According to sources, many of Kid Colt's early adventures are merely dime store novels that were published about his exploits. Many of these tales have not been retold in their proper context. Whenever possible both accounts are identified.
Origins of Kid Colt
There are various accounts of the event that led to Blaine Colt becoming an outlaw. In the first account incorrectly states that Blaine lived in the town of Salvation with his father. Blaine who refused to use guns earned the ire of the local sheriff and his deputy Lash Larribee who whipped him raw. His father was disgusted at Blaine's unwillingness to fight and went to confront Larribee himself. Blaine's father was killed, and the sheriff and Lash pinned the murder on Blaine, who learned from his friend Gabby the truth. Already a crack shot with Colt pistols, Blaine took his fathers guns and gunned down the sheriff and whipped Lash to death. In a second account of his origins, it is stated that Kid Colt learned how to shoot from his brother Slim who was later gunned down by outlaws out to prove they were a faster draw than him. Slim's death being the catalyst for Blaine's reluctance to initially carry a gun. In this version of accounts, it was the sheriff who killed his father, Gabby and even Lash Larribee. In this account the sheriff didn't die by Kid Colt's guns, but by being knocked off a cliff in a fist fight with Colt.
Whatever true facts are, what remains is that in all accounts, Blaine rode out of town on his horse Steel a wanted outlaw, and his reputation earned him the nickname Kid Colt.
Early Career: Undated
Many of Kid Colt's early adventures are undated and an exact continuity of events may be lost to myth and legend or the product of the dime store novelists who wrote tales of his adventures. Below are the adventures that are undated organized by the order in which they were told.
Early in his career as an outlaw, Kid Colt rode into the town of Mojave City where he gunned down a drunken outlaw. The locals then appointed him as the new sheriff, and the Kid assumed the alias of "Kid Arbuckle". He was told by the local banker Mr. Johnstone that the town was divided in half between the law abiding citizens and lawless outlaws. The Kid was soon pinned for murder, and Johnstone -- really in charge of the outlaws -- learned Kid Colt's true identity and attempted to pressure the Kid to turn a blind eye. Kid Colt instead gunned down Johnstone and his men and left the town to appoint a new sheriff. While out on the range, Kid Colt was approached by another outlaw named Pecos Pete, who offered to ride with Kid Colt. Colt refused and the pair were soon chased away by a posse out looking for them. The Kid was wounded and his horse Steel carried him to the Quaker town of God's Acre where he was nursed back to health and welcomed in with open arms, the locals unconcerned with his past telling him that he could forge a new one there. However, Pecos Pete followed his back trail and gunned down the man who helped Kid Colt. The Kid reclaimed his guns and gunned down Pecos Pete and then left town. On the run again, Kid Colt came to the aid of Olin Baxter whose daughter Betty had been kidnapped by the Six-Gun Syndicate's leader Cash Collins. Kid Colt was able to use his outlaw status to join the Six-Gun's and free Betty, and wipe out the gang after shooting Cash Collins between the eyes. Olin and Betty's offer to live with them was later refused by Blaine who returned to the range.

Kid made sure that cooler heads prevailed and Frank revealed that Quinn was accidentally shot dead by Clyde's son Stan. Seeing that Stan had grown up to be a good boy, Clyde decided to let his grudge slide, believing his son growing up straight and narrow was worth ten years in prison. In El Stenago, Texas, Kid Colt was hired by the local military attachment (under the alias "The Kid") to investigate the accusations that Kid Colt himself had robbed military uniforms and guns to rob a gold shipment.
