    I might get boooed out of the thread.....

    but I am not impresses with Arnold, or Sly or any of them. Give me Dirty Harry (Clint Eastwood) and his "most powerful handgun in the world" any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Chuck Norris, and whatever he carries at the moment.

    All other Hollyweird tough guys are wussy boys next to Chuck.:D

    Clint Eastwood, no matter what he is packing. Heck, he looks 80 years old in Gran Torino, and he's still awesome.

    Clint Eastwood could make Chuck Norris cry for his mommy just by squinting at him.

    It's a tie!!

    Dead even for first place: Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry. John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn.

    Third place: Robert Duvall as Boss in "Open Range."

    Close fourth: George C. Scott as Patton.

    I don't buy into the Chuck Norris mystique.

    ETA--There are no "tough" handguns. The human brain is the only weapon. Mindset, skillset, THEN tools.

    I see some of you kids have never heard of John Wayne?? LOL
    He's "filled his hands" with about everything out there.


    Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes in to us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands and hopes we've learnt something from yesterday.- John Wayne

    Yep. Dirt Harry was the Alpha and the Omega.

    High Plains Drifter is a close second. And first place for meanest guy with a bullwhip.

    I recently saw Faster and liked the fact he carried a Ruger Alaskan in .454.

    Fakes, all fakes.

    The toughest was Audie Murphy, both in the movies and real life.
    Fast draw teacher Arvo Ojahla said that Murphy was the fastest draw of them all, AND he could do the same with live ammo.
    He and other experts said that Murphy had a frightening skill with guns.

    But.... some of my favorite Hollywood tough guys:

    John Wayne? Sure, I second that, for second place. But for numero uno, one only has to look to the Lone Ranger. Clearly the coolest of the cool. :neener:

    My vote would have to be Dirty Harry. Not the real world, with no reports or justification, just shoot the next one. Have always been told in the original they used a .41 mag, as they could not get a .44. Any truth to that? Do your homework. Ain't much difference looking down a .41 or a .44.

    Bah, John Wayne was a prima donna. He wore a girdle when shooting True Grit for God's sakes. The toughest three fictional gunslingers I can think of are Ed Exley, Bud White, and Jack Vincennes from L.A. Confidential.

    The toughest handgun then? The snubnose .38, the choice of every hard-boiled detective worth his 25 dollars a day plus expenses. The snub .38 and the classic pump-action riot gun see some gritty action in the movie's climactic shootout, one of the best I've ever seen on film.

    Toughest man to carry handgun - Jack Bauer on "24"...he gets beat up, tortured, exposed to radiation, loses his wife and friends, fights off a dozen terrorist hand-to-hand, does all these without sleep nor rest, etc, all within in 24 hours and still comes back for more:D Jack Bauer has a proper grip and stance as well. My past favorite heroes like Charles and Clint don't know how to grip their guns (support hand under the grip, useless to control recoil, henceforth you see a lot of guys at the range with the same grip, totally bad form:eek:)

    Toughest gun nominee: Can't remember much of it now, but didn't Bruce Willis have a Glock and fired the same Glock what seemed to be thousands of shots without a single FTF throughout the movie, Die Hard?
