The gunfight at the O.K. Corral was in 1881. That wasn't even 150 years ago. The period we think of as the Old/Wild West ended in the 1910s.

Cowboys are still very much a thing. I encourage you to look up your nearest rodeo.

The cliche wild west time period was closer to 150 years ago.

And the anachronistic gunslinging was never really a thing outside of a few noteworthy outlaws. It was probably more like Little House on the Prairie.

The Wikipedia page on gunslingers claims that the majority of them worked on reputation and ideally avoided fights completely.

Next step...Cowboys in space. 25 or so years is my bet.
