My head hit the floor both times McGinley chucked me off. The third time, my wrist hurt bad, but I aint giving up now. Diving back onto him I saw Clint land punches into his face. I wrapped my arm around McGinley's throat and, still holding tight around his neck, threw myself sideways. When I hit the floor, McGinley's face appeared close beside me, and my elbow hurt like hell when I smashed it onto his head.
And finally he stopped struggling and I groaned in sheer relief.
Then I heard the clicking of a gun's hammer being drawn back.

    Great action-packed stuff here... but uh-oh! more trouble’s a-comin’ on fast [Bites fingernails to the quick!]

    Thanks Neville, yes, you're right. I agree with you, too, Steve. If I was sheriff I'd have shot the lot of them by now ;)
