1 Myth: In "Young Guns 2" it was speculated that Billy was killed by a man who used to be his close friend. Who was that man?
Answer: Pat Garrett

Fact: There is no doubt that Billy and Pat knew each other. They may have even ridden together for some period of time. However, no historian has ever found a shred of evidence that the two were as close as the movie suggested.

Movie: In "Young Guns 2", Billy and Pat were as close as two friends could be. They rode together, they killed together, they joked around with each other, etc. When Pat was contracted to hunt down Billy, their friendship quickly turned into a personal feud.

6 Who is the narrator?
Answer: Brushy Bill Roberts

I shouldn't accept Billy the Kid because who knows if they're the same person but I figured I'd get a lot of complaining messages. Besides, we all hope they're the same person, right? (And Emilio played both characters.)
7 Myth: "Young Guns" introduced us to an older man who would hire Billy and others to work on his ranch. This man was shown to be a father figure to all those men. Who was that man?
Answer: John Tunstall

Fact: Tunstall did hire Billy and the others to work for him. This is true. But, the men were merely hired guns to protect him and work on his ranch. Besides, Tunstall was only 24 when he died. Not exactly father figure material.

Movie: One scene in "Young Guns" showed John and the men having dinner together. John taught them manners and respect for each other. Tunstall was also shown teaching some of the men how to read.

12 Who is Billy hanging out with at the beginning of the movie?

'I had taken up with Patrick Lloyd (or Floyd?) Garrett and Arkansas Dave Rudabaugh...'
13 Myth: "Young Guns 2" had an all-star cast. Which popular actor played "Arkansas" Dave Rudabaugh?
Answer: Christian Slater

Fact: "Arkansas" Dave Rudabaugh? Nope. Sorry. There was no such person known by that name. If he did have a nickname, it was "Dirty" Dave Rudabaugh, but there is no proof he was called that either. Let's just call him Dave, shall we?

Movie: One of the recurring themes in "Young Guns 2" was how much of a narcissist Dave Rudabaugh was. Everywhere he went and seemingly everybody he came across, he would ask if they had heard of him. No, "Arkansas" Dave Rudabaugh, nobody had ever heard of you because you never existed.

17 Pat tells Billy he won't be going with them. He's going to open up an eatin' house. What does he say he'll name it?

Billy later writes this on the wall in blood. Out of desperation he lets a young boy join his gang. Balthazar Getty plays Tom, the young wanna-be outlaw who idolizes Billy.
18 It was 1878 in the first movie, what year is it in this movie?

19 Myth: In "Young Guns 2", there was a scene that involved a young boy who was stealing food. This boy had been yearning to meet the infamous Billy Bonney. Well, he got his wish, because this is where he first meets Billy. What was this boy's name?
Answer: Tom O'Folliard

Fact: This one was a huge historical error, and I have no idea how this got included in the movie. "Young Guns 2" took place after the Lincoln County War. But, Billy met Tom during the war, and became the best of friends. Tom was also portrayed as a kid from Pennsylvania. Oops. The real Tom was from Texas.

Movie: "Young Guns 2" claims that Tom's only mission in life was to ride with "The Kid". Poor young Tommy got his wish, and was shot and killed as a result.

25 Myth: At the end of "Young Guns", it was shown that Billy killed a man after he and his friends escaped the fight at Alex McSween's house, and that would spark the end of the Lincoln County War. What was the name of this man?
Answer: Lawrence Murphy

Fact: Where to start? How about the fact that Murphy was nowhere near the events at McSween's house? Murphy was far away suffering from an illness. That illness was cancer, and that is what really killed him, not a bullet from Billy's revolver.

Movie: In "Young Guns", Billy believed that if Murphy was dead, the war would end. After he escaped the siege at McSween's house, Billy rode back and put a bullet right through the old man's forehead.
