A BIG THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. FOR THOSE OF YOU DOWN RANGE

A PATRIOT BELIEVES IN IT....A VETERAN LIVED IT
The Way of the Gun.

End the cycle of hatred, donít give them a tomorrow."
Gotta agree with Gunnybunny, Sam Peckinpah was the crown prince at staging shoot 'em ups. His attention to detail was unsurpassed. My two favorite movies are of course, The Wild Bunch and Cross of Iron. As a footnote, I had the pleasure of meeting Peckinpah, Ernest Borgnine, Ali McGraw and Kris Kristofferson back in the 70's when they were filming "Convoy" in New Mexico. (Yeah, I'm that old).

Police Acadamy Tackelberry is the man..........................
Man, I missed out on some good ones.... Eqialibriam was awesome. Matrix was a great gun one and boondock saints also... Can
t believe I didn't think of those.
I'll add the Borne Identity because he dual wields pistols while one is upside down.
(Takes a minute to load cause its HD) Just noticed, He reloads before he drops, fires one shot, then reloads again at the bottom.... hmmm.....
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance....John Wayne, James Stewart.
The Shootist..........John Wayne
Public Enemies......Johnny Depp
Quigley Down Under
and while not really what you would consider a "gun" movie Gran Torino
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Police Academy naturally....
Snatch. The scene where it's replica vs. Desert Eagle cracks me up.
Snatch: Desert Eagle .50 - YouTube (Language NSFW or sensitive ears)
"Sir, could you please not bleed so much? I have to clean the store after they haul you off and I'd like the rest of my shift, to be, like, you know, better."
Deer Hunter..........one bullet.......one shot.
Don't tread on me or mine.
I am comfortable laying on a rock in the sun; bothering no one. If you choose to ignore the above statement, you will wish all you had to do, is deal with a snake.
You guys have seen Goodfellas, right? Some great films have been thrown out, but Goodfellas is still the best.
Other films I like: Boogie Nights, There Will be Blood, Saving Private Ryan, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Reservior Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Dr. Strangelove: Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb, Double Indemnity
A lot of these are crime related and deal with stuff about criminals, so it may not be for everyone, but check 'em out.
Also, watch some John Woo films like Hard Boiled and The Killer if you like ridiculous gun fights.
