I read a long time ago in some gun mag that Steven Seagal likes his .45's. Apparently, he has some 1911's and S&W's. What other actors are into guns?

Hollywood all like guns. They use them in their movies, just walk down the aisle at the video store. All of Hollywood owns them and are surrounded by men with guns.

Steven Seagal is an actor? I thought he was a CIA operative contracted for "wet work." That's what he claimed anyway. In any case, based on what I have seen him do in movies, he is certainly not an actor.

I recently saw an interview with him in which he was talking about how anti gun he "USED" to be and how he is now an NRA member and really enjoys shooting. Now whether or not this was just some kind of bid for publicity for Tremors the series I do not know but I thought it worth mentioning.

Mel Torme, the deceased singer and song writer, was supposedly an avid collector of historical handguns, especially ones used in the Old West.

Joe Demko
January 12, 2004, 03:37 PM
Yes, that's right. Torme did have an extensive collection of vintage revolvers. Many of them came from the old movie studio prop collections. Since he died, one supposes that the collection has likely been broken up and auctioned off.

John Milius, Director / Producer has a huge firearms collection, a major military and arms buff.

Steven Spielberg of all people has many guns, and has shot in events overseas. You won't ever see him say anything favorable about guns in the USA or english-speaking press, though (or in the re-released 'E.T.' for that matter).

Kid Rock is a big gun advocate, I remember he was talking about hunting and trap shooting in a Rolling Stone article a couple years ago.

Milla Jovovich (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000170/bio) is divorced from Luc Besson, the director that made Fifth Element. It seems that Milla has a penchant for falling in love with directors. She's engaged to Paul W.S. Anderson, the director for Resident Evil I, and upcoming, Resident Evil II.

I heard that Ted Nugent has been taking other rocker deer hunting recently, like Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith.

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry are pro-gun, to put it mildly!

I just picked up Nugent's "Guns, God, and Rock and Roll" book using a gift certificate my brother got me for Christmas. There was a short piece in there where 'ole Ted recounts a time when Joe and Steven came over for some shooting and hunting.

Rather than paraphrase, I'll just quote directly. I got the book around here somewhere. Ahh, here it is. Bookmarked with a 4.5" fixed blade knife -- it's only proper.

Context: Ted's writing about drug use in rock and role and Aerosmiths rehabilitiatoin:

"You want to know what thrilling recreational pursuit they have discovered to destress and escape? Shooting. And I mean massive, extended, high power, even fully automatic shooting, shooting, and more shooting. The so called "Toxic Twins" have miraculously been upgraded to the "Rootin', No-More Tootin', Shootin' Ballstic Twins," and are damn proud of it. Good clean fun is a beautiful thang.

With ever-increasing collection of firepower, including concealed weapons permits and a Class 3 license in their "Life Free or Die" homestate of New Hampshrie, Steven and Joe have found true love in the marksmanship and self-defense challenge. They enjoy compact (as in small and easily concealable) 9mm handguns like the H&K P7, Kaur [NOTE: I think that's an edit mistake and should read Kahr], Walther PPK in .380, some handy .32's and 25's, plenty of new Titanium S&W snubby .38 specials, fullhouse, scoped .44 magnums, and will soon upgrade to the awesome Glock Model 20 in 10mm."

.. and Ted goes on for a while. NOTE: When Ted Nugent thinks you're a gun nut... you're a gun nut. I think Steven and Joe qualify. He goes on later about them bring full auto weapons out.

I remember reading about John Popper's guns when he took the band to AK and couldn't wait to strap on a pair of .44 mags.

Mel Torme, IIRC, was very much into Lugers.

Lou Ferigno, IIRC, often attends the SHOT show.

Still, more than a few folks mentioned are questionable as to whether their support of the 2nd extends beyond the wealthy and famous. Sean Penn coming first to mind. Remember Sharon Stone grandstanding after Columbine with her call to LAPD to come get her guns?

James Earl Jones is an avid shooter and big-time gun enthusiast. I believe that he is an NRA member and I've read on one of these forums that in his autobiography he makes his views on gun ownership pretty clear (he believes that individuals have a right to own firearms). I've heard that he shoots competitively (high power rifle?)and that he has a range in his house / on his property. I've seen him at a couple of local gun shops. One of the shop employees mentioned that he has an extensive collection of 1911-style pistols and that he frequents the shop pretty regularly. It was kind of surprising for me to walk out of the door of a gun shop, and see that the person who was holding the door for me was the voice of Darth Vader himself!

I'm not a big C&W music fan, but based on their leftie statements regarding the War last year, I'd assume that the Dixie Chicks might be excluded from "the majority of Country artists" who are pro....Kiefer Sutherland...
There was a thread here a while back regarding a spot he did after an episode of "24" for some kind of gun-safety group. Don't know if that makes him pro or anti. Personally, I'd lean into believing he's anti, except for the "pretty people". Plus, his dad is Canadian.

Spielberg & Lucas
Some of the themes to their movies are pro-gun. StarWars comes to mind for Lucas, and Spielberg has done a couple of movies which escape me now themed around Guns/Jews/WWII.

While there is some debate among the THR crowd, I think most of us believe we could get by just fine without most of our gun-control laws. It would be nice if more of the public figures who believed as such would stand up and make their positions known. As I see it, they've been unwilling, mostly in the name of PC-crap, to stand up to the anti's who are more than willing to voice their views.

January 18, 2004, 04:25 AM
i concur about find out if a celeb is one of the "guns good for me, but not for serfs" crowd (ala Brady, et al)

second in this thread i came upon something that i feel i should finally add my personal (and as always worthless to some/most) two cents on.

Dick Marcinko is THE MAN!

the problem is that HE thinks he's GOD!!!

every person that i have met that has had any contact with the man, that is not part of the Marcinlo "Cult", has been of the oppinion that if the man's ego was any bigger he'd have to rent storage to keep it in. not only that but that, contrary to the mythos Marcinko WANTS the rest of the world to beleive, the man is a DANGER to anyone around him in a combat or other life or death situation, especially if you're on HIS side!!

Wanna see what his contemporaries thought of Marcinko, take a browse though Chapter 20: "Dancing With the Devil" of SEAL! By Lt. Cmdr Michael J. Walsh.......

I won't write out the whole chapter of course just the most relevant pasage i found.

toward the end of an "interveiw" with Marcinko about join Team 6 that devolved into marcinko ranting a raving about his way or the highway etc etc.....

"by now I was getting bored with the program. there was no way i could work with this fruitcake and hope to survive the rigors of counterterrorist warfare. Dick had stopped going to war after his time in Southeast Asia. I hadn't. He'd done well on staff and in training, but I'd racked up a series of Navy Comabt Action ribbons since pulling five tours in vietnam, to include my advisory tour With Phoenix (Phoenix program, a "black ops" program that utilized Kidnapping asassination and torture to reduce adn or cripple the VC/NVA infastructure in S.Vietnam) . counterterrorist? who was kidding whom here? I'd BEEN a counterterrorist, and in some people's minds -many of whom were dead now- I was a terrorist as well. as i looked around again at the men in that room I wondered what proven ability any of those present could honestly claim in their new role"

that, plus some thing i won't bother repeating on here, sum it up quite well in more ways than one

Note: If you are on the polar opposite side of the spectum, with regard to the Marcinko issue. Then Let's, agree to disagree. My oppinion on this can't be changed without some MAJOR effort (as in prove that 10 otherwise unconnected people that have been honest with me on all other things are lying through their teeth). and if you feel the same way about your position, we'd just tick each other off and get nowhere. thank you

(sea stories, aka Bull----).

Rogue warrior was Published as fiction b/c it IS fiction, or I should say fiction with just enough "fact" mixed in that Marcinko can point back adn say "well here's proof of at least THIS part of it. so why not beleive the rest? i was THERE..."

it's Almost laughable when you get down to it.

Well, my age will be obvious here ;) , but I don't think anyone has mentioned Susan Howard and Steve Cannaly of the TV series "Dallas".

It's a 1911. Maybe a SA Mil-Spec, but I'm not sure.

While not an expert on BHPs, I do own one, and I don't think she's holding one in the picture. From my vantage, it appears there is a grip safety, which would make it more likely to be some version of a 1911.

Yep, the gun in question is definitely a 1911. I don't know if the only one who understands what I'm about to say is me, but here goes: The BHP has relief cuts in the forward part of the slide. Also, the slide stop has a half-circle shaped "cover" for the notch in the slide. The BHP trigger is a hinged trigger, whereas the 1911s is a stirrup type. The safety on a 1911 has a "plate" thingy that covers good part of the frame; a BHP's safety is simply the lever. And lastly, the grip tang on a BHP is shorter and higher.

Most importantly, though: Milla Jovovich is HOT. :D

Yep, I gotta agree with you on that with, definitly in love with Laura Prepon. Also for the list of gun friendly actors, Tom Selleck is definitly in our camp, and I beleive Aerosmith falls under the gun friendly
celebrity crowd.

I don't think it was her BF, but a co-star, John Eric something or another, who shot himself in the head with a blank, only to have the wadding penetrate his brain, such as it was.

Jon-Eric Hexum, IIRC.

I would be sorely disappointed if they weren't. :scrutiny: :confused:

I'd still like to know the answer, though.
