How close? ... pistols are "up close and personal" weapons... more like very

Genera verses real-world for the "un-western" opinions... you need to either
commit to "shocking" folks or frame the adventure more to the "real" flavor
if running "John Wayne" western guys.

Clint dedicated "Unforgiven" to Sergio, who got to frame the shooter and
victim in the same picture which american censors disallowed at the time...

The film "looked" different as a result.

Adventures are WAY subject to this.

I've seen YouTube stuff about "celebrity" RPG sessions.

The poor, conceptually locked, "this is all the medium can do", fools.
