Are you proficient enough?

Can you holster and un-holster your Peacemaker like the State Trooper (Alex Green) did in the movie 3000 Miles to Graceland? I'll have to admit that was near the edge of perfection and a pleasure to watch. Anything additional known about Alex Green's life/history you could share would be appreciated here.

Got a U-toob link? I stopped going to the cinema after my cousin died (I used to take a disabled cousin to see the color talkies).

High adrenaline and blood pressure after a shoot, I am looking at my holster and guiding my gun in carefully. On the range plinking not so careful but sitll slow and no let go till it is secure in holster. I'm to old, to slow and to uncoordinated for that fancy gun handling stuff.

Sorry 4V50 Gary. I have seen the movie on cable and satellite TV. I suspect it could be rented I'm sure. I have not seen it on normal TV (so to speak) because of its R-rating I believe. Anyway. Mr. Green is very good on camera with his ability to spin a Colt Peacemaker in and out of his western style holster. He's plenty fast, but more precise in his moves while doing it. Pure Precision at its best. Nice clean weapon spins and a ball bearing like cylinder spin done also. Just slick how Mr. Green went about doing it.
