 That sounds careless. The standard procedure was.. Ten bullets in two
 guns, not twelwe. That's because the chamber right beneath the hammer
 is almost always empty to avoid accidents. Even today we are teached to
 have an empty chamber in my profession. On the other hand, does $crooge
 reload right *before* the gunfight ( I don't remember ) then he would fill
 them up.
