    I recently looked up a movie that I have quite enjoyed in the past. I thought I would share it in case there were those here who had never watched it. It is the story of a man and his guns.
    "The Last Man Standing". Here are some excerpts:

    What is your favorite "man with guns" movie?

    Neat guns, they never run out of bullets.

    In "Face Off", Nicholas wore a pair of matching guns behind his back. Travolta was in the movie as well. It is not one of my favorite movies, but it's the only one, I could remember, with an actor carrying a pair of matching guns.

    I sure there must be some Westerns with cowboys wearing matching guns, but I can't think of one right now. Ops, I take that back. Kostner in "Silverado".

    BTW, in "Last Man Standing", I believe the guns were Browning Hi Power 9s, not 1911s.

    Here's what comes to mind. A pair of Colt 1911's in Punisher.

    In Last Man Standing with Bruce Willis his character carries Colt 45 Autos.
    There is a pretty cool scene where he is loading a bunch of spare magazines at the table in his hotel room.

    Most movies are terrible misrepresentations of firearms, technique, tactics and gun owners. Infinite repeaters, vicious misanthropes, absurd effects all feed into the horrible myths that Antis use against us with an ignorant public that is fed a constant diet of lies.

    The Quick and the Dead, which had a lot of big name stars had some two gun men.

    Ace, one of the gunmen hired to kill Gene Hackman's character had matching SAAs. He brags about being just as good with either hand.

    Gene Hackman's character (can't think of his name) has matched SAAs.

    I believe the Kid (played by Leo Dicaprio) had matched SAAs as well.

    Very unrealistic movie, but entertaining.

    I really like the movie 'Hitman' and Timothy Olyphant's character number 47. He used a great set of stainless Para Ordnance 1911 style 9mms with suppressors.

    While I like "The last Man Standing" I'll have to vote for Jake in "Silverado".
    Realistic..? No, but it is an entertaining movie.

    Going back to my favorite movies here...not sure which is actually my favorite.
    Young Guns where Estevez is shooting Colt Thunderers
    Boondocks Saints where they regularly "dual wield" more modern guns, especially the scene where they are in a gunfight with their father who is wearing a multitude of matched pairs, or the scene where they drop through the ceiling tangled up in rope and just kinda spin around each unloading a pair of...Beretta 92fs?...into a room full of guys.

    Denzel Washington in "Training Day". He was mean with them.

    The Matrix

    Pair of Beretta 84s (Trinity)

    2 Pairs of Beretta 92s
    Pair of MP5Ks
    Pair of Skorpions (Neo, at the same time)

    Also, the compensated HKs on Tomb Raider

    Both movies had issues, but the gun pairs are the focus of this thread, right? And if we are strictly with 1911's, then Thomas Jane's 1911's in The Punisher get my vote.

    Not 1911s, but in The Mummy Brenden Frasier's character has a matched pair of Chamelot-Delvigne French Ordinance revolvers.

    And there are some 1911s in the movie too!

    Although in The Mummy Returns Brenden Frasier carries dual 1911s!

    Actually in The Mummy he carried both the revolvers and 1911s. When he empties the revolvers in the first fight at Hamunaptra he switches to the 1911s.

    Hapless Wilber in The Maltese Falcon had a 1911 in both pockets of an overcoat.
    He probably didn't figure on doing any running. :D
    Diverging from the pairs theme, my favorite movie re guns was Outlaw Josie Wales. I guess had pairs, just not matched.

    I was also going to mention the compensated 1911's from the Punisher.

    I am an old man now, but Roy Rogers and the Lone Ranger are the first two that come to mind.

    Not my favorite, but it's a dual-wielder not yet mentioned... Antonio Banderas in Desperado with dual Ruger KP90s.

    I can't say I have a definite favorite.

    Yep, Hollywood gives anitgun folks incorrect ideas about guns and shooters. But......

    This is one of my favorite movies, and favorite gun scenes in a movie. He fires more than twelve shots I believe, but considering he is shooting at point blank range, and that's one of the few ways you could actually shoot two guns at once accurately, I think it's one of the more accurate depictions.

    Dan Akyroyd assassination using two S&W 629 Percormance Center 44 mags.

    The Lone Ranger rarely if ever used two guns at the same time. For him the second gun was a backup more than anything.

    Been thinking awhile. Wild Bill Hickok was known to carry two Colt 1851 navy revolvers to great affect and no Hollywood involved.
    I can say that I was taught a New York reload long ago by a NYPD officer. I am in agreement that actors who shoot akimbo leave me skeptical. However a pair of jframes and a bit of practice in shooting and transfer of firearms is never a bad idea for a point shooter.
