About This Quiz

The Wild West was full of colorful characters and a lot of risky business. It seems clear that you're the kind of person who would have been drawn to keeping the peace and providing law and order out on the frontier, but what kind of a sheriff would you have been?

If you're the kind of person who can separate loyalty to friends from doing your job, then Sheriff Roy Coffee from "Bonanza" seems like he could be a good fit. If you've also been around the block a few times and you'd instead take your time in getting the right information over rushing to an incorrect conclusion, then it seems clear that our initial guess is panning out even more.

Maybe you're the kind of person who is just trying to get out of the crazy business of bringing criminals to justice. If you enjoy the company of those that others find unsavory and you enjoy a bit of gambling now and then, then Wyatt Earp is sounding like a real solid choice for you. If you tell us that you are a sharpshooter, we'll be convinced that we've found your man.

Saddle up partner. We're riding from Virginia City, Nevada to Tombstone, Arizona to find the right fit for you.
