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!
