    In a real gun fight with real guns (not aluminum cylinder guns), with real ammo (not wax bullets with no powder). I believe you are wrong.

    Hey HK,

    No flaming. LOL

    Try this. Load wax bullets in your 4" .38. Strap on a LEO holster of the time period.

    Hold strong hand out, with palm down. Place aspirin on back of strong hand.

    Draw and engage aspirin .......... prior to aspirin getting to belt level!

    That is quick!

    Mr. Jordan did shooting/quick draw demonstrations with his M 19.

    Yes, there are many good "quick draw" artists. SA/DA.....

    Think Mr. Jordan was "top of the heap", and a First Class Gentleman.

    I am currently reading Skeeter Skelton's Good Friends, Good Guns and Good Whiskey. It is more or a collection of his columns written for magazines. But these are fantastic, if you are an outdoors man, like to shoot or grew up a boy in the fields, farms or woodlands. Very well done, hard to find though. Was looking for a review of Elmer Keith's "Hell, I was there"...anyone read it? Thoughts?
    Ya made me go looking for it! (Skeeter Skelton's Good Friends, Good Guns and Good Whiskey) And you are 100% correct, it's hard to find, and like the last good book I bought (Brophy's), not cheap. But I purchased a copy through fleabay anyhoo. I love a good read, and I need something fresh. Been re-reading my Louis L'Amour books over and over for years (along with many other westerns). But good books don't go bad.

    I grew up reading O'Connor, Keith, Whelen, and Skeeter Skelton. All great authors, the likes of which we may never see again. I learned an awful lot about firearms from things these gentlemen wrote.

    Unfortunately guns don't " go off" the trigger has to be pulled.
