Check that addendum in the Garrett book I previously mentioned and note Pat's remarks about accusations he did'nt fight the Kid on the square.

Given Bonney's proclivities of killing without warning,preferably from behind an adobe wall,who can blame him.

Poe said the Kid drew his pistol before going in to the room.

How come none of you guys believe the evidence of the men who were there?

And to change that ossifying subject...who all was in the McSween house July 19,1878, and who ran first?

It,s worth noting that everyone in the Lincoln country war was killing from ambush that ,s what happens in gang fights and Garrett killed everyone he faced from ambush not just the Kid.

I'm not a conspiracy-theorist, so I believe in Garretts and Poe's version till there should be more evidence. Both accounts match pretty well and if you consider the span of time between the two accounts and the two independent sources (Garrett, Poe) there is no reason to believe in movie-like-weird scenarios.

But of course one can discuss the little details: Did Billy have a gun or not? Did Garrett hear Billy talking to Poe before Billy entered the room and did P. Maxwell told him "it's him" before Billy entered the room, so that when Billy actually entered the room Garrett had already a clue and shot him kind of in coldblood?

But at the end Garretts version makes perfect common sense. Garrett gets a hint that Billy in in the Ft. Sumner area. So he sneaks in with just 3 men. He knows Billy could come to the Maxwell house, but on the other side he knows that Billy knows that everybody would expect him there so chances are very thin for a smart Kid to come there. But - so what - he tries to get some new info from the Maxwell house. Coincidently the meet in the dark bedroom. Billy talks to Maxwell and Garrett gets a clue from the voice that it could be Billy plus Maxwell is telling "it's him"...Garrett is a coward-type of human so he takes chances first, even if he would kill the wrong man just for the sake of his own advantage whereas Billy is more confused and reluctant to pull the trigger (if he had a gun) in the house of his friend against an unknown guy. The end.

Everyone entitled to there opinion but i don,t believe Garretts version he stated that the kid came and sat next to him on the bed and noticed Grrett when he moved this is so hard to believe the kid would have to be blind to be sitting right next to someone and not see them.

And why on earth would Maxwell have to tell Garrett it was the kid when Garrett had dealt with the kid for months and knew his voice well.

The kid was killed that night no doubt but i don,t believe the story.
