"Heat," hands down.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

Movies not scene wise my picks would be....
Along the same lines as Shooter, Enemy at the Gates would be in my top three
YouTube - Enemy at the gates kills
and rounding out the top three movies for me would be Blackhawk Down
YouTube - Black Hawk Down - Little bird attack
Night scene was just one of the visually more cool parts of the movie.

Jacob McCandles (John Wayne) in the movie Big Jake. The gunfight scene is later, but this clip sets it up. Something tells me we should send a copy of this clip to that scramble brains in Iran. "Anything blows up, anywhere in the world...your fault...my fault...nobodies fault...we're going to blow you to the moon!"
The new movie "The Book of Eli" with Denzell Washington has a great gunfight as well as some knife-weilding action. A great movie with a great message, it will appeal to Western fans.
For you city-slickers there's "The International" with Clive Owen. The protagonist battles multiple assailants in the Guggenhiem Museum in NY City. Fast-forward to the fight scene, they really shoot up the place.
a lot of excellent scenes mentioned. I would like 2 from my top 10.
1. the ending of "LA Confidential" - lotsa' shotgun/revolver work; they actually reloaded their pistols and long guns, did a few New York reloads, and seem's believable terminal effects of the rounds.
2. Band of Brothers - 2.a. attack on the Kraut Arty positions led by Winters, great infantry action, M1s and Tommy guns in play on Easy Co during D-day; 2.b. the action in Market-Garden - Winters ran too fast for the company to follow, the Company got the drop on some SS Company and turned out to be a turkey shoot. I think both actions epitomize the infantry's goal of "closing with and destroying the enemy, by fire and maneuver." this was great stuff.
I can't wait for the whole "Pacific" version of this series finish so I can get the season's DVDs.
"embrace the suck" - our warriors in the sandbox... it implies that do the best you can in impossible conditions.
"no plan survives intact upon contact with the enemy" - wisdom of the Grunts.
Not much of a "gunfight" but still a great movie scene. End of Quigley Down Under.
