    Whats yours? It could be anything from a gunfight or duel to the intro scene in Lord of War where the camera is in first person view of a traveling bullet.

    My favorite is a small gunfight in The Assassination of Jesse James. The short awkward fight in the bedroom that leaves Jesse's cousin dying on the floor. The whole scene was just so gritty and real. It puts a sick feeling in your gut it feels so real and emotional. Nowhere near as graphic or stylized as some gunfights in movies, but in my opinion its easily the best BECAUSE of its simple honesty. I would not hope to experience that situation firsthand.

    If you havent seen the movie, id highly recommend it.

    The Dirty Harry scene tops my list....

    " I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five'? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, i kind of lost track myself. But being that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well do ya, punk?"

    I guess for nostalgia mine still has to be the scene in Terminator when he's shopping at the gun shop. The clerk is handing him a shotgun, 1911, Uzi, etc. When I was a kid I thought that was the coolest thing and I couldn't wait to be able to shop like that (and I have :) just without the shooting the clerk at the end part).

    Another one is when *SPOILER* in Unforgiven Clint Eastwood shoots Gene Hackman and Gene says, 'I don't deserve this' and Clint says in a hoarse voice, 'Deserve's got nothin to do with it' and pulls the trigger.

    Not sure if I have a favorite, but The Quick and the Dead had a lot of good gun footage if you like the old west stuff, which I do.

    The intro to Grosse Point Blank always makes me smile.

    “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.”
    Then 2- 45's open up, not a bad attention grabber.

    I am fond of the scene in Red, John Malkovich with the .460 vs. The chick with the RPG.

    Kevin Costner as Wyatt, when he pulls his six shooter's and calls the whole town out coming to hang a man in his jail: " who want's want's to come up here and die with this brave man?"

    It's all fantastical, . . . but the "get Morphius out" scene in The Matrix comes to mind [even though some of the falling shell casings don't match the gun they're coming out of].

    Also the "I'm your huckleberry" duel scene near the end of Tomestone.

    One of my favorites is that scene in one of the Matrix films where Trinity and an agent are falling vertically in slow-motion after diving out a window, Trinity firing two machine pistols and the agent firing what I think is was an IMI Desert Eagle handgun.

    I'm not entirely sure if this is my all time favorite (I'm exhausted, just worked third shift), but it's up there!

    Final shootout in 'The Way of the Gun'
    if you haven't seen it you should ;)

    White Heat Cagney locks a guy in the trunk of his car then asks "how's the air in there?" after the guy response of stuff Cagney pull out a .45 and puts 5 or 6 rounds in the trunk then asks "How's the air now?" The start of the gun fight in "Open Range" when Costner asks the thug if he was the one who shot Mose "Yeah I did and I enjoyed it" to which Costner shoots him point blank between the eyes.

    I know I am forgetting some but two that pop into my head are:
    The final shootout in Shane
    The sniper team that drops in to help a downed black hawk in Black Hawk Down. That scene is just awesome to me.
