.....and off to finish the movie like nothing happened. Just another shallow actor.
At the end of the day he was holding the gun.I thought it was a weak case to start with brought on by a sense of, we can't let the big guy get away with it.
Sometimes the fact of the matter is that it is just the little guy's fault.
Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.At the end of the day he was holding the gun.
The gun went off, and was determined that it would not go off by itself…
I really don’t see how that’s a weak case.
Plenty other folks have been convicted on less.

Hmmm not yet off the hook. Plus there may be civil lawsuits in the wings and the bar of proof is much lower then.Looks like there may be more to the story and that things may not be done yet:
Having been to the Ballistics Reaearch Lab lab the FBI DS has, and knowing some the agents that work in it, I’m very curious to the statement.Looks like there may be more to the story and that things may not be done yet:
It would be a single action, as they require being cocked before fired. But most of the older guns could be dropped with being fired due to the amount of sear engagement between the trigger and hammer.Double action revolver pulls on a classic western revolver might have been to heavy for most actors and the trigger pull weight may have been reduced or the action polished, perhaps to much that would allow the hammer to release in single action?
Pretty much as long as there have been revolvers There been some form of double action mechanism. Although they seem to have been mostly European in origin. And pretty delicate as well.It would be a single action, as they require being cocked before fired. But most of the older guns could be dropped with being fired due to the amount of sear engagement between the trigger and hammer.
DA revolvers generally came about after the cowboy days, with Colt in 1877, and Smith and Wesson in 1880.
Not to say there where using one there, but based on some of the earlier comments about needing to cock the hammer, I had figured it was a single action.
The problem far too often is that ‘gunsmiths’ don’t understand what they are doing and instead of just polishing the mating surfaces, they file them down removing material, so instead of a smoother and fairly insignificantly lighter pull (but it feels lighter), you get a dramatically lighter and potentially dangerous trigger pull.If you modified your trigger pull you really had to known what you were doing . Remember a gunsmith who said he hated two things in life, modified Colt SAA trigger groups and the people who modified Colt SAA trigger groups.
