When Philo is retelling his re-enacted version of the crime, he says Brisbane removed the revolver from the drawer, then he pointed the revolver and shot Archer. All good except for the fact it was not a revolver. It was an automatic pistol. A revolver has a round cylinder that holds the bullets, and revolves as you fire it.
