Richard Boone as Paladin - HAVE GUN - WILL TRAVEL

"I don't think you got a very good look at this gun while you had it. The balance is perfect. This trigger responds to a pressure of one ounce. If you look carefully in the barrel you'll see the lines of the rifling. It's a rarity in a hand weapon. This gun was handcrafted to my specifications and I rarely draw it unless I mean to use it. Would you care for a demonstration?" -- Paladin

Facing down a villain, Paladin once said "I told a friend I wear this gun for survival. As bad as you need killing, I'd prefer to live by that conviction." Of course, the bad guy pulled his gun and Paladin shot him down.

Paladin lives at Hotel Carlton and charges $1000 for his services. His calling card reads: "Have Gun-Will Travel. Wire Paladin, San Francisco.
