If one assumes that they are going to miss each other most of the time and that when they shoot themselves it's a certain death then,
Going 1st with a single shot and then doing the opposite of what your opponent does can leave the opponent with the last shot.

Shoot 1st.


You Shoot once.
Then shot opposite of what the other cowboy shoot i.e if other cowboy shots 2 times, you shot once and vice versa.
After 15 shots, bullet remaining will be 23 - 1 - 7(2+1) = 1
The other cowboy need to fire the last bullet
