Shoot It Out With The Sheriff is a fictional arcade game.


The game is consisting of a moving mannequin sheriff and a fake gun (which the player must draw before the sheriff does).

In The FilmEdit

Swan, at the Union Square station, is being tailed by The Punks, and, acting nonchalant, stops in front of a nearby arcade, standing right next to a "Shoot It Out With The Sheriff" arcade game

In The NovelEdit

Hinton plays this game a few times and wins twice, indicating his hatred and rejection of authority in general.


  • The scene in the movie featuring the arcade game was possibly Walter Hill's tip-of-the-hat to the novel.
