My favorite scene in the movie.
I think his first movie was "thief" . He has done it right from the start
Most of the firearms training for "HEAT" took place at the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department's range at their multiple ranges at Castic, under the supervision of the LASD Firearms Instructors.
Ok scifi dork alert
I always thought Amanda Tapping looked pretty well versed and provided great contrast to Richard Dean Anderson's piss poor handling of firearms.
McNabb is actually an alias, he has also done consulting work under other names.
I can't remember which movie, but Tom Selleck is coaching one of his officers and he says something about concentrating on the front sight. The officer asks him how he got so good and I believe the answer was essentially, "Practice."
In the scene where he puts a bullet through the hole of a thrown washer, they didn't fake it, but brought in Herb Parsons to make the actual shot.
I also like the way he foils Dan Duryea's quick draw in the saloon and the final shoot out in the boulders.
He looked pretty convincing. I wonder where he learned to handle guns?
On the job training?
A real American Hero, for sure.
Now where are the clips of Jerry Lewis and Sammy, two of the fastest in Hollywood?
"Soon the event spread to Hollywood celebrities and western movie stars. Surprisingly, the fastest guns in Hollywood in the early 60's were 1st = Jerry Lewis, 2nd = Sammy Davis Jr. and 3rd = Dean Martin. Dean and Sammy both did some western films, while Jerry didn't really use guns on camera. The 1960s National Fast Draw Championships were held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada and were sponsored by Colt firearms and the Sahara Hotel and Casino."
Not because he is calm and collected,
but because he appears nervous and scared.
And he summons the courage to carry on with the fight.
One scene that comes to mind is the final shoot out scene in
The Sand Pebbles.
yep that's it
He was especially good in The Getaway.
I think the Gun handling in 24 is excellent. I also thought Blackhawk Down was very impressive for a movie.
My gun trainer was a consultant for "Heat". He's a veteran SWAT Entry Team leader with approx. 5000 high-risk entries to his career. He knows what he's doing.
That is a lot! Even at one a week with two weeks per year for vacations, 5,000 high-risk entries is about a hundred years of experience.
What else does this guy do?
