This makes sense.
The plot hole that doesn't make sense is, why wouldn't he tell Django about it beforehand? He's got a guy with a 600-round magazine in his revolver capable of defeating anywhere from 30-60 bad guys in one sitting without sustaining a scratch, and he doesn't tell him to be on his toes? Makes no sense.
