My first two books are set in a world that's western...flavored, I guess would be the right word? I originally decided on the setting because I wanted a world where someone could legitimately be gunned down in the street without having to deal with law enforcement coming down on them in force. But, I'm struggling with the conceptual elements of such a world. I don't know an awful lot about the actual, factual, literal Wild West, but there are so many things from the setting (mostly gleaned from media) that I want to use. So, should I actually bite the bullet and research the minutiae (like, the canning industry and whatnot) or just gloss over those things? They aren't really relevant to the plot, if that helps.
