Are these Western heroes lawmen or not?

Do you know who carried a badge?

While many TV heroes from the Old West seek justice in their own way, only some are officers of the law. Do you know which characters are actual lawmen?

For the purposes of this quiz, we're defining "lawman" as any government or law enforcement official who keeps the peace and protects citizens. That means not only sheriffs and marshals, but also rangers and special agents.

See if you can tell the rangers from the ranchers in this quiz!

''You got 14 out of 14'' ----------Did you stand tall on this quiz or did you come up a little short? I stood tall, because I got them all right.

I thought a bounty hunter counted as a lawman at least in Wanted Dead or Alive. I mean if Dog the bounty hunter can arrest people doesn't that make him a lawman?

James Hardy is NOT a Lawman! He works for a PRIVATE company!

13/14 ....... missed the Festus Haggen question. I guess I figured he was just another "side-kick" like Chester was. Did odd jobs around Dodge, never was a full deputy. Guess I was wrong.

I thought so too, but my buddy seems to think Festus became a Deputy in the color versions of Gunsmoke. I wouldn't know, I don't like to watch the color version seasons
