Was this intended as a sort of unofficial sequel to Young Guns I and II?


I haven't seen this movie in years (Like many of you, yes, I also thought it was very far from the best western with six-shooters that don't need any reloading) and I do remember Emilio Estevez spouting out a few lines about regulators, so I was wondering if, since Young Guns II seems to believe that Bushy Bill and Billy the Kid were one and the same (not debating this, since while the rebel in me wants to believe he got away, the realist in me doesn't), that the cowboy that Emilio Estevez played was meant to be Billy a few years or so later.

Interesting point, never thought of it, but there is such possibility.
But you have to admit that Billy the Kid from the movies and this cowboy here are as different as it`s possible at all. Not only as an appearance, but as a manners, temperament and way of expressing. Emilio must be a great actor to portray such different roles.

The stupidest western I have ever watched. The hero fires between 150
and 250 bullets from two six-bullet guns without ever reloading them,
and he does that several times. He kills approximately 300 persons who
are armed and shoot at him, and he is never even scratched. Silly.
