and the gun was a Star, an extra shitty 1911 clone from Espana, which may have misfired. if so, the citizenry and the po-po were spared more bullets going in another direction. ‘course, the shooter ended up dead, so un-sue-able, unlike Bloomie and his city.
Critter may be a little harsh on Star. I don’t know what vintage the shooter had, but there was a time when Bonifacio Echeverria was fairly well thought of. With practice, I think you could shoot consistent ten Ecks.
