Not all of the episodes of

The Riflemandepened on

extreme gun violence.


There were two episodes where

Mr.ConnorsMr.Lucas McCain

delt with his problems with

care,love and wisedom.


One show he helped a young

girl..who was being prssured to

become Queen by an overbearing

prime minister and an cruel

lady in waiting.


He told the young queen that

she can't adbicated her throne to

become a farm girl on The McCain

ranch.


She has reasponsibilities to her

people and she has to take her place

on the throne.


But?

McCalinalso told the queen's

staff that with that reasponsibility

..there has to be aide in maintaining

the relm


And they have to be kind and helpful

to their monarch..not abusive and

controlling.


On another episode..Mark McCain

(played by former kid actor and singer

Johnny Crawford)had to deal with an

obnoxious and controlling school

teacher.


Who taught by being patronizing,

cruel and selfish.


Mark and one of his schoollmates

left school and went out investigating

an old abandeon mine.


Which caved in on them.


It took the efforts of both

Mr.McCain and the schoolteacher

to save the two boys from a near

fatal tradgety.


From these two episodes..the

adults learn important lessions

..without the use of violence.


And..Thank God!


So did the viewing members of

the show's loyal audience.

I used to get a kick out of the way Mark would always say, ...but Paw!
I loved this show as a kid. Anyone remember Chuck Connors in A Cowboy in Africa? I think it was short lived.

I remember A Cowboy In Africa. It was spun off from the movie Africa: Texas Style that starred Hugh O' Brian.

People still wonder how many shots did Lucas (Chuck Connors) shoot at the beginning of The Rifleman?
Posted by: Marty6697 on 2008-03-11 
I think thirteen shots! What you think Cliffy?

Chuck Connors fires twelve shots from this 11-round rifle during the opening credits. Seven shots in the first closeup as the credits open and then five more shots are shown as the camera switches to another view. Then he swings the rifle to cock it and reaches for a round from his shirt pocket. The rifle was chambered in .44-40 caliber which could be used as six-gun cartridges or rifle rounds.

The Rifleman's Rifle The trick feature of the rifle was a screw pin attached to the large loop lever which was positioned so as to trip the trigger when the ring was slammed home, thus allowing Lucas to rapid-fire the rifle, similarly to a semi-automatic pistol. The trigger trip screw pin was also used in two configurations. Sometimes Chuck had the screw head turned inside close to the trigger. Most of the times he had it on the outside of the trigger guard with a lock nut on the outside to further secure its position. In some of the episodes the screw was taken out completely when rapid fire action was not needed. When properly adjusted, this screw “squeezed” the trigger when the lever was fully closed
