no brag, just fact

Can anybody tell me where that line came from? You have to remember old television westerns to cough up the right answer, but I am certain that I have some old farts like ME who recall that show. I'm not gonna give you any hints, but you need to be dragged off and shot if you don't know the right answer.

My daddy always told me that it wasn't braggin' if you could back up your words with deeds. I think that I got my lack of humility from him. He also said, "Talk BIG... but be ready to walk that way, too."

My daddy knew a lot more than most people do today.


The Guns of Will Sonnett

Okay, smartass, you are correct. Now... what was the shootin' trick Will Sonnet could do?

That line was said by Walter Brennan. He played Will Sonnet's father and Dack Rambo was Brennan's grandson. Will Sonnet, Dack's father, was the guy they were always searching for.

I loved Walter Brennan in everything single Western he was in. Wasn't he the grandpa in The Real McCoys? I loved that one as a kid.

No idea. I guess that means I lose the "smart ass" title, eh?

Typical, just typical.

Damn I can't even type my initials right, how do you expect me to know gun tricks from an obscure tv show. hehe

OK smart ass - who was the original star and who took over after his suicide?
