When Wash is shooting at Rance's men on board the Serenity, he is shown using a large caliber revolver. The chamber never revolves when he fires. And while he fires much faster than should be possible for a revolver of that caliber, they can be loaded with less powerful rounds, a .38 loaded in a .357 for example. See more
Math just don't add up. Our weapon store aren't exactly overpowerin' at the moment, and I don't much like what we'd be up against. Nothing worse than a monster who thinks he's right with God.
