    Ok, who are the coolest looking actor and actress with a gun? One vote for each. Never mind the proper gun handling, just rating the "cool" factor.

    I would have to say Angelina Jolie and Bruce Willis (ok, so maybe it's Michael Gross).

    Well since I just walked into the room, I guess I will reply...

    Bruce Campbell ("Good...bad...I'm the one with the gun!", "This is my boomstick!")

    Geena Davis (The Long Kiss Goodnight)

    Actor: John Wayne in the final scene of True Grit. "Fill your hand!" Winchester & Colt SAA

    Actress: Kathleen Turner in the "sugar mill" scene in Undercover Blues. BAM! BAM! (two bad guys wielding flame throwers bite the dust). Cop: "Jeez! Where are you FROM?!?!?" Turner: "North Adams, Massachusetts. Why?" Ruger P90.

    Honorable Mention: Jamie Lee Curtis with an Uzi in True Lies. Yeah, she dropped the weapon down the stairs, but she looked good doing it. :)

    Val Kilmer in Tombstone. Tough choice for me when it comes to the ladies. Mina Sorvino or Lucy Liu.

    Well, Clint Eastwood seems to tote them around rather naturally. Not sure if he would win the 'coolest' award. For the sheer cool factor, and I'm no fan of his acting (dis)abilities, might go to Keneau Reeves in The Matrix.

    For the women, Angelina comes to mind as does Famke Janssen in Golden Eye.

    Several of the above are right up there for me too. I'd elabrate on Dirty Harry--the "do ya feel lucky, punk. Well do ya?" was pretty cool, including the footage right before where he's choking down his sandwich/hot dog, firing into the perp's windshield. The later long shot across the football field was iffy but cool. (But that .458 Win. rifle choice was from another planet.) Although I tend to favor autos in real life revolvers can be much more tactile and interesting in films. Well, what can you do with a Glock on screen that lends itself to visual or auditory interest? Guess that's why autos have to go clickety-click and have their slides racked all the time. They look cool--arguably--but are uncinematic. There seem to be more revolvers coming back to movies, especially those big-bore short barreled models from S&W. Very nasty looking and camera-friendly. One new nomination here: Taxi Driver. Powerful and not gun-stupid.

    Here, here

    I am going to have second the nomination for Bruce Cambell. 'Buy Smart! Buy S-mart!'

    There is no funk I can be in that Army of Darkness won't bring me out of.

    Women? I'm not sure about cool, but Mira Sorvino, circa Replacement Killers.

    Honorable mention goes to Chow Yun-Fat in Replacement Killers. forget tactical reloads, he just draws another gun!

    If you thought The Replacement Killers was cool, go check out some of Chow Yun Fat's Chinese-language films. There's a scene in Hard Boiled where he slides down a rope with a MP5 in one hand and mows down half the bad guys before he hits the ground. He then proceeds to lay some serious smack-down with a rather large revolver (can't recall model/caliber). Good stuff there.

    As for the ladies... I vote Famke Janssen as well.

    Male: Clint Eastwood. Pretty much anything he's in, but I'm especially partial to The Outlaw Josey Wales. :cool:

    Female: Sigourney Weaver rocked in Aliens: "Get away from her, you (word that rhymes with 'itch'!)" She's an anti in real life, though - bleh. :banghead:
