: : My post of yesterday apparently got caught in the middle of the forum changeout, and is now sitting in the vault with no access for reply. If anyone has any thoughts or theories to my question, I'd really be interested in hearing from you. I'd like to know if there was a method to the madness. My post of 11/11 is titled the same. Regards.
: Indy started out with a revolver, but in nepal at the gunfight at marion's bar, he is using an automatic. I'm no gun expert, but this may be the Webley the books refer to.
Well, no, the switch takes place at Napal behind the door, (you can see it happen) after he backs out of the original opening fire, then reappears with a Colt .45. You see the Colt again later in the movie on the ship when the Nazi's arrive at ship side to seize the Ark, therefore the side arm, backup weapon situation that seems to confuse many. I asking why the complete change of revolver from movie to movie, with the huge Webley Mark VI settling in Indy III, and now all the way throughout the novelization. Regards.
