The question I refer to is "How many shots in a six-gun?"

Regardless of what Wyatt Earp may have stated, a myth still repeated today by the ignorant, there is no safety factor in having an empty chamber under the hammer. I own several revolvers, including a modern replica of the one Earp is reputed to use, and they all have a 'quarter-cock' position that holds the hammer completely clear of the cartridge.
