Favorite Gun Moments from Hollywood

Mr. 'Frost' has some moments we are eager to hear about so the ball is now rolling:


I remember seeing a film 'Valdez is Coming' when I was a teenager and falling in love with Sharps rifles because of the long shots he was taking with one-----

ooh--ooh! Hey, I just remembered---speaking of Sharps rifles, I defy anyone to top this scene from Lonesome dove for pure fun----and fairly authentic too---at least they show Duvall having to use a rainbow-like trajectory in order to get his bullet to its target....

Let the fun begin.

I guess this is a bit Hollywood even with a Sharps '74 shooting from a rest---since they are moving targets.

Hey, Great!

thanks for reminding me of the movie 'Collateral'-----I've only seen it once, at the movie theater when it first came out. I love movies---but I so rarely see one that deeply
satisfies me---one where I walk out of the theater feeling, 'Wow, now THAT is what movie making is all about....' . And I remember having that feeling coming out of 'Collateral'.
Its not just a shoot'em up action suspense thing---tho it has those in spades---but goes a lot deeper, into what makes people tick....

I never was a Tom Cruise fan either----until I saw this and thought, 'this guy can really have some depth to him if he gets the right film'. Thought that again when I saw
'Minority Report'.

Love that scene from Quigley too!

The scene from Quigley is one of my all-time favorites.
I am kind of like that in reverse.
I favor a handgun but can shoot a rifle.

Collateral is awesome. Love almost all Michael Mann movies Heat, Collateral, Miami Vice. Also got to love Ronin and Way of the Gun.

Haw!

"Give me your keys and other metallic objects"

that is indeed a great gun moment.
It would almost be woth going to jail to be able to flip your coat open and see the look on the guards face...

Of course with some o' the people they have on duty they just might wave you through.

Hollywood & Guns Continued---Votes Solicited

For those of you with too much time on your hands:

http://movieclips.com/iGxW-dances-with- ... roic-shot/


here is a movie gun-scene---now we've had 'lame/pet-peeve' gun moments and 'favorite/Good' gun moments----the question for voting is:

Is this a LAME scene or a GOOD scene?

I think this clip is slightly edited from the movie version---it seems to me that I remember the moment where he raises the rear rifle sight and takes aim is a little more pronounced/noticeable in the movie, I could be wrong tho.

anyway---Watch carefully and vote 'Lame' or 'Good' but tell us why---in as much detail as possible---make your case to the jury.

I would vote "Good", as it pretty much shows you what problems you can have while big game hunting. Sometimes those perfect kill shot/spots don't exactly work as advertised. However, busting up a 4 legged freight train's forward shoulders will make them eat dirt. That last shot he took got 'em in the right shoulder from where the blood bloomed out... or at least the Hollywood blood pack went off there at least. That's why a lot of big game hunters went with the big bore stuff and then big bore magnums- big game bone breakers are definitely preferable. Big boys don't bleed out as fast, those few arrows would make him really mad instead. Not good if they're coming AT you! :shock:

Oh, and your scene could very well be edited- that movie has been cut to all different lengths by all of the networks due to time and commercials and such. No telling how much has been dropped unless you own the original VHS or DVD film.

I liked the big game hunting scenes from the Ghost and the Darkness.
You wouldn't catch me playing with lions or shooting those rifles.
300 RUM is my limit, don't like shotguns either.

Shotguns are not bad.
If you shoot my Saiga you will change your mind about shotgun recoil.
It is the softest shooting shotgun I have fired to date.

There are many good gun scenes. I guess I will say the Normandy invasion scene from "Saving Private Ryan".

How about a nod for Tears of the Sun. With suppressed pistols & rifles plus the M249 SAW it's a black rifle fans dream.

If (big if) I ever get another shotgun it would have to be semi-auto.
What's a bare bones Saiga run? Mag capacity? Weren't they around 400 when they came here?
Probably on the banned list here any way.

Frost could give you a ballpark figure on Saigas.

One of my all time favorite scenes was from the movie "The Cross Of Iron", Sam Peckinpah's first and only war film. The movie starts off with a German recon unit (led by James Coburn) sneaking up on and attacking a Russian mortar emplacement. Great real time and slow motion cinematography!

YouTube doesn't work for me, but here is a link to the beginning of the movie:

They have gone up quite a bit.
I got mine for around 5 if I remember correctly.
It's been a while.
The standard magazine hold 5 rounds, they make 20 round drums.
If you get the opportunity to try one I think you will like it.

Try this place you can get them converted or not.
You may or may not find them cheaper elsewhere.
These guys are usually pretty competitive on pricing.
