<Was he rehearsing a scene? Or just horsing around?>

<<I don't see how that matters.>

I figured this was just a pun as "horsing" around is fairly common on a western. I understand it was a daily occurrance on the Mr. Ed set.

As for the more relevant part, I have heard that several crew members took the same gun earlier in the day, loaded it with live ammo and went out on another part of the set to shoot some cans with it.

Like many things in our world, when the chain of custody is not seriously maintained a negative result occurs. When the one in charge of the chain of custody is grossly inexperienced it sets up the liklyhood of something very bad happening.
