There are fonts you use every day, then there are those priceless ones you only bust out for a special occasion. Outlaw is one of those fonts you may only use once, but you’ll be happy you have it when you do. Outlaw features a fantastic grunge appearance on a western-style font. The author of the font, Billy Argel, is particularly good at creating grunge fonts – so be sure to check out his other fonts available on DaFont.
