    Back then it was very easy to rob banks & trains. But back those days if you rob a train you better hope the army isnt guarding the money or the gold or youre a dead duck! But Banks were so easy to rob if you plain them.Sheriff Deputies dont have radios or fast squad cars. Banks didnt have cameras or alarms. I can very easy rob this bank

    yeah robbing banks nowadays is the pits. Exploding dye bags, silent alarms, DNA testing. I think it's still pretty easy to steal horses, though. :)
