In The Rifleman, the most hallowed Western TV series in the history of ever, Lucas McCain fires 11 or 12 shots (depending on who you believe) from a loop levered Winchester in the opening credits.
Today's politicians, especially those in NY, Washington, Illinois, and San Francisco, would call Mr. McCain a psychopath, armed with a weapon of mass destruction, designed only to kill, because it fires more than seven or ten rounds before reloading. Never mind that Lucas usually attempted to resolve issues peacefully before resorting to using his trusty carbine. And I never saw it shoot all by itself.
The lesson though is clear: Don't *mess* with Chuck!
12 shots from an 11 round [tubular] magazine? That's because he was truly that good...
