You’d have a different opinion if you had been. Real isn’t Hollywood. Real isn’t about being frugal with ammo, it’s about staying alive, when the flood of adrenaline hits, something few Monday morning couch quarter backs have an appreciation for. My favorite pistol for point shooting is my 1851 cap and ball Colt Navy (Wild Bill liked it too). But, Even with a Richard’s conversion (allowing cartridges)...fun, interesting...not a gun I’d choose take to a gun fight. In the days they were used, it wasn’t uncommon for someone to carry more than one. Btw, back in the early 70’s, as I have reported before, I witnessed a Brit Para attacked by a fellow with steel rod...the para emptied his 9mm British High Power into the fellow point blank and the fellow reached and killed him before dying.
