    I did a bit of "googling" and came up with this.
    It doesn't say what caliber revolver the Lone Ranger character carried, but this replica is in .45 LC and purportedly is/was approved by Clayton Moore.

    Since the Lone Ranger was presumably (?) a recovering Texas Ranger, I would think he would carry a .45 LC. (?)
    Seems I remember the reason for the mask was scarring around his eyes from an injury. Again... (?)

    As for the bullet material? I dunno?

    Okay! The Lone Ranger was a TV crime/drama series. Everything was "make believe" as realistic as it seemed.
    Those old black and white TV's required children of the 50's to use a LOT of imagination! LOL!

    HIS BULLETS WERE PURE SILVER! 🤠!
    Ask any kid of the 50's!
    Sterling silver isn't pure silver. It's like 90%/95% silver!
    Heck! That was THE Lone Ranger! Nothing but silver bullets were good enough for him! LOL!

    It was David Chipman.

    Good riddance.

    Sorry Bubba, I can not recall the name of the agent. My news supplier is Smart News, they keep articles up only a couple hours before new coverage is reported. The article has since been replaced and I can no longer recover it !

    Wasn't that Chipman that Biden nominated for the BATFE position that had lost his firearm? ....a M4?
    ...and those guys are required to fly "hot"?
    Geezo! 😖

    I agree with you - it is absurd idea for a trained person.

    Texas has a "State Guard" (TSG) that is already assigned to assist CBP. Just not in an enforcement capacity.
    That does free up a few more CBP agents for patrol duty.
    The TSG is an extension of the Nat'l Guard.
    The Nat'l Guard is also on duty along the southern border..... BUT.... the Nat'l Guard doesn't have the authority to enforce federal law.
    The Nat'l Guard helps with CBP vehicle maintenance and other nonenforcement activities.

    BUT.....not a bad idea!
    I suppose if a few thousand US citizens decided to visit the border.....?
    Interested in visiting the Rio Grande?

    ....and I wouldn't want a massive number of armed citizens standing at the border! To many hotheads, itchy fingers and Deputy Doo Right wannabes.
    It might turn into another AB moment.
    I really don't think you would want that.
    I think the locals should be deputized to help the border Patrol enforce the law.

    Again, as others have stated, there is no reason to have a real gun on a movie set!

    Three people, at least, handled the gun without the basic gun use safty rule that you always check the chamber or cylinder to verify the condition. Stupid. Stupid. STUPID.

    Lots of blame to go around but the GC is still screwed.
    Who is the somebody ? If Rental Co., they are liable. If a Contractor operator, he and Contractor are to be liable. However, some safety systems are not even known to the user and could inadvertantly be inactivated.

    With Baldwin, if it really was a real bullet, there is no reason to ever have real live ammo on the set - where did that real round come from? Who got it. Are there any more real bullets on the set? Has any projectile been recovered ?
