It was commonplace for cavalry soldiers to carry multiple weapons, especially revolvers. Most revolvers of the day were breech loaders that required a soldier to put powder in, followed by a bullet, then rammed home and capped for each individual chamber and revolvers could have 6 or more chambers. Obviously in the middle of a gunfight this process would leave the soldier vulnerable and so they just carried multiple pistols or cylinders so as to always have something loaded.
