Seems as though I saw something about this before... Kindly direct me to the post and I'll read them. I did some searches, but never found what I was looking for.
I love to watch John Wayne spin the revolvers (Searchers, Liberty Valance). I know these are not real, but they are replicas of large caliber revolvers. I handle a .357 and there is no way I could ever spin it like that. I'm no where near as large as Duke and I have small hands, but I'm still amazed watching this. I was wondering if the guns in the movies are much lighter than the real thing, or was Duke just real good at this. I'm assuming the guns in the movies were supposed to be .45's.
