Well, I must admit, from the get go & it being a Kevin Costner movie, I totally expected it to be a stinker but was completely surprised. It caught the mood of the period & the mixture of both percussion & cartridge revolvers was a nice touch, as many on both sides of the issue probably couldn't afford a cartridge weapon & one could assume that the weapons carried were from the war of northern aggression, when the men returned home from the war. Also, besides the T.D.'s, did you catch the Remington rolling blocks plus the Henry's, 66 Winchester carbines & a trapper model Winchester carbine. Phillips, the bounty hunter, carried the latest models, since they were the tools of his trade. The shoulder holsters were a nice touch also. A well made movie which is a rarity in the day & age.
