Next you're going to tell us that pistols weren't accurate enough back then to be able to shoot individual fingers off at 25 yards?As cute as the movie is, the shooting scenes are total bonafide, Moroccan leather bound BS.

As a note, after 1 to 2 shots with old time blackpowder rounds you wouldn't have been able to see beyond a few feet in a dank fetid cantina. As well, they didn't "fan" revolvers then.
