Notice the emphasis on quick draw. It also appears they had speedloaders then or full moon clips which surprised me.
Notice the Colt Police positive .38's.

Thanks Bark'n for correcting the link.
That wasn't a speedloader....just a splice in the original film. They were loading rounds singly.
Very interesting. DA for close and fast, SA for longer range. Did you see how fast that one guy was shucking a shotgun? The shells were coming out (fired) while the gun was still recoiling. Then there was they guy that was shucking out live rounds - I suspect he washed out. Thanks for sharing.

It’s always weird to me when I see such videos knowing that everyone in it is already dead, and those guns are likely still around.

That one guy looked like Brodrick Crawford! Oh, never mind, he was on "Highway Patrol"!
