    Episode 101 - Movie favourites

    Post by sthwestvictoria on Tue Jun 03, 2014 6:39 am

    For myself it would be the Martini-Henry in 577/450 from the 1964 movie Zulu which depicts the battle of Rorkes Drift.



    For off-world firearms it would have to be the M41A Pulse rifle:


       "Lieutenant, what do those Pulse Rifles fire?"
       "10 millimeter explosive-tip caseless. Standard light armor-piercing round, why?"
       ―Ripley and Lt. Gorman (from Aliens)

    And the M2 Browning

    Been meaning to contribute to this thread for a while now.

    Here's one of mine. As a child of the 80's, my first has to be Sonny Crockett and his Bren Ten 10mm

    Oh, and that horizontal shoulder holster carry! That was quite the thing then.

    ?You guys watch any Hell on Wheels. There's some darn neat period weaponry there. Henry's, Yellow Boys, Colt .44's, Remington 1858's & 1872's. You a cowboy shooter, you get a thrill looking at the collection of guns there.

    Never much of an Aliens fan, but ZULU! Now THERE'S a MOVIE! I have watched that repeatedly.

    After reading about it in "Guns of the Old West" I started watching. Best part of that show is when the plot slows down, I still always enjoy seeing the guns.

    I love all the guns in Hell on Wheels.

    ?How about Desperado with Antonio Bandaras. That guitar case filled with guns was really kool. As were the cases his buddies brought with the machine guns in them.

    ?Or how about the TV series, Elliot Ness. I would probably trade a number of my 1911's for the ability to own a Thompson Sunmachine gun! Has to have the charging knob on top and the Cutts compensator. And a drum. Couple sticks are OK, but at least one drum.
