About This Quiz

Back in the day of the Wild West, you had to either be really tough or really good at pretending that you were. Times were hard, and men were harder; if you weren't aware of your surroundings and careful at all times, you could wind up staring at the wrong end of the gun, and let's be honest, who wants that?

You know you would have been able to survive just fine when it comes to the Wild West. You look great in a cowboy hat, and who wouldn't want that opportunity to grow all sorts of super cool facial hair? But the question really is, which rough and tough Western Character are you? 

You seem to have the vibe and the presence to pull off being a sheriff, but maybe it would be just a little bit more fun to be an outlaw. Probably the coolest thing to be would be the fastest gun in the West, but are you up for that sort of pressure? 

Or maybe you're a drifter, coming into town not looking for any trouble, but finding it anyway. What are you running from? Take this quiz, and we'll tell you what bold Western Character you are. Saddle up.
