A drifting gunslinger-for-hire finds himself in the middle of an ongoing war between the Irish and Italian mafia in a Prohibition era ghost town.
The weapon of choice for John Smith is the government model Colt 1911 A1 .45 caliber automatic, of which he carries a brace in a double shoulder holster rig. In one scene, it is evident that he also carries upwards of twenty-five spare 7-round magazines for his pistols.
It's a funny thing. No matter how low you sink there's still a right and wrong. You always end up choosing. You go one way so you can try to live with yourself. You go the other, you'd still be walkin' around, but you're dead and you don't even know...
The first time John Smith puts on his holster and pistols, the grip frames are pointing behind him. This would make it very difficult for him to pull the weapons in a timely manner when needed. However, when the time comes minutes later for him to pull the weapons, the grips are facing in the appropriate position for a quick draw and shoot.
