Always save the 7th shot for evil!
17 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If this is the movie I think it is, it is about a cowboy who is given a golden 7-shooter (vs the standard 6 shooters) by his mentor. He is given the wisdom "always save the 7th shot for evil!".

At once point he is tested by a saloon girl and former acquaintance of his mentor and she throws a playing card in the air (7 of hearts?) and he shoots six of the seven hearts on the card and when he is asked why he didn't shoot the seventh, it's the "always save the 7th shot for evil!". When I was a kid this was a great movie, if I saw it now it might have been uber cheesy.

It's been decades since I've seen this movie, so I'm real fuzzy on it, but I'd love to find a copy of it someplace.
