    At home today nursing an infected leg from an operation and Netflix had dropped off Enemy At The Gates for me to watch - a great flick featuring everyone's favorite surplus rifle, the Mosin Nagant.

    Got me thinking - what are other great movies for us, the people of the gun?

    These are all a bit dark, but "The American" features some awesome gunsmithing scenes, "Death Sentence", and "The Punisher" (2004) have some nice hardware.

    HEAT has one of the best shootouts I've seen in any movie to date. You can tell the guys spent a lot of time training for it prior to getting it filmed (Pacino, DeNiro, Kilmer):


    Another is a foreign movie, probably not as well known, is "The Man From Nowhere". Great shoot out that ends in a knife fight to rival all others:


    Here's the training they did to prep for the shootout in HEAT:

    Way of the gun, I always liked, it's a classic gun movie. , "fast five" was also pretty cool, along with zero dark 30.

    HEAT - excellent shoot out in the streets!

    Black Hawk Down is another movie with great firefight scenes.

    Winchester 73 with James Stewart.

  10. Not that I have ever chosen a movie based on it containing a specific firearm....

    But if you wanted to, you can to to http://www.imfdb.org and search on the weapon of choice and get a list of movies it appears in and often which actor/character used it.

    'Last Man Standing' with Bruce Willis is the best 1911 movie of all time!

    Johnny Dollar's recommendations are all good and will keep you busy for quite a while. I'll add Shane and The Narrow Margin. Other good ones (don't remember if Johnny mentioned them) are True Grit and Rio Bravo (both with John Wayne). For shooting, Unforgiven is good.
