In some Clint Eastwood western in the final bad guy massacre scene he uses some kind of single action wherein he reloads by quickly swapping out preloaded cylinders. Just Hollywood theatrics?
The move was Pale Rider, and the gun was a Remington 1858 New Army. It was not Hollywood theatrics, though as another poster pointed out, most back then couldn't afford extra cylinders.

For most of us, the double action is the preferred revovler for self defense. But I know a couple of guys who know how to run a single action, and they are plenty capable of protecting themselves. Incidentally though, both carry a Kel Tec as a BUG (I think both used the P3AT, but one of them may have been a P32).
