Default The aircraft (both of them) ...

was called "Songbird".

Would I carry Paladin's SAA with a one ounce trigger? Without a doubt. It isn't cocked until ready to shoot in any event. And I have some question in my mind if that's the actual trigger weight.

I suspect that the "1 ounce trigger pull" was a Hollywood writer's device rather than anything a gunman would employ. But, it is no less plausible than the reports of triggers wired back to allow fanning of the hammer for rapid-fire shooting.

Truly, do you swear Shi? He and Cameron Mitchell were the sh*t. I'd ask you to get me his autograph, but I'm too cool.

Don't forget Clint in Rawhide. Eastwood never smoked in any of the shows, but is seen in some of the operners rolling a smoke. Great stuff.
