    I have gotten interested in watching westerns on TV recently. I would be interested to get responses: What are your favorite 3 western movies- in order. Let me list my favorites of the ones I've seen so far.

    1. Culpepper Cattle Company
    2. Rio Bravo
    3. 3:10 to Yuma

    So list your favorites- perhaps some of us will find some new ones to see.

    3. For a Few Dollars More

    And a couple of others I like . . .

    The Wild Bunch
    A Fistful of Dollars

    Keepin' it gun related:

    Even though I'm a big fan of semi-autos, military style arms and evil black rifles ... I LOVE those old school repeating rifles they use in Westerns!!!!!! They're so fun to shoot and they look like works of art. I would not feel poorly armed with a good old Winchester 94 30-30.

    Telewinz, I'll second the Fistful of Dynamite, add Josey Wales and finish with Unforgiven tied with Good the Bad and the Ugly.

    Not to many have heard of or seen Dynamite, lots of good gunplay and a neat perspective on the Mexican Revolution in the early part of the Century.

    I especially liked the 2 machinegun ambush at the bridge. Also Stiegers rant on revolutions.

    • 1) Unforgiven
      2) Rio Bravo
      3) The Searchers
    For the gun-related content, I like their holster setups, particularly John Wayne's. Also in these John Wayne films, his primary was a carbine with his pistol for backup.

    The Wild Bunch

    Stealing a dozen crates of rifles....only to discover a water cooled browning .30

    Plus a few hundred Mexican mausers at the end.


    Unforgiven

    Not too heavy on gunplay, but more realistic in depiction


    Not sure about number 3.
    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly?

    It was kind of dumb, but I liked The Quick and the Dead. Tombstone was pretty cool too.

    My favorite was Outlaw josy Wales though. The sharps shooting at the river was cool, had to love the gatling guns, but it's the Colt Navy sidearm that got really got me.

    Cowboy shooting is big fun, nothing like pulling a Colt or levering a Winchester! Getting to wear the hat is gravy. :D

    1. The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly.

    (I love where Tuco is trying to assemble a pistol from various parts and is turning the cylinders while holding them to his ear. Also where Blondie fires his pistol from underwater in the bathtub.)

    2. Open Range (yeah, I know its recent)

    3. True Grit (brings back memories of watching it with my Pop as a kid).

    Huh, just so happens I was watching Seven Samurai, the predecessor to the Magnificent Seven, which was what I was thinking about watching after but I'll do it tomorrow. Love both.

    Good, Bad and Ugly

    After that I'm planning on watching Yojimbo and Fistful of Dollars. Again, love both.

    And finally, My Name is Nobody.

    There are two potentially great films coming out this Christmas. One is a western: The Alamo.

    The other is a Civil War-era flick: Cold Mountain. In the novel, the main character (Inman) carried a Lemat revolver. Hopefully that'll be in the film.

    That was a helluva book. I'm really looking forward to the movie.
