Applejack is a myth, a legendary gunfighter in the Equestrian Old West. Well, South. Since the San Palomino is due south of Ponyville, but West has certain connotations, and isn't it all west of Canterlot anyway?

The point is, she's back in Appleloosa to take out a no good black hat who's gone and tried taking over the town.

And it's High Noon...

How exactly do ponies use guns? Guess we'll find out.

I mean, south becomes west if you tilt the compass 90 degrees

“I don’t understand the technological development there.”

Neither do we, Twilight. Neither do we.

Delightful bit of silliness, but I don't see that disclaimer holding up in court when Penny didn't even bother to change any of the names. In any case, definitely a more dentist-friendly answer to the question of equine firearms than Kkat's. Thank you for a delightful little tale.

This was hilariously silly, and I mean that in the most geniune of ways. It does the genre of the Wild West well, while also taking the typical tropes of the genre, and keeping it fresh, unique and charming.

Funny, but somehow, I don't that disclaimer going to keep Fluttershy from writing to the author of that book; she might be too sad to head the tiny words. I also loved the little extra comedy in the author's notes and did they actually hang up on Discord? Bad move if they did:rainbowlaugh:

There you go! That's the right attitude!

"Since our entire civilization seems to have a very limited pool of names, all based on puns - see case: Discord v The Fourth Wall - it would be creatively limiting to authors, writers, and others if we couldn't use such ubiquitous names such as Applejack, or Pinkie Pie in our fictional stories. Do you know how many newborn fillies and colts were named Twilight Sparkle after our Glorious Leader's ascension? I rest my case."

Thank you!

Luckily, she's too bust writing fanfiction to complain all that often. :rainbowlaugh:

Save for a few evil commas appearing from the void, this was written very well.
I enjoyed it and liked how you flipped it to make it what we experience, but not.

I've gotta give props for the substitute for revolvers and their names, and overall it's a nice little wild west type story. Good job! :derpytongue2:

Commas are not evil! They're misunderstood!!

Thank you! Felt like the mouth-guns were a bit... overdone. :rainbowlaugh:

Alright, now that was pretty fun! Fast and loose with the comedy here, and I can tell a few wild west things you played around with even though I've never been much into westerns myself. Affectionate parody?

And you've somehow managed to make parking and unparking a car relevant to a cowboy duel. On that note, I had to look up what a K-turn is.

Thanks for this, and keep up the good work!

Quite fun! Quite ridiculous, and quite fun. Good work!

I am continually surprised by how many people don't know what that is. Maybe I'm the problem?

Glad you liked it! :pinkiehappy:

I love it. I wonder how these ponies would react to Pinkie brandishing her party cannon in other's faces.

Panic at how fast she can draw.

“Dash? They’re ponies.” She held up one hand in a little ‘hoof’ shape, for emphasis. “How would we pull the trigger on a gun like that?”

“But… you have cannons?” Twilight asked, putting down her second burger at the far end of the friends’ table. “I don’t understand the technological development there.”

Fluttershy, sitting beside her, sighed wearily.

“Why do ponies need guns?”

These are very good questions.

Cannons were the first real "guns", and a staple of party-ponies to this day.

I mean, Cheese Sandwich has a bloody TANK mounted cannon.

Guns, guns and guns.

BLAST EM ALL!

All such tech is closely maintained by the huge and corrupt Party Industrial Complex. The Guard get aluminum for their armor, while Cheese Sandwich has a party tank. :rainbowlaugh:

After all, "fun" and "gun" are next door neighbors by one letter!

This was a lot of fun and really well written. The only thing I would have preferred would have been a final wrap up with the girls with one last comment after the end of the novel, but otherwise, it was great.
