"so familiar are the people generally with the use of firearms"
"The pistol, rifle or shotgun is a dangerous thing to play or experiment with, yet in this region the dangerous character of the weapon is hardly considered, so familiar are the people generally with the use of firearms. The citizen who makes an experiment or a fancy play with the weapon is sometimes apt to get seriously hurt."--Dodge City Times, Dodge City, Kas., December 14, 1882. "A Twirling Shot Strike A Cow Boy." Seventh Year. No. 343 Pg. 1]
