What movie scenes for an IDPA stage?

The well has been nearly running dry for IDPA scenarios lately. I was trying to think of movie scenes that would translate into IDPA stages. The first and most obvious one is the "Yo Hommie" scene from Collateral. The only other one that comes to mind, off the top of my head is the scene from "A Few Dollars More" where Clint turns and drops three BG's with one round each. I really want to do the Die Hard scene with the pistol taped to the shooters back!:eek: I'm sure that would go over like a fart in church.

Do you fellas have any suggestions? I was trying to come up with three or four that I could run as one stage with 3-4 separate strings within the stage. Thanks for the help.




Mods: Feel free to move this. I though it would get a little more traffic over here.

Can't think of any specific movies to cite as an example, but I've always thought the classic "shoot-out in the stairwell" would be a fun stage. That said, I see no way to set it up SAFELY at all. The mere fact that the stage would involve multiple turns would mean that there are essentially no areas that would remain unswept. The possibility of a ricochet would be high too. Plus spent brass would be a trip/slip hazard.

It'd still be fun!

Do the "Yo Hommie" scene. Attach a pvc "arm" covered with foam pipe insulation and duct tape for the shooter to strike on the 1st target, 2nd target right next to it.

Should be able to do it safely, they can all practice 1st, make sure the other arm isn't in the way. If they palm the arm then either retract it, then shoot, or keep the palm on the pvc arm it will be out of the way.

Maybe stiking and shooting is too risque for IDPA (beats me, no place close for me to go), but I've been doing it safely for years.

I guess having them palm strike the arm, then do a normal draw (off side arm back to an index on chest or navel) would be best and safest. Engage #1 strong side hand only, #2 2 hands 2 body, 1 head (if I remember the scene correctly).

The advantage of this scene is it is simple, different from what most people do and the field of fire is pretty tight....maybe only 45 deg or less.
