As much as I dislike Don Johnson, his revolver work in Dead Bang was pretty darn realistic. He actually reloaded after six shots and used speed loaders!

Those dudes knew how to get more "bang" out of their buck from their revolvers ammunition while increasing ammo performance and accuracy. We today in the modern age would do well to improve our performance to the standards of our cowboy ancestors.

Back in the day, to increase ballistic performance and accuracy traveling 40 MPH on horse back they "slung" their revolvers forward extremely fast toward their intended targets with great success!

If your not a history gun slinging exhibition buff, here's the finer points.

On horse back you gain an additional 40 MPH to the velocity of the projectile, that's why they always shot at the horses full speed and not a trot or gallop.

They also added allot of additional projectile velocity by the sling. Properly done as witnessed in many Roy Rogers / Lone Ranger black & whites... The arm (usually the right one) is lifted very high at the 12 o'clock position with revolver in hand. Then with a blur of a Bob Gibson fastball, it is flung forward to the POA, right before the POA is reached the centrifugal force generated retracts the index finger and engages the trigger press with highly accurate results.

If not for this ingenious technique, I doubt the West would have ever been won, therefore you and I probably wouldn't have been born and be here talking about how our forefathers were better shots than you and I and how we have a debt to old black & white cowboy movies.

So there you have it, history in a nut shell.
Very informative. If the native Americans picked up on that with their bows they coulda changed history with that velocity increase.

Double action- USED as double action? Well, there were the Webley revolvers carried by the two officers in Zulu- and then there was THIS guy....

Indeed C3, The Webley Fosbery made a couple major forays into movies. Sam Spade misidentified the piece he was carrying as a 8 shooter in the Maltese Falcon saying "Yeh. A Webley Fosbery .45 Automatic - eight shot. They don't make 'em any more". The truthis they never made one to begin with, the 38 was the only 8 shooter in the WF lineup, the 45 was a 6!

Zardov was a wild man in a diaper when he was seen waving his WF in the air like a nut. Who could forget, larger than life and crazier than a loon!

If not for those two movies, most would have never heard of the < 4800 produced Webley Fosbery that is my namesake on gun boards!

As much as I love the Dirty Harry series of movies,it's a bit unrealistic that anyone would carry a .44 Mag with a 6.5" barrel,so my top choice for revolvers in movies would be Paul Kersey's .32 Colt Police Positive in "Death Wish" given to him by a friend out west....that is just awesome story writing and believable.

"Young guns" or "tombstone" is the obvious choice!

Any movie w/Clint Eastwood brandishing a revolver. I love those old cowboy movies. Grew up on them actually.
