That was a pretty cool shootout. That movie had a LOT of cool shooting scenes!KtownKimber said:Speaking of The Way Of The Gun, how awesome was James Caan in that movie! The scene where he is shooting up the 2 main guys with a S&W snubbie and pulling off some perfect tactical reloads was admirable in hollywood. I read somewhere that Caan has trained at Gunsite in the past.
Okay I reviewed the movie because I was secnd guessing myself. It is a Berreta 92...my bad.shinobee said:Im gonna get hate mail for this, but the 1911 that sticks out in my head the most is............ Mercutio's 1911 from the Romeo and juliet remake in 1997.
This is gonna hurt.......
I think I've read somewhere that the actual tunnel rats in Vietnam used any other pistol they could get their hands on except for a 1911 due to the 1911's heavy recoil and loud blast in enclosed spaces. When possible, .38s were used. Of course, that wasn't always an option, so 1911's went into many tunnels, I'm sure.F16DCC said:Oh has anyone mentioned Platoon yet??? When William Dafoe takes a flashlight and a 1911 into the tunnels to search for VC. I couldn't imagine firing a 45 inside an enclosed space like a tunnel- talk about LOUD!!! That movie is up there in my top favorite movies as well. :rock:
Kick me out of the forums if I am wrong, but I was just sure Lt. Colonel Markenson used a Berreta in that scene.Misfit said:In A Few Good Men the Lt. Colonel (played by J.T. Walsh) blows his brains out with a nickel plated 1911, after he gets into his full dress uniform.
