I'm someone who really enjoys watching TV Westerns from the 1950s and early-1960s.

During that period of time there were certainly plenty of cowboy shows to choose from (some good, some bad). I believe that the total count comes to close to 40 in all.

One of my all-time favourite shows from those glory days of TV Westerns was The Rifleman, which was filmed in b&w and ran for 5 solid seasons (1958-1963).

Sure this weekly, half-hour program had its faults - But, all the same - I thought that a good many of the episodes were well-scripted and entertaining for the most part.

Set in the 1880s - The Rifleman's stories were always kept simple and straight to the point. And I often found that there was a really good rapport going on between the actors in these episodes.

On top of these pluses, I definitely thought that actor Chuck Connors, as rancher, Lucas McCain, made for an absolutely ideal cowboy-dude. Big, masculine and burly, with a likable, no-nonsense attitude towards his role - Connors' presence literally epitomized the very essence of The Rifleman to a perfect "T".

P.S. - McCain's beloved rifle was a custom-designed Winchester. It was always present as a clear symbol, representing the strength, skill and overall manliness of this ace-cowboy of the Old West.
