Top Gun Recut

Had Pat Garrett not let a couple fly into his back, Billy the Kid would be turning a very impressive 150 today, making him a very old cowboy indeed. But it wasn’t to be. Billy’s dead, damn it. Dead. Nice one, Pat. Either way, we thought we’d salute the gunslinger by nipping out and buying him a gift, and after a few shots of the good stuff in the downstairs bar of a whorehouse, it boiled down to a toss up between a lovely baseball cap, or a new version of Top Gun. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Billy!
