One thing I did like was the showing of the Spencer carbine..Cullens horse was shot out from under him at what looked to be 150 to 200yds. These were a very popular weapon on the post CW frontier..the Govt. sold alot of surplus arms after the war..and Custers 7th..and others were armed with them..and used them in the Wa****a fight. They fired a relativly heavy bullet..but were low velocity due to the pressure limitations of the thin copper rim-fire cases.
