After the Civil War, Cord McNally searches for the traitor whose treachery caused the defeat of McNally's unit and the loss of a close friend.
Oww, take it easy.
Phillips: Stop your squawking, you ain't hurt.
Cord McNally: Splatter gun is useless.
Phillips: You don't mind if I shoot do you? Makes me feel better.
The percussion and black powder revolvers used during the mid 1800's did not have sealed cartridges to protect the powder from moisture in the air, rain, etc. and certainly could not withstand being submerged in a river and then fired. In the movie, at the 29 minute mark, the Confederate sergeant has concealed himself underwater in the river while breathing through a cut reed. He then comes out of the river and sneaks through the brush with his pistol in hand as if he thinks it is going to fire if he needs to use it.
