Default Fastest Draw?

Which of these three have the fastest draw? Lightning McCoy (wearing the black hat), James West (in blue) or I? Footage from the TV show "The Wild, Wild West."

I slowed down the action (19 seconds in) to a frame-by-frame look. It appears West and you may have drawn at the same time, but West's gun was pointed more on the target and yours pointed slightly towards the floor. Couldn't see Lightning McCoy's draw, but West's gun was fired before McCoy by the smoke from the guns.

With that being said pretty fast draw Fleet!

I did that, too. Watched it frame-by-frame. I agree; very close between myself and West. I have done that with other "gunfights" on TV and had similar results.

Thanks. Did you or any western fan notice that the staircase in that picture is the same one used in the Barkley house on "Big Valley"? I noticed it in a few of the WWW episodes.
