Clint Eastwood is both the director and star in this traditional Western from 1985. The movie has everything that his fans have come to expect including action, drama, and plenty of guns of Pale Rider. This time he plays a reticent stranger, called Preacher, who says little but carries a big stick (literally). Early in the movie, he confronts several men who have ganged up on an innocent settler. His weapon? An ax handle that he wields to turn the attackers into a heap of broken bodies.
“There’s plain few problems can’t be solved with a little sweat and hard work.” -Preacher (Clint Eastwood)But before Preacher ever arrives on the scene, we witness a raid on an independent gold-mining camp. Orchestrated by the son of a local banker on his father’s orders, the camp is left in ruins. The only casualties are some cattle, killed by one of the thugs with a Colt Single-Action Army Cavalry revolver. They also shoot a small white dog shot down with a Colt 1860 Army with Richards Conversion. Let’s look at these guns of Pale Rider below:
