      I hate to be picky, but some of these don't appear to me to be classic "Mexican Stand-Offs." Some of them are just ordinary gunfights or confrontations. A MS has to have an element of uncertainty about just how the parties can possibly resolve the situation with some chance of at least one of them living through it. A simple showdown in the streets is not a MS, especially if one of the parties has an obvious advantage over the other(s). Further, I'm not quite sure why these are "Mental Mexican Stand-Offs." Are there MSs that are NOT mental in some way? That's the whole point...how does each party decide what to do?
