    There is a Christmas movie out called Fatman starring Mel Gibson as Santa aka Fatman.
    I haven't seen it, but I've seen the trailer -


    As far as I can tell it is a non traditional Christmas story about a rotten kid who gets a lump of coal for Christmas and hires an assassin to take out Santa.

    The part that makes me think I can't resist checking it out, is that at 1:43 in the trailer linked above you can clearly see Santa holding a Colt Walker with caps on the nipples and everything ready to take on the bad guy.

    A C&B revolver in a mainstream movie might just get a few more folks hooked on the Black Powder thing.

    Hmmm... Though I love a Walker I’m thinking this went a bit too far down a different game trail for me.

    Well of course Santa as a Mel Gibson hitman has a certain dark humor. Perfect for 2020...

    I was kind of thinking the same thing, it's 2020, so why not? Everything else is bizarre and screwy.
    Besides, no one can really judge you since everything is getting locked down and we are being urged to social distance.

    I MUST see this film...

    Santa in addition to the Walker also has a 1911A1, and both are some of my favorite handguns.

    Santa Claus as an "operator"... LOVE IT

    Wow, the ultimate "bad a&&" Santa...
    This might be a better Christmas movie than "Die Hard" . o_O

    We watched Fatman the other night and I found it entertaining, and the less than a minute scene with the Walker was fine enough but I wished the Walter had more than a cameo appearance.
    Santa did refer to the Walker by name, so that's something.
    I'll bet there are folks Googling "Walker" out there that would never have thought of it.
    Here is a link to a decent write up and where you can see the flick -

    I think I'll skip it, not my cup of milk. I'm not surprised Santa carries a BP revolver though, if you're naughty he'll roll some coal out on your sorry butt. Be good boys & girls.

    So I downloaded it.
    So there is some rather subtle symbolic stuff going on..., conservative messaging; LOVE IT.
    NOT so overpowering that you'd say "GEESH Enough Already, I GET IT!"
