"Both were good but La Femme Nikita was better ..."
Yup. Much better.

Nikita was better because of one thing.
Luc Besson: director.
If you haven't also seen The Professional you should rent that too.

the same 280 is also available in .32 acp.
i freaked when she threw the hammerli in the water. i finally rationalized it was probably a fake that was tossed into the drink.

La Femme Nikita was also better because she used an AUG in her bathroom sniping scene...:cool:

Nikita was better but No Return was so lame that an average film like Nikita could beat it like a stepchild. :cool:
I thought Nikita bogged down in the b-o-r-i-n-g l-o-n-g part with the boyfriend. Tchecky Karyo and his 357 Magnum was the best thing about Nikita. YMMV

the 280 is an excellent competition pistol that is chambered only in match calibres: .22 short, .22 lr and .32 long (same as the K-32, not the .32 acp)

I'm sorry but a spindly Bridgette Fonda is not convincing as a rough and tumble assassin. They needed to cast someone with a little more meat on the bone than her. Linda Hamilton in T2 was very convincing because she was so in shape. Probably too ripped for the Le Femme Nakitta type role but still....
Did you ever notice how small and dainty these actresses are compared to the guns they shoot. I usually try to gage how big a actor is based off a common item like using a can of pepsi for scale. I got to shake and meet Selma Hayek once (I will never forget) and I could not believe how small she was and how big and perfect of a rack she has.:D

You are not kidding about the size and such. I talked with Demi Moore a while up in Farmington NM at a hotel we were both staying at and I never had a clue who she was. It was not till later that I found out. Small, not the perception I had of her at all.
Quite a nice person though. She was quite interested in our work and seemed to be pretty "up" on what was happening around town.

Sly is about 5 foot nothing, also.

Cant make an assumption based upon her size what size gun a woman will prefer... Took an initially anti-gun young woman about 5' tall and 100-lb shooting with my wife and myself. Started her out on .22 pistol, she got interested, and after two or three trips found she much preferred my .45 auto to the .22, .38-spl, or 9-mm! LOVE those Texas women!!:D
