Pioneer Kansas and Dodge City lawman "Ham Bell says the idea that he never drew a gun on a man when he was sheriff here in the early days is all wrong. He never shot a man, he says, and that was mainly because he was always careful to draw his gun in plenty of time before the other man drew his. "If I'd never drawn a gun," he says, "I wouldn't have lived a week." Dodge City Daily Globe, January 14, 1931
