Default Hollywood Cowboy movies.

Although I did like open range, I was noticing the fanning of the six shot revolver and how I counted five shots to kill that guy after he had already used two. Ain't gonna happen like that nor a round through the leg or the gut and still walking around. Or four rounds from a 45 and still laying on the floor talking about it.


Or the rifles getting hit and still an active shooter I don't care how tuff you are.i Hollywood get your timing and damage correct if you ever want to be believable.

i don't know for sure.
i'd think their ammo would have been weaker
than some good modern .357 mag jhp.
about all they had was b.p. round nose lead.
i've read historical accounts of folks pretty
solid shot lasting hours and sometimes days
in those times. i think treatment then was
about as bad as getting popped. maybe a
dirty bandanna dipped in a slimy old wooden
horse trough, or bystanders probing a wound with
their unwashed hands.
i'd imagine a good bit of gunfight sounds are
dubbed in, and i wouldn't think the majority
of the film crew were that familiar with the
ins and outs of proper gun use and sounds.
look at how many that are rifle and shotgun
hit and go flying back several feet or bust
through a wall or door when hit. buildings
(besides soddies or dugouts) were built with
real wood, not the crap they sell for wood
at home depot. you couldn't have flew though
a fresh built one back then unless a tornado
had thrown you, and just only maybe then.
that's why so many lasted a century with
little or no paint.

isn't just the old movies. Just watched a movie where a swat team cleared a house. Two were armed with ar15s that were flat tops with no optic or ever a front sight on them. Ever see a main character standing on his feet shoot a dillion aero gattling gun. Wonder where he plugged it in? because its powered be electricity.

I swear they do this 'just to tick US off'.

how about where they are fighting the
north-south war with lever winchesters?
or one of the movies with "flintlock" trapdoors?


i had thought of one earlier today where a
cowboy type had his packhorse behind him
and had on modern leather work gloves with
the red plastic bead on the adjustment string,
but i've not been able to remember what
show it was
