* FiringOneHanded

to:

* FiringOneHandedFiringOneHanded: A necessity for Rane, because he only has one hand.
* HandicappedBadass: Rane gets his hand ''shredded'' on a trash disposal by the rednecks when they steal the silver dollars. He uses a hook hand (which he sharpens to a table-and-head penetrating point) for the rest of the film, and loses very little capacity to kick ass because of this.



* TheStoic

to:

* TheStoicTheStoic: Rane. He's so shell-shocked that his hand getting shredded makes him have flashbacks to his torture as a POV, but absolutely no external response (like screaming).
