Please settle a bet on the origin of shooting with pistol in each hand so popular in today's action movies. My earliest recollection of that type of shooting is Chow Yun Fat in John Woo's "A Better Tomorrow." I say he started the whole trend. My friend thinks since John Woo has been influenced by Westerns, it must a Western. I do not ever remember seeing such kind of shooting in a Western. Unfortunately I also believe that John Woo and Chow Yun Fat also started the magic gun trend... you know, the pistols with unlimited supply of bullets.
