"Shooting Orders!!" is the sixty-sixth episode of the Red Jacket series.


Lupin tries to take it easy while Zenigata's away, but he suddenly finds himself being shot at. It's the coming of Beauty, who has accepted secret shooting orders from ICPO Headquarters. At the site where Lupin meets him for a one-on-one showdown, Lupin is blown away by Beauty's powerful Dum-Dum rounds, but gets away with his life thanks to Jigen's last-second save. When Jigen confronts Beauty to avenge Lupin, Lupin has only one handmade fulminate-of-mercury round for Jigen's gun!


  • Beauty's monstrous Colt Python was in-fact, a real revolver produced by Colt from 1955 to 1999. Often revered for it's exceptional accuracy, trigger pull, and cylinder lock-up, the Python soon became a standard issue firearm for many police departments around the country. After many years of service, Pythons soon fell out of favor due to many law enforcement departments preferring the use of semi-automatic weapons. Due to it's reputation and cease of production, the Colt Python has become a highly sought after collector's piece.
  • Contrary to what is stated in the episode, Dum-Dum bullets (otherwise known as hollow point bullets) were first banned in the Hague Convention of 1899 and not the Geneva Convention. Also, Declaration III of Hague Convention forbids "the usage of weapons designed to aggravate injured victims or make their death inevitable" strictly in international warfare, meaning that officers of Law Enforcement Agencies are more than free to use hollow points in civilian situations.
