    "Heat" is the only one that qualifies, definitely a top 10! The others would have a hard time making the top 100 in my book!

    Cross of Iron (directed by Sam Peckinpah w/James Coburn)



    ----------------

    (Someone already posted it)

    Appaloosa

    (Someone already posted it

    -----------------------------

    Saving Private Ryan.

    (The beginning and end)
    ---------------------

    44 Minutes



    (Kind of ironic since allegedly the movie Heat inspired the two robbers/killers)

    --------------------------------

    Way Of The Gun

    https://youtu.be/6o0Co4kbRZo
    ---------------------------------

    Thief (with James Caan 1981)

    I'll go out on a limb. How about the parking lot scene in Fargo where Steve Bescemi gets shot in the face. Kind of messed up but hilarious in twisted way.

    Mauser Lover, a slight correction here. In the teevee series Gunsmoke, Matt Dillon is not a sheriff. Matt Dillon is a U.S. Marshal.

    Hi...
    One of my favorites is the final scene in Lawman with Burt Lancaster facing John Beck, et al.

    Another great movie gunfight is the bar scene shootout in Inglorious Basterds. The buildup is great and then almost everybody gets killed in about 3 seconds.

    Oops. You might say its been a while. :)

    I'm still putting it in the top ten for its simplicity and corniness. Less so than my other picks, but I like things that have a dramatic buildup then release all tension almost instantly... Like shaggy dog jokes! Have you heard the cookie joke!?

    Saving Private Ryan and Lone Survivor have some good ones and fairly realistic for what they are.

    I am surprised no one mentioned any of the great shoot outs from "Extreme Prejudice" with Nick Nolte, or Jeremiah Johnsons revenge attack on the Crows who killed his family.\
    The final shoot out in "Unforgiven " was the tensest I can ever think of.....

    Lots of good movies mentioned already. I was just watching The Kingdom and that fire fight towards the end ranks up there.

    Maybe not "top ten" ... but I've always liked the river boat shoot-out in the first 20 minutes or so of "The Mummy" with Brendan Frasier

    I watched "Hacksaw Ridge" the other day. It is intense - not for the weak-hearted. Lots of shoot 'em up.

    Haven't seen it mentioned yet but the entire ~15 minute gunfight/car chase/gunfight at the end of The Kingdom. Notable for the two main characters running out of ammo several times and using 3 different weapons each.

    Here's part 1
