Thats probley a lot harder than it looks, I`d more than likely end up with the rifle stuck in a tree when it went flying thru the air right after I shot my toes off

I taught Chuck everything he knows.....:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: In my dreams!!!!

Watching the Rifleman every chance I got probably had some bearing on my love for lever guns and the old west.

If he had the trigger fixed to fire automatically, how could he spin cock it without it firing? Now THAT"S trigger control...or bad writers.

makes no sense

Why cock an empty gun when it will have to be recocked...my point...bad writers. Hollywood hoohaw. But it looked cool. My luck the loop would snap off and get my rifle full of mud.

I gained a renewed respect for very skilled handling of the old guns when I started cowboy action. Of course no one does spin cocking, that I'm sure is illegal, but there are boys and girls who can make cowboy guns go very fast and accurate.

We were always told as kids that the Hollyweird stuff we saw on TV was BS, but I know some of it is not. I've seen live people doing it from 2 feet away.;) Our club President and his wife, looks like they are the club actually, are two very small oriental folks. They don't use that wimpy light weight cowboy ammo. They shoot max energy 357 and 44 loads. Their guns go BOOM every time, and they are every bit as good as any of the guys shooting wimp rounds. They often win over all.

One of my Sandy Hook arguments comes from my cowboy shoots. A skilled shooter can put 28 rounds on target in about 25 seconds with guns that are 130 years old. 8 of those rounds are from a double barrel shotgun!

It seems to me that it would put an awful lot of stress on the cocking lever. Conners probably broke more than a few of them.

Side ways shootin

Is this where badguys and cool wannabe gunslingers learned to flip their gun on it's side and look real bad for the camera? About halfway through tthis (stutter) clip it looked like Chuck was shootin with his rifle on it's side as he plunged through the doorway, into the dust of the street and into the fray shootin as he went and killin the bad guy many yards away.:rolleyes:

I love old westerns.

One of my all time favorite scenes is when Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) charged across the field spin cocking his lever...I sure miss that one-eyed fat man

Toy guns and real ones

Friend of mine can do it. He can spin his SA's too. Not me! Not even gonna attempt it. I know what the results will be.
I can remember when I was a kid I had a "Fanner 50" sixgun that shot plastic bullets. I could shoot it, spin it and return it to the holster pretty quick. I tried spinning my NM Blackhawk, empty of course, and it is way too heavy and valuable a piece for me to mess with it that way. I don't know how "they" do it, but spinning a revolver, loaded or empty takes some strength. I ain't a sissy :D but I am too weak wristed to spin anything but a yarn. (Dang, I think I keep digging me in deeper so I'll shut up now:eek:.)
