* RevolversAreJustBetter: The Dandies like old style guns and Jamie Bell's own personal gun "Wendy" happens to be one of these.

* TriggerHappy: At first the Dandies have strict laws as to where they can fire, but toward the end of the film, it pretty much devolves into this.

* RecklessGunUsage: Dandies are careful to avoid this at first, but eventually it happens. Could be UnfortunateImplications, seeing as the black characters are guilty of this.

* FiringOneHanded: Pretty much all the Dandies shoot this way.
* GunsAkimbo: Alison Pill's character is the only one who gets this.
* ICallItVera: All the Dandies name their guns. The guns have both masculine and feminine names.
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: "Dear Wendy, this was a total F**kup."
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Yep, pretty much all the characters as they get nice little bull's-eyes and excellent clusters. Heck, Jamie Bell's character can get bull's-eyes firing blindfolded with just one hand!

* PinballProjectile: Alison Pill's character specialises at this.
* RecklessGunUsage: Dandies are careful to avoid this at first, but eventually it happens. Could be UnfortunateImplications, seeing as the black characters are guilty of this.
