Popular Comics #45 - pt. 1
Also note how long they wait for a wandering encounter.
Note that carrying two guns gives the young hoodlum no advantage -- he's still losing the fight with the beat cop.
In both movies and comic books, characters seem to be able to react to guns being fired from hearing them fired. Of course, science tells us the bullet has already passed you before you hear the sound, so Wong is here dodging a second shot, not the first. Also note that the bushes will only serve as soft cover (-1 to hit) -- unless he drops behind them completely to hide, in which case he is effectively invisible and -4 to be hit.
Note how much more quickly the Hurricane Kids can fix a boat than the Professor on Gilligan's Island...
