I was watching American History X last night and I want to get whatever handgun it was that Edward Norton's character was firing. Man, that thing had like a 25 round clip that didn't even extend past the bottom of the gun.

:p

As I recall, it looked like a Ruger P95.


Excellent movie, BTW.

It was definitely a Ruger, but I don't think it was a 95. GREAT MOVIE!!!

Yeah, the script says Sig. 45 but it looked more like a Beretta to me. Good movie though.

Are you sure you guys aren't thinking of the scene in the bathroom towards the end of the movie?
That was definately a Beretta.

In case you guys were wondering, I was just kidding about the question. I just couldn't believe how many rounds he shot through that thing in just one clip. Thought it was pretty humorous myself.

for some handguns (9mm's), there are/were 30 and 40 round clips available...

Justin: Are you POSITIVE it wasn't a Glock in the bathroom? It sure looked like it to me, I could be wrong though.

I've got the DVD.. I had downloaded it, but I lost it last time I upgraded(new 80gig HDD, it was on the old 18.5gig that took a dive). I'll have to watch it to find out what it was. I thought it was a glock, but I didn't really pay much attention.

there are actually two bathroom scenes that have guns in them. The first is where the big fat guy goes to the bathroom and he pulls out a glock and lays it on the counter. The second is where the gang member kid pulls out a gun and shoots Edward Furlongs character and he is using a beretta.

the scene in which Edward Norton is firing a gun, he is using a Ruger.

Dakotaskin, I am aware that there were 30 and 40 round clips available. All of them extened past the bottom of the gun though.

Trimation, I'm sure there's people on here who haven't seen the movie and are planning on it. Kinda rude to just ruin the movie like that :banghead:

well considering the movie has been released for the last four years, how upset could a person get at reading a spoiler?

Man he sure did get yoked for that movie.

I think he got yoked so bad because he played the part so well. I think that movie scared a lot of people because there really are people out there that are like that.

I wonder what kind of funny photoshop stuff we could do with that.... ? :evil:

When I said yoked, I was referring to how muscular he got for the part.

Yeah, when I first saw that movie I was like "HOW did Ed Norton get jacked up so quick?"

some of the sentiments expressed in American History X are similar to what many here feel, without the hate mongering and aryan nation crap.:

"Alright listen up! We need to open our eyes. There is over two millions illegal immigrants bedding down in the state tonight. The state spent three billions dollars last year on services for those people who had no right to be here in the first place. Three billion dollars. 400 millions dollars just to lock up a bunch of illegal immigrant criminals who only got in this country because the INS decided it's not worth the effort to scream for convicted felons.

Who gives a crap? Our government doesn't gave a crap. Our border policy is a joke! So is anybody surprised that at the south of the border are laughing at us, laughing at our laws. Every night thousand of these parasites stream across the border like some pinatees bodies.

Don't laugh! They're nothing funny going on here this is about your life and mine. It's about decent hard-working Americans falling into the cracks and getting the shaft because their government cares more about the constitutional rights of a bunch of people who aren't even citizens in this country.

On the statue of liberty it says: "Give me your tired, your hungry, your poor." Well, it's Americans who are tired and hungry and poor. And I say, until you take care of that, close the book. 'Cause we're losing. We're losing our rights to pursue our destiny. We're losing our freedom. So that a bunch of foreigners can come in here and exploit our country. And this isn't something thats going on far away. This isn't something thats happening places we can't do anything about it. It's happening right here, right in our neighborhood, right in that building behind you.

Arthur Mill ran this store since we were kids here. Dave worked there, Mike worked there. He went under and now some Koreans who fired theses guys and he's making a killing 'cause he's hired forty border-jumpers. I see this crap going on and I don't see anyone doing anything about it. And it pisses me off. So look around you. This isn't our neighborhood, it's a battle field. We are on a battle field tonight. Make a decision. Are we gonna stand on the sidelines quietly standing there while our country gets raped? Are we gonna get up and do something about it? You're god damn right we are. "

i'm not sure if i am entirely convinced that the above speech from the movie is racist.

Spiff, I think that's why the movie succeeds. It makes the viewer sympathize with Norton's character. He's not a mindless skinhead punk, but an intelligent, articulate, charismatic (albeit angry and misdirected), leader.

True, his actions are disgusting. His methods are horrible and frightening. But you can see how he went in that direction. I don't agree with the character, but I understand how he came to be.

Man he sure did get yoked for that movie. Yup, kinda funny- in high school he was a skinny kid too.

We went to the same high school and actually had some mutual friends (though I didn't know him at the time, actually still don't and I have no desire to). For some "interesting" Ed Norton trivia-

-he is the grandson of James Rouse (look up the name on the internet)
who (James Rouse)
-was the founder of the Rouse Company, one of the biggest real estate developers in the country (look up Rouse Company for some info)
and
-was the brains behind the biggest planned community in the country (maybe in the world)- Columbia, MD
