Don’t be scared by the title - these folks are only interested in the safe reenactment of gunfights, not the actual life-and-death competitions which were so rampant in the days of the real Wild West. Preservation is important to these folks and they take pride in their wardrobe and firearms.
Offering a visually appealing step into the past, the New Mexico Gunfighters put on quite a performance in public plazas in Old Town Albuquerque. This ensemble of gun-slinging actors is part of an award-winning theatrical group who has been performing free public comedic Old West skits in Albuquerque for over 42 years.
The themes range from thrilling bank robberies to dramatic shoot outs, comedic moments and other scenes typical of the Wild West days of lore.
The Gunfighter troop performs on the 2nd & 4th Sunday afternoons between March and October in Old Town Albuquerque. Visitors won't be able to miss the family-friendly performances by the pops of gunfire that commence the show.
