Open Range - Cowboy's Handshake

“A Cowboy’s word is his sacred bond,
a handshake is more binding than a contract.”

Corny as it may sound there truly was a ‘Code’ in the Old West.
And it was very important.
Break your “Word” and no one would deal with you.
It truly threatened your survival.
Too bad not many people feel the same way today.

Open Range – The Gunfight / Part 1:

I didn’t count the bullets – or the bodies – but the climactic gunfight in
Open Range is one of the longest in all Western movies – some 20 minutes
– give or take a bullet.
A number of different types of firearms are used in this exchange:
3 different handguns; 2 rifles and a shotgun.
The fight is a brilliantly choreographed and certainly one of the more memorable gun battles in all Western Film.
