have read describes him as a cowboy but none of the articles give any proof that he was ever in that line of work. The same is sometimes said of Earp though to my knowledge he never worked as a cowboy. It would be interesting to know of how JR made his living on a day to day basis. If you could shed some light please reply.
Thank You
Dick Wilson

                What ever guns Johnny had when he died were with him when him by the tree. We always assumed they were picked up by the sheriff.

                  I have seen one of the guns. Apparently my great-uncle was there when he died. As they moved his body the gun from his boot fell out. I was told that my great-uncle grabbed it and turned it into the... more
