    For me, it will always be the immortal model 29 that Dirty Harry pointed at the bank robber and uttered his famous line:

    You have to ask yourself a question; did he fire 5 rounds or 6. To tell you the truth, in all the excitement I forgot. So do you feel lucky, PUNK. Do Ya??

    The Browning Hi Power Sam Elliot used as the Sgt. Major in "We Were Soldiers". When asked by his CO (Mel Gibson) about a rifle, Sam replied that he suspected there would be plenty of them laying around on the ground if he needed one.

    don't think it was a high power Sam Elliot had, that was a 1911 he was holding.....

    According to the above link it was a 1911. I agree with you though. Iconic movie moment.

    And while not a movie - love the 1911 on Nash Bridges.

    Yeah, Sgt. Major Plumley definitely had a 1911.

    I have been wrong. I could be wrong. I'll watch it again. But there's a scene where, well, uh...let me get back to ya'. If it's a 1911, and it sure looks like y'all are right, then he's shooting a 1911 with a 13 round mag. Maybe that's what set a BHP in my (rapidly aging) memory.

    +3 Only because I can't find one of those movie semi-autos that fire 50 or 60 rounds without reloading.

    No particular gun, but I always thought Battlestar Galactica (the recent series, not the original) had an awesome array of cool, real firearms:

    Easy... Joe Piscopo as a psycho gangster in Johnny Dangerously, pulling out a revolver with a foot-long barrel and saying, "This is an .88 Magnum... this thing shoots through schools..."

    "Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"

    Cheating, since the GE/Dillon M134D "minigun" in Terminator 2 wasn't actually a handgun. Still, it was held in the hand and used as a point-shooting, field-clearing CQB gun by the lead character, so ...
