    Question C'mon.......... is everybody sure?

    My guess is this: that scene was probably filmed in Hawaii, where the series is actually located. Since he was supposed to be sitting in an Australian car, and Aussie cars have the steering wheel on the right side, they probably figured it was cheaper just to reverse the image on film than have a right-side-drive car imported for this brief scene.
    I guess you can do anything with computer graphics, but it seems like something that wouldn't occur to them in this instance. Is everybody sure that there are NO left handed revolvers made?

    Okay, I found THIS on an archive from TheFiringLine forum dated DEC 2002:

    In the past...
    At least three makers have made revolvers that have the release on the right side (or centered in front) and the cylinder swings out to the right.
    Nothing in recent years.


    But they had no pics and I understand that these firearms are antiques and the gun on the show is clearly a modern snubnose....therefore the obvious answer is a bit of Hollywood CGI magic.

    I searched the web using every set of "key words" that I could think of trying to find a recent or modern revolver with a cylinder that opened on the right/wrong side.
    No luck at all.

    I've seen one. A Dan Wesson designed for silhouette that one of the local 4H guys has.
