I'm just astonished at how quickly he managed to reload that revolver.
what's stopping someone from doing this normally? recoil?
Revolvers aren't automatic guns.
You have to keep pulling the trigger
The trigger pull on a revolver is heavier than that on a semi-automatic pistol, as such think of the reactions needed to pull the trigger 8 times in just under a second keeping every shot on target.
As for the reloading, most people would be hard pressed to do that in under 10 seconds, he did it in less than 3.
Pre-Dunblane I used to love target shooting. My science teacher was the coach of our school shooting team, I remember him passing his (unloaded) Colt 45 around the class. It seems unbelievable with hindsight.
i just spotted the reload bit
yeah i suppose it is a bit impossibly good
I'm having visions of his other hand flinging back over the hammer like a karate chop...
I figure he's most likely a modern day Jesse James!
and would like to go to the states and spend weeks shooting different kinds of guns at moving targets, preferably those targets would be the bush administartion (though cheney would probably get me first) and fundamentalist christians.
