Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    That was terribly awful and magnificently awesome at the same time.

    And it most assuredly did not help me fight the Cowboy Action Shooting bug that's bitten me as of late!  :banghead

    Yup.  It was so bad so quick you just couldn't turn away.   :facepalm     Reminds me of the old Gary Larsen "Far Side" cartoon.  A two panel number that on the left, shows those entering the pearly gates of Heaven where the caption reads, "Welcome to Heaven, here's your harp."  and on the right shows those passing through the gates of Hell and the caption reads, "Welcome to Hell, here's your accordion.".     :doh

    If I didn't think I would die horribly in the process, it might be cool to hop a train. I reckon it's illegal as hell, dangerous, and you have a good chance of being shanked in your sleep or having your s___ stolen.
