Re: Worst Superhero ever

I'll add, I'm not anti-Superman. It just seems that over time, his powers have grown to a point where they don't really fit. Same with Wonder Woman; use to be she was just strong, had to block bullets with the bracelets, had to use a plane (though invisable) to fly, etc. Now she flys, and seems just...

Re: Rifleman

If I recall, and its been a bit since I've looked it up, the rifle in question could carry 12 in the magazine and 1 in the chamber for a total of 13 - the number of shots in the opening. This would be a amazingly unsafe way to carry the rifle in real life, but would account for the opening.

Interesting trivia of sorts; the firing sounds were blanks vs sound overs. Conners practiced flipping and cocking the rifle so he could actually do it (and not misfire), and the changes to the loop over the years were based on his suggestions.
