Alan Ladd in the final showdown with Jack Palance in Shane. Classic. Absolutely Classic.

Lackluster narration and, #2 should have been number one, and cant believe the gunfight between Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson from Once apon a time in the west wasn't even included, What?

Jack Elam real badass
ARA MASRAF
Clint EastWood's ( The Good,The Bad and The Ugly ) is best among those ten westerns,but we should not forget ( High Plains Drifter ) of Clint Clint Eastwood.
Alejandro Ceppi
The final gunfight in Appaloosa (when Viggo Mortesen confronts the bad guy). Just one against one but it is a very convincing gunfight.\nAlso the final one in Quigley Down Under (Tom Selleck against Alan Rickman an others).
Andrew James
SHANE!! you forgot SHANE,the standard by which all Clint Eastwood directed gunfights was spawned from

BENichs the Pheonix
The Good, The Bad And The Ugly is 1966 not 96
Bill Gedeon
#1. Alan Ladd & Jack Palance,\
Bob Brooke
Quigley Down Under Final Scene
Bob McVey
How could you over look the showdown in Pale Rider?
Brad Clark
Once Upon a Time in the West. Gunfight between Charles Bronson and Henry Fonda. Great music and scenery. Classic.
Brent Fox
#1 Once upon a time in the West. The last gun fight scene in the movie. That scene will always be #1.
Cambro 64
I know not everyone liked the movie but I like the final shoot out in Young Guns...\
Carthaginian60
Problem with you guys is that you think the world began in 1980 or something. Having a top 10 Western gunfight list without the original True Grit or Shane is nothing short of laughable. I'm wondering how the hell High Noon ended up on it.
Charles Mitchell
Hello Mr. Castleberry, you are wrong about Silverado.  The gunfight between Paden (Kevin Kline) and Cobb (Brian Dennehy) is iconic, not to mention the look on Emmett's (Scott Glenn) face inside the cave when Mel (Danny Glover) tells him that the boy was taken.
Chris Schroyer
You missed a good one. From 1995 a relatively unknown movie, Gunfighters moon, staring Lance Henricksen has a killer final gunfight scene. Lance's character stands in for the local store keep turned town sheriff at the request of his long lost love now married to the new sheriff. The gunfighter has had to watch his back his entire life but drops everything to answer the request of the woman he still yearns for.
Clay Ronso
The Magnificent 7 final shootout?
Corey Shier
You missed the big shootout in \
DAVID DEITRICK
I agree with Lucas .Best gunfight scene hands down in the final scene in Once upon a time in the west. Fonda against Bronson Not even on your list and should be number1
David Perez
In my opionion the best gunfight ever filmed, Shane with Alan Ladd .
Daydrian Lewis (DAYD111)
Woah, woah! Where's the Magnificent Seven?
Derek o'hanlon
John Wayne movie where he say's the mortal words FILL YOUR HAND'S YOU SON OF A BITHCH or Val Kilmer as Doc Holladay saying I'm your huckleberry to Johnny Ringo
Duke Hust
No John wayne, and no Magnificent seven... failed list
Embree Walker II
Need another top ten and this time include John Wayne and the Magnificent Seven. For shoot outs, the end of the Sand Pebbles is pretty good even though it isn't a western.
Floyd Teter
Would have found a spot for the gunfight between John Wayne and Robert Duvall's gang from \
Gabriel Krebs
No John Wayne or Magnificent 7 even as honorable mentions? How do you have a western list without a mention of the Duke or one of the finest westerns ever made?
Gary Howie
Not a single John Wayne movie? Have you not seen The Cowboys, when the boys got revenge for Wayne's murder? Red River? How about Jimmy Stewart in Winchester '73? The final 10 minutes of Silverado? All are better than at least 7 of the movies listed. At least you mentioned Django although, when you say that he has been dragging the coffin with the machine gun around for the 'whole movie\
Greg
The Professionals. Burt Lancaster and Lee Marvin. Great movie
Greg Kerr
Lee Marvin and Jimmy Stewart were pretty awesome adversaries in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
Hartmut Jager
GEE, You left out \
Henchman Twenty1
Ummm, The Magnificent Seven maybe? Hello?
Jackie Lambros
Im surprised SHANE was   not mentioned the shoot out at the end was excellent
Jake Alter
I'm pretty sure that The Good, The Bad and the Ugly came out in 1966 and not 1996
James Kirk
your list aint nuthin without The Duke.
Jeb Watts
that open range gun fight will always be burned into my memory for how abruptly it began. It was amazing.
Jim Morton
THE WILD BUNCH is still number one for me.
Joe Robbins
The Shootist ends with John Waynes last gunfight and he went out with style.
Jonah Hex
What about John Wayne flip cocking his lever action rifle
KSFWG
I think the list should have been the top 25 -- just for the sheer scope of great westerns to chose from.
KayliFallstone
The final gunfight in the western Purgatory. The bar gunfight in Outlaw Justice aka The Long Kill
KlunkerRider
GB&U should be #1 by far...also missing: John Wayne final shootout in Stagecoach, My Darling Clementine's OK Corral shootout was way better (if less accurate) than Tombstone, the gangs homecoming in High Plains Drifter, The Northfield Minn raid in The Long Riders, My Name is Nobody pretty much any shootout in it.
Lex Dunn
The Magnificent Seven (the original)
Lucas Kane
The final duel in Once upon a time in the west. When Harmonica finally gets his revenge.
Luke Myers
Qugley down under?
Matt Prater
the final fight in pale rider where preacher takes on the marshall and his deputies
Michael Martin
Where the *&^% are Silverado, High Plains Drifter, Outlaw Josey Wales, and Magnificent Seven???
Michael Watson
John Wayne. The. Shootist
Milkman Productions
you should have put John Waynes stand off in the original true grit
MrShobar

NakkiPie
When harmonica kills frank. It deserves the top spot followed by the mexican standoff and then William munnys revenge
Nick Adams
ITS HIGH NOON
Paul Harrell
The final scene in John Waynes last movie, \

Ruben Rodriguez
'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly' was a true masterpiece. It should be #1. \nJohn Wayne facing off against Robert Duvall and 3 other gunmen in 'True Grit' was one of my favorites. \n'Winchester 73' ended with at terrific gun battle between two brothers.
SilverStrike
I thought the movie Shane had a really good, although relatively short, gun-fight scene.
Sodiumreactor
@4:09 is that the doctor from Cannonball run??
The Life Of Cringe
lets be honest we all wanted the good the bad and the ugly to be #1
The Pope
*Life:* it all boils down to how often you feel from moment to moment, *how often you feel good and how often you feel bad*, and it will be balanced like everything else physical. Check for yourself (always). Google truthcontest.

Voxguitarsrock
kinda surprised John Wayne's shootout in the meadow in True Grit didn't make the list
WhiteLightnin 67
True Grit? Pale Rider?? Quigly Down Under???
Win Gates
How can you leave out the final gunfight in Shane?!
XxSEETH3RxX
Outlaw Joey Wales has several but my favorite is at the outpost when the two men try and take Josey captive and ask him to hand over his pistols, but Josey flips them around and smokes their ass.\n\nMagnificent Seven gunfight was pretty damn good.. Plus the knife vs Gun scene.
Zoe TheCat
The Mexican standoff in The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly is not only the #1 shootout, it is the greatest scene of ALL TIME.
allsportsbandfan
A decent list but I wish they'd squeeze in the bank shootout in the Long Riders and the shootout in Pale Rider.
bennyhillpervert
The gunfight at the OK Corral in Tombstone should have been number one. Doc Holiday vs Johnny Ringo number two. The rest of the list is pretty decent.
bobby boucher
Unforgiven was a very shit your pants revenge fight! Those guys drinking having fun than happen to notice death just walked in!
chiffmonkey
Wrong scene from Once Upon a Time in the West. Should be the final duel and revelation of Harmonica's identity.
cloudform
The first gunfight in \
dLimboStick
You cut out the best line in Unforgiven.  \

Lee Van Cleef one of the best actors to ever live. Miss him horribly!!

iha asc
I would add the final gunfight in Shane, the final gunfight in A Few Dollars More, the duel between Bronson and Henry Fonda in Once Upon A Time In The West.
karl wills
1953 Shane,Jack Palance & Alan Ladd best gunfight scene ever
larry potter
What about the Wacko Kid, (Genev Wilder), when he shoots the guns out of the hands of boss Taggarts men in Blazing Saddles. You don't even see him draw he's so fast. Not even Clint Eastwood or John Wayne is that good.

You're a low down Yankee liar.\nProve it!

majorsynth
Shane, The Shootist, True Grit????? Sad omissions.
mallanac
No, do not agree at all. You are missing Shane and Pale Rider.

topogigio,s
one of the best scenes ever THE WILD BUNCH, loved that final battle
unrepeatable raddish
the daftest thing about this list is.......Django machine gun .....but no magnificent seven ? really? and.....not a single john wayne gunfight? the belltower gunfight with john wayne and Robert michum from el dorado is awesome
vince33x
The Wild Bunch climax tops 'em all! Greatest Western ever made!
violacrb
5:33 That is not a chain gun. That is a gas-powered, water-cooled machine gun.
william wright
This is a sad list and Mojo which often gets it right gets it very WRONG !!  The problem of course is that westerns are hardly made any more and if you watch them then you need to love movies of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s far more than more recent offerings. \
zorrgal
The final duel in Once upon a time in the west. Bronson vs Fonda, a masterpiece.
zynjan
john wayne in true grit .
