Yep, Alamo, that is pretty much what I meant about his being beaten to a frazzle. He was probably shaking with rage, also. Just couldn't handle it in that condition with only one hand! KEITH
By the by, James Coburn in the Magnificent 7 used two hands on his pistol when making the "worst" shot ever (aiming at the escaping bandito's horse).
I always felt he used two hands due to his hands either being hurt in the fight, or being so frustrated it took him both hands just to steady and cock the piece.
