The Young Gun is the Western equivalent of the KidSamurai: a younger, less-awesome version of TheGunslinger, looking to make a name for himself. Expect him to be [[HotBlooded hot-headed]] and [[LeastIsFirst impetuous]]. He will probably attach himself to an older, more experienced character, looking up to him as a mentor figure, only to be told that [[AdventureRebuff this is no kind of life for anyone and that he should get out while he still can]].

* Jake in ''Film/{{Silverado}}''.

to:

* Jake in ''Film/{{Silverado}}''.''Film/{{Silverado}}'' is younger and brasher than the more seasoned gunfighters in the cast, but also the flashiest shooter.



** However, it is arguable that [[spoiler: Jake becomes this with training (In book 6 he out-draws a cop), and Roland laments that Eddie and Susan are too old for them to ever become as good as the real [[TheGunslinger Gunslingers]] of old.]]
** Also, Roland and his ''ka-tet'' in the flashback parts of ''Wizard and Glass'' approach this trope, although due to their exceptional training they are more self-controlled and self-reliant than the norm.



* Unfortunately TruthInTelevision sometimes.
** UsefulNotes/BillyTheKid: The infamous outlaw may have been the first infamous example of this trope. From age 17 on he committed several murders and was shot dead himself at age 21.
** Lyle and Erik Menendez, two 21 and 18 year old brothers from a rich family, who murdered their own parents in 1989. They are still in prison as of this day.
** Every year there's a high school massacre somewhere on Earth. Usually in the USA, but there have been reports in other countries too.
