When he said he knew Winchester, he wasn't talking about the town in England...

They say the Winchester "won the West". Well at that price, only lawmen and Pinkertons could afford this powerful weapon. So who did that leave? That's right the unsung heroes of the West-the farmer, the farmer's wife, the school teacher, the prospector. You get the picture. So if you couldn't get your trigger-happy fingers on a Winchester, you'd have to make do with a double barreled shot gun. That gun was the genuine equaliser.
