    I like the old westerns where the cowboy snaps the gun at the intended target like he is trying to add some velocity to the bullet or perhaps some "English".

    I second the shootout scene in 'Heat'. Very well done.

    Some good advice from Kirk Douglas

    Although mostly just Hollywood gun play, the advice at the end of the scene is spot on.

    I'm not really into the shootout parts, I like slick gun handling.

    The scenes in Heat on the freeway, harkens to two master samurai, they know they are dealing with someone equally dangerous, but it may not be time to go guns just yet, a split second may decide it. Robert D. running the P220 down by his thigh while Pacino's Officer Colt with Ivory gets palmed and bladed away.

    The "oh crap these guys are trained pros working together and this just became a no win/pay-day situation for us", threat assessment in Way of The Gun. The communication and decision making, while covering the threat, (scripted, but they were cool-gunfighter-guy enough to depict that so I appreciate their art).

    The Wick franchise started out nice, but has disappointed me terribly. Furthermore I am not some gun whore John Wick franchise, if there is no story for a renascence man like myself, I'll be on the range doing cool gun stuff myself instead of watching your garbage, straighten up. ( just in the off chance they are here looking for ideas ).

    I think the film won a prestigious award for the sound work in that scene if I recall correctly. Kind of impressive anyone thought about the sound with the amazing visual and gun work.
    I believe there to be a kinda confirmed rumor, a tippy tip end of the spear unit in our military used Val Kilmer's emergency reload time as a benchmark in their training.

    I really love this scene:

    Great weapons handling
    The sound is correct
    Nice pre-tacticool AR platform guns (current AR "Barbie" guns are so boring)
    Use of open sights for real aiming

    Just a one main negative:

    The uniformed LAPD shoot like Stormtroopers and have a realistically low effectiveness of LEO return fire. Of course, losing all of the main characters in the shootout would have had an adverse impact on the plot.

    I know it's fantasy but as a Stephen King Dark Tower series fan I gotta mention Roland the Gunslinger.
