    AA-12 in The Expedables. Great fight scene, but the money shot comes in at around 3:00.

    Enjoy!

    Well, if you count muzzleloaders, I have a few. That and the oft seen in WWII movies P-38 and 1911, a '92 Winchester and Colt SAA. All the modern stuff aside, the coolest movie gun ever has to be the 7 barrel, Nock volley gun carried by Richard Widmark as David Bowie in the John Wayne movie version of "The Alamo". If you watch closely, in the opening sequences of "Jerimiah Johnson" you can see the Indian, Paints His Shirt Red is carrying a muzzleloading combination gun. That's pretty cool as well.

    Big Sky. Kirk Douglas mountain-man flick. His young buddy, Dewey Martin, carries an over/under twist-barrel rifle.

    Quigley's Shiloh Sharps.

    They had one in the local Scheels and now my drool is all over the glass.

    The movie Union Pacific with Joel McCrea came out in 1939, had one of the earliest uses of a original Henry rifle in a movie. i always wonder who donated it. I doubt if Joel M. walked into the movie props room and picked it up off the table. Now a days those guns go around $20,000. Even back then they were probably fairly valuable.

    If it's movie guns we are after, I want the Hollywood silencers that sound like a mouse spitting.
    Also, the 1873 Colt that drops three bad guys with each shot.
    And the 1911 that never needs reloading.
    The AR-15 that goes "click-click-click" when empty might be fun too.
    ;)

    In The Man From Laramie, when the bad cowboys was whoopin' on Jimmy Stewart, one of the smaller ranchers, Aline MacMahon, stopped 'em with a Henry.

    And being a 1950s movie, there were no replicas - it was a real Henry.

    Lookin' at her, sittin' in that buckboard aimin' that rifle, there was no doubt in my mind that, if they didn't let him go, there was gonna be dead cowboys in the street. She was believable.

    Actually back then they were obsolete or on their way to obsolescence because rimfire ammo for them was getting harder and harder to find.

    BTW, the early episodes of Bonanza features Pa and the boys using Henry rifles.

    Grizz, i doubt he fired it anyway. The couple of times he seemed to fire it i'm sure it was Hollywood sound effects. Pretty good movie though. Lots of big time movies came out in 1939. I think that one got lost in the shuffle.

    I want the 73 Colt Rory Calhoun carried in The Texan. It had a deeper more powerful sound than every other gun in the show.
