Please don't Flame me too bad. We all know what the greatest gun is or we wouldn't be on this site. My opinion, is that the movie " Last Man Standing " w/ Bruce Willis is the greatest 1911/1911A1 movie made. My question ( opinions and why are welcome but knowlegde and capable verification is greatly appreciated ) WHAT CALIBER ARE BRUCE WILLIS' GUNS???? I was under the impression that they were 45's, but a fellow shooter says they're 38super. Which is correct and where can I find it . I couldn't locate the info on either the movie webpage or Bruce Willis' webpage. PLEASE SOMEONE SHOW ME THE CORRECT ANSWER!!! Thanks in advance. Tracy

I'm going to have to rent that movie again. Lots of what I assumed was .45 action but if was .38 super, oh well. With Hollywood's socialistic/anti gun orientation I don't even know where to look for the answer to your question.

The ammo and the magazines he was loading were definately .45 cal.

While it may be possible that some of the pistols he used were .38 super.
(I watched it again last night to verify)
In several scenes you can see the barrels/muzzles and they are .45s.

A little movie trivia - Last Man Standing is a remake of famed Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo" and so is Sergio Leone's "A Fistful of Dollars"

I have the movie.
The magazines are definitely .45ACP.
The guns appear to be milspec 1911A1 .45ACP.

Bear in mind that the guns he actually shoots may be a different caliber than those he holds in non-shooting poses. It can be tricky to get the .45 to cycle Hollywood blanks reliably (you don't want to deafen the stars, for one thing) and they will often substitute a smaller caliber version for the shooting bits.
