  Guys shooting 45-70-405s were not making much of an impression on the critters.  They have to go down.

Oh well....guess I'll have a lot of double tapping for my load!

I shot 45/70 with 405s and 12.7 trail boss last year and they fell for me.  There may have been one or two that didn’t fall.  Shoot high.

You are saying "shoot high" like I'm able to control my shot placement.... :o

I didn't realize the Civil War was fought with M-1879 Trapdoors.  ::) ;)

For all its inaccuracies, that movie has some great lines.   

Is the flap on your holster snapped or unsnapped, my Confederate friend?

Snapped, my Yankee friend.

Then, I guess I'm his pigeon.

It was a reasonable substitution for the Springfield 1865s they had obviously stolen, as the Springfield Armory is right along the way to Mexico.   :D

Those darned things that stick up from the barrel get in my way, and I can't see the target.

Lots easier to shoot blanks from for sure!  (I doubt one in a hundred movie-goers noticed anyway.)

I am trying to think of the JohnWayne movie that takes place in the late 1840s  where the use 1873 colts and 1892 Winchesters.  Just recalled “Comancheros”.  Mind is slow.  Quote For MO. “I am not your friend””.
