What about Mortimer's Buntline Special (1889 i think)?


Actually almost everyone who sees that gun automatically assumes its a "Buntline Special". Mostly because that is all they have ever associated it with,  but in reality Colt made long barreled revolvers that they called "Colt Carbines" since the 1850's, you could order what ever length barrel you wanted. I thing its just Mortimer's version of a revolving carbine.

no you are right they (most) people call it a Buntline Special, but I'm just saying they made long barrled Colts long before Buntline gave his "specials" to Wyatt & Bat.

I thing its just Mortimer's version of a revolving carbine, with a "pistol grip", That he probably adds the rifle stock attachment to.

I personally view this trilogy the same way I view the Jack Ryan/Tom CLancy movies. Same guy? Yes. Same Universe? Who knows, its possible (In the books Im sure they are, but the movies rarely allude to others in the group.)

I'd like to think he's the same guy, it helps you connect with the character more by knowing what sort of things have shaped his life. If you take it as three chronological films, its no wonder by the time we get to FFDM that Blondie doesnt say much, I mean look at everything he's seen in his life. He's watched a country tear itself apart. He's seen hundreds of men die, many at his own hand. I can only imagine that all the money he has made was spent on women and booze. I wish FFDM was the last chronologically, it ends on a high note for the character. After all of the death and destruction he has witnessed, he finally sees someone do something worth while and almost chivalrous (Mortimer blasting away Indio for his sister). After seeing some good left in the world, he rides off with a butt load of cash. Its a shame FFDM wasnt the thrid one chronologically, it ends perfectly for the character.

Very well made points. I often just see it as a chronological trilogy for my own amusement. Just for cheap kicks. An example I can use to make a small point: The Spanish Civil War Trilogy. A great trilogy, still in the making from Guillermo del Toro. In the first movie, The Devil's Backbone, it features two kid actors who have cameos in the second: Pan's Labyrinth. In that one they're now guerrilla soldiers, and they're only featured for a few shots. No one would even notice if the director hadn't pointed it out on the commentary. My point is: same universe, so what? Believe what you want. Other wise both plots of the two movies had nothing in common. Nothing. Say that an author decided to link a bunch of his favorite creations for a crossover. He writes it in. Say that then the author writes an apocalypse story where the sun blows up. After that he writes a small novel about... a dude in New York City. That would contradict the previous story, as long as the characters are linked. I'm just saying that in a way, you get to pick and choose what you believe. Well to be honest, my example was really sketchy.
