Or as UD said, pure ego, a chance to make a name for themselves in this new world.

I see your point.I make a distinction between someone who's good with a gun and a gunfighter. Gunfighters, in the classical sense, are just that. Their existence is the gun and they use it to advance themselves and their reputation. The modern usage surrounds the warrior, the Soldier who excels in the warrior craft. Could Rick have been considered a gunfighter? Possibly. Which definition would survive the ZPAW? I lean towards the classical definition. The Old West type of gunfighter.

Cab, you probably saw them too, but we had a few guys who were downright scary with their accuracy, even under fire. Those types are the ones I consider a Gunfighter.

Me? I like the idea of being a Ranger, like a real ranger not a soldier who spent lots of time at Benning's school for boys. Or at least, the more classic definition of the word.
