The Photographer

Post by flabirder »

If Doc Burrage took the bullet out of Colonel Whiteside, why couldn't he tell the difference between a bullet from a rifle & one from a pistol? In fact, he never even testified at Abel's trial. Also, if Abel had just fired his gun, Micah should have been able to smell gunpowder when he took it from Abel.

Sure Doc Burrage lived in North Fork, and occasionally removed buckshot from Fred's butt, but was he an expert in ballistics? Lucas did not start to learn ballistics until the tail end (no pun intended) of the series. We know for a fact Doc Burrage certainly was not an expert on doctor-patient confidentiality!

That is true, but a rifle bullet is larger than a bullet from a .45 caliber pistol. In the episode where Lucas learns about ballistics, they're talking about the markings made on the bullet by the gun, not the size of the bullet. When I was in Boot Camp, our weapons instructor had us firing both rifles and .45 caliber pistols as well as shotguns so I learned about the size difference then.
