Two times Hugh Glass shoots his single-shot flintlock pistol twice in rapid succession without reloading it or having any time to do so. Loading these pistols is fairly time-consuming - requiring the shooter to point the pistol upward, pour gunpowder down the barrel, then insert a lead ball with a cloth patch around it, ram it down with a ramrod, pour priming powder into the pan, close the frizzen, and cock the hammer. He does this when he steals a horse from the french, and again when the Indians attack him shortly after this. An experienced shooter could do this fairly quickly, and maybe take a shortcut or two, but in both these instances the movie depicts him firing the pistol, then immediately jumping on a horse and shooting someone else with the pistol only seconds later.
