there is the issue I am almost face blind and I can't remember names very well.
I can remember characters better

but women shoot they change their hair and I can't remember if I know her or not any more.

my wife I can find in a crowd although she is likely to find me first I usually stick out , maybe less at a trappers convention.

but I can spot a rifle or shotgun model form 2 rows over at a gun show and know by the lines I need to get over there and check the price.

not very good for the story line the Civil war just ended , guys still running around in confederate caps cause they haven't worn out yet chasing a criminal from the war but you have a rifle in your hand that won't be made for 26-27 years after the war ends.

of course early in the movie they are carrying 1873 Springfield trap doors during the civil war even the south.

Well,,I liked the movie.HOWEVER,,the main girl character couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag.Lucky for her shes good looking.You noticed the rifles,,did you notice John Waynes belt buckle?It had the emblem of the Red River D brand on it.Red River was a movie he made in 1948.Red River D was the brand he put on his cattle in that movie.Rio Lobo wasn't made till 1970.That brand must have had a special meaning to him.

unlike that other guy who tried to make movies and shot people instead.

John had his own colt SAA , his own Winchester 92 with the big loop and short barrel and his own holster it was his and he took it from movie to movie

there was an article about this in American Rifleman years ago. they were all working guns.

The engraved pair he used in The Shooting weren't even colts. They were Hawes Great Western clones, german guns.

Not really a problem there were actually a lot of colt clones even back in the late 1800s and just like today some were good and some bad


By the way he antique grips were antiqued by John himself by using strong tea to color them

don't think 100 yards is out of pistol range
can most people do it fast , maybe not but you sure don't want to be a target at 100 yards


Always been one of my observations about westerns....clearest among them is how their hats change over time.

What cowboys wore during the actual period is known. Similar to military uniforms. But in westerns, what cowboys wear changes to meet the fashion of the day. Hats went from big stovepipes (and high water jeans with a rolled up cuff) in the 30's to flat pancakes in the 50's and 60's, to wide floppy brims in the 80's that looked like something Charlie Daniels would wear.

As fort hats......Clint Eastwood always wore a distinctly different hat in all his westerns. One not likely seen anywhere else.
