    Very cool video. Loved the guy who cleaned the gun for you. Also no eye or ear protection (though the rookie and instructor did put cotton in their ears).

    When I was in the police academy in the mid 70's we were trained with revolvers. All shooting was done double action, no single action allowed. We did also trained with shotguns ((Hi-Standard pumps) and Tommy guns (very fun)

    We were issued S&W Model 10 HB. Our firearms instructor was old school (1950s old school but not 1930s old school). He put on a exhibition for us the first day. No, we didn't hold stuff in our ears or mouths but he did shoot the edges of playing cards, strike anywhere matches, two targets at once, that kind of thing.

    I love old films like that.

    Check out this trick shot at 1:24. The shot just BARELY misses his ear lobe.

    I like the range fee sign at 9:37 - 25 cents.

    I did that trick when I was Wing Firearms Training Officer in the Air Force, except I used 25 yd bullseye targets at 10 yds.

    The trick is to line up the sights on one gun and try to hold it still while you line up the other gun. When you have the 2nd gun set, look back to the 1st gun. It will have wandered a little. Get it lined up and go back to #2. Keep doing that until you look from one gun to the other and find it's still on target. Then you fire both guns. You can get some pretty good scores that way.

    Shooting .38 wadcutters makes it easier to fire both revolvers at the same time. And you have to fire them at exactly the same time. No flinching allowed!

    I wish I could find out more about the last scene with the cops walking towards the targets with 1911's. LA must have been a beautiful place back then, unlike nowadays. Had to watch it over to see if they were using Smiths or Colts, yep, Colts.

    GASP! Those guys reclaiming the bullets weren't wearing respirators or hazmat suits!

    I've never seen a double gang bullet mold like the one they were using.
