"Straight Shooter" is a 1975 rock album released by rock band Bad Company. It was highly anticipated after their self-titled debut released the year before.

While their debut was recorded at a mansion known as Headley Grange with Ronnie Lane's Mobile Studio in November 1973, "Straight Shooter" was recorded at Gloucestershire Castle (a castle turned hotel) again with The Ronnie Lane Mobile Truck in September 1974.

The album peaked at #3 on the Billboard's Pop Albums chart (North America).

The singles "Good Lovin' Gone Bad" and "Feel Like Makin' Love" peaked at #30 and #10 respectively.

Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke revealed on "In the Studio with Redbeard" (which devoted an episode to "Straight Shooter") that the track "Shooting Star" (which told the story of a rock star who died early) was lyrically inspired by the drug and alcohol related deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison.

The album was remastered and re-released in 1994.
