Goofs

For the pig hunt, Massino hands out four revolvers, a Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873, a Colt 1878 Double Action Army, a Colt New Service modified with an ejector rod to resemble a Single Action Army, and a Webley Mk VI. He then says that when the hunt begins, safety catches may be removed, and clicking noises are heard when this is done. None of the weapons in question, however, was ever equipped with a manual safety of any kind. See more »

Quotes

Grammaticoff: There is only one thing these people don't do over a table, and that they do under it.
