    Oh yeah - I nearly forgot Jack Bauer. Though with how many times he kills people a "day" I wouldn't blame him for leaving his finger on the trigger.

    I know this isnít the way of CC or what this thread is about, but I donít give a damn what goes on in movies. Movies are for entertainment, not learning, studying or anything else.
    Also, while we are on this topic, who cares what an actor thinks about any subject? They are paid because they look good on the screen, nothing more. I am glad Mr. Selleck is pro gun, but he is just a man like you and I. Rosie is a cow, and she needs hauled off to market. That mouth of hers is better suited for chewing grass, not spewing her own brand of stupidity for all the lesser minds to absorb.

    Oh yeah, a high budget film will train its actors to be who they need to be. Good gun handling skills in a movie says to me that the director is good and detail driven. Cruise was good in that movie; he went through a lot of training to be that convincing. I would bet that empty headed waste of space doesnít support your right to own a gun.
    Sorry, I needed to get that out of my system. I'm better now.

    I loved the movie and thought Tom did a great job overall especially drawing the weapon. Being a nerd- I watched the movie with directors commentary turned on. They hired Andy McNabb (former SAS) as the weapons and fighting choreographer (sp?)

    Also- even though Tom did action movies like Mission Impossible, he said he had never shot a REAL gun. McMann (director) and McNabb MADE him train at a pistol range with a real gun and live ammo before they filmed the movie.

    Instead of concern regarding which actors own or "handle" guns in their personal life, I worry about which gun owners are "actors", lacking the training to skillfully employ their firearms if necessity dictates....

    I'm sure actors and directors revel in the fact that they can show irresponsible gun use to all the sheeple.

    Now see, SIXTO, there's your problem, you just won't say what you think without beatin' around the bush.

    I always watch for proper gun handling skills also. I thought Cruise did very well in Collateral.

    HEAT was another movie with a lot of guns and had good handling and bad as well.

    I am interested in seeing the Tom Selleck Movies now.

    You missed out, man! It's one of those movies I can watch over, and over, and over again! I can not say enough good things about Tom and his portrayl of "Jesse Stone" He really brings Jesse to life.

    Truly his best acting performance ever...IMO.

    You can catch the 4th "Jesse Stone" movie Sea Change on CBS come May.

    Two real actors/"gun nuts" come to mind: Chuck Connors (Rifleman) and Sammy Davis Jr.

    In addition to watching the finger position - on the trigger or indexed on the side, I've started counting the shots fired before a reload. Amazing how they pack those mags full of ammo!
