THE TOP GUNSLINGERS FROM FRONTIERADO SAGAS

 The Frontierado holiday is coming up on Friday, August 3rd! What would that holiday be without those Wild West figures who blazed their way into the Frontierado Pantheon of Gunslingers?

Here are the names, and for added fun I didn’t add links this time – all of you can have fun doing a google search under your Frontierado names, since you’re all the number one result under each of them! (Sorry, Lady London, but you’ll have to search under “Lady London Didi” because of all the London entries)
