STAMPEDE 1956 Gabriel Co. Board Game Gets a Play

I have had this board game from 1956 for a few years in my collection and have always thought it would be a fun game about cattle rustling.  The unique aspect of this game is that the pawns are miniature cowboys on horseback that have a firing mechanism built into their base.  This mechanism fires a small wooden dowel as the ammo and during game play you actually get to shoot other cowboys if they are stealing your cattle.  I tried to video the action but the quality was goofy but we did get in a lot of shooting.  Had a great time with my family playing this old old game.
