The Gunslingers played in 2004 as a charter member of the Intense Football League when they were known as the Lubbock Lone Stars, receiving some criticism locally as it was felt that the phrase Lone Star should not be pluralized. Besides that, they ended their inaugural year at 9-7 and won over the Odessa Roughnecks in the Semifinals, yet lost to the Amarillo Dusters in Intense Bowl I.

Following their sole year in the IFL, the team joined the NIFL for the 2005 season, where they finished with a lackluster 4-10 record, but still finished second in the Pacific North Division.

New ownership was unable to begin play in 2006. Most of the team's regional travel partners bolted for the reorganized Intense Football League, while the Gunslingers had chosen to remain in the NIFL and wait another season to restart the team.


Later in 2006, in a move that essentially spelled the end for the Gunslingers, the rights to play indoor football in the Coliseum were sold to Texas af2 Holdings, LLC, who also manages the Laredo Lobos, Texas Copperheads, and the Corpus Christi Sharks. An af2 expansion team, the Lubbock Renegades, began play in 2007.
