The Movie "Last Man Standing" with Bruce Willis, 1920's border town tex/mex shootout.

What guns did he use??? There was lotsa revolvers and Tommy's, shotguns. But he (Bruce) had what looked like 45acp. Any idea what they were???

EXCELLENT movie by the way!!

They look like Springfields almost, grips are hard to tell. Didnt know they made them like that back in the 20's

They were Colt 1911s or a facsimile.
No way to tell really what modern manufacturer made them unless there was a close up of the makers mark somewhere in the film, which would be bad film making.
Or if there are some subtle differences that some one like Tuner would be able to pick up on

Bruce Willis had special rocket powered ammo that could pick up and propel bad guys backwards to fly through doors.

Well, when you shoot someone with one .45, they just drop. But you shoot 'em with a few dozen, well...

Gotta love hollywood magazines. Has anyone done a slowmo count with the movie? I don't have the DVD (really need to pick it up), or I'd probably have already done it.

Has anyone else seen the other two films?

One of my favorite Tough Guy movies.

Always assumed they were Colt .45's but...?

At that time that movie was supposed to take place, there were no other 1911 manufacturers but Colt. I love the scene where he's loading mags and has like 50 of them stacked on the table. :)

Can anybody ID the revolvers used?

Bruce had the highly desirable 1,000 round clips as well.

Yep, 1911s and in that time period they had to be Colts. Hell I thought they were only 100 rd magazines. Anyway I liked the movie well enough to buy it. (on sale cheap)!:eek:

I liked the movie a lot better when it was "Fistful of Dollars" and directed by Sergio Leone.

I swear Bruce shot more than 7 or 8 rounds from those 1911s before running out...
Like the final shootout in The Sons of Katie Elder. John Wayne fires his 6 shooter 12 or 13 times, you never see him reload.

Yes?......



It would still defy the laws of physics. Having shot game with 45 auto's, I'm a bit underwhelmed with the effect of RN loads. They get the job done, but not in a spectacular fashion.

Yojimbo is still the best, but a Fist Full of Dollars comes in close second.
I still haven't finished Last Man Standing.

Did I give away the secret? :uhoh:

By the way, about Shinichi no Samurai and The Magnificent Seven.
Can anyone decide between the two? Both were completely awesome movies, but I think I'm leaning towards the latter.

Well, when you shoot someone with one .45, they just drop. But you shoot 'em with a few dozen, well...I can't recall who wrote the article, but I recall reading about an LE shooting where two cops both carrying .44 special revolvers loaded to the very low end of .44Mag performance responded to a man with a gun call. The suspect came out of the building and confronted the two cops. When he reached for the gun, they both emptied their guns hitting him 11 times in the space of a few seconds. All hits were COM. He fell TOWARD the direction the shots came from...

Same here. I looked at the cover and saw Christopher Walken with a Tommy Gun and I am thinkin...THIS IS GOTTA BE GOOD!!!

He is such a good BAD guy...Love the TALK in the Movie.

And ya he wasnt loading hollowpoints but they were 10 round mags cuz I counted as he loaded one. Did Colt 1911's not have 10 rd mags back then? Or Bullets that blew a man 10 yards through windows???? :D

Yes, and the only questionable scene is near the end when he goes into one of the houses, and it appears that he may have fired 16 rounds uninterupted. For that to be possible with standard 7 round magazines, he would have had to have just completed a tactical reload, and then shot to slide lock.

Every other scene in the movie, there is a perceptable pause every 7 shots or less.

Bruce had the highly desirable 1,000 round clips as well. Not if you watch and count. People love to bitch about Hollywood magazines, but this movie is actually pretty good about reloading. Sadly, the Movie's effects of getting hit with .45ACP is pure Hollywood.

"It'll hurt if I do."
