Dang, I can't berlieve nobody thought the line from "Support Your Local Gunfighter" Belongs here:

Jug {Jack Elam}: You hit that fellow from behind?
Latigo  {James Garner}: Just as hard as I could!

Or perhaps my all-time favorite from "The Professionals":

J. W. Grant {Ralph Bellamy}: You bastard.
Rico {Lee Marvin}: Yes, Sir. In my case an accident of birth. But you, Sir, you're a self-made man.

 

Some others are close but these couple are like oatmeal - don't taste too bad and it stays with you!

 

See ya in the swamp!

I'll take a 'shot' at it.  Not a western but I think John Candy as Duley was waving around a 50 cal SS auto in Armed and damgerous.  At the time I was watching a young Meg Ryan more.

That line might have been stolen from an old western, but can't think af a pistol/rifle that would have been outlawed in the old wet  (1860-95)?

I think it is from Little Big Man...either the Dustin Hoffman or the Chief Dan George character?????

I might know better it you could give me the accent. 

I liked Dan George in the Outlaw Josie Wales, great actor.  He could deliver the same line as either fall down funny or deadly serious.

PS.  I hope this is wrong...then I can stop sending you those $5LOL

You got me on this one.  I thought all he did was TV as Lucas McCain (aka The Rifleman, with a 1892 winchester in 44-40)? with some TV guest spots on serials.

I seem to remember a bunch of lousy early low-budget movies in which he didn't star, and had limited lines.  Forbidden Planet?

I give up.  someone help!Cry
