Although Rey Mysterio did not join the faction at first, he did become a member. The LWO was driven by pride in their heritage and the lucha libre traditions. However, after an injury sidelined Eddie Guerrero in , the reunited factions of The nWo attacked the Mexican competitors and forced them to disband.
La Parka stood out from other Cruiserweights because of his unique and sometime comedic mannerisms, rather than any high-flying ability. Although he never captured a championship during his time in WCW, American audiences certainly remember the charismatic former Latino World Order member. Third-generation Mexican-American Superstar and nephew of Eddie Guerrero, Chavo Guerrero is a member of the legendary Guerrero family and an accomplished competitor in his own right.
He also possessed a unique mix of lucha libre and traditional American style of in-ring abilities. A little known fact is that Chavo only competed in a handful of matches before competing in WCW, which nobody could discern by how quickly he honed his skills. Until the s, when older-design revolvers such as the Colt Single Action Army and Ruger Blackhawk were re-engineered with drop safeties such as firing pin blocks , hammer blocks , or transfer bars that prevent the firing pin from contacting the cartridge's primer unless the trigger is pulled, safe carry required the hammer being positioned over an empty chamber, reducing the available cartridges from six to five, or, on some models, in between chambers on either a pin or in a groove for that purpose, thus keeping the full six rounds available.
This kept the uncocked hammer from resting directly on the primer of a cartridge. If not used in this manner, the hammer rests directly on a primer and unintentional firing may occur if the gun is dropped or the hammer is struck.
Some holster makers provided a thick leather thong to place underneath the hammer that both allowed the carry of a gun fully loaded with all six rounds and secured the gun in the holster to help prevent its accidental loss.
Six guns are used commonly by single-action shooting enthusiasts in shooting competitions, designed to mimic the gunfights of the Old West, and for general target shooting, hunting and personal defense.
