In 48 Hours, Nolte has a .44 Mag 4" M29 taken from him by the Bad Guy. Nolte then retrieves his other gun from home, a .45 Colt Government 1911.

First off,.sorry for my horrible typing last night.

Chuck Norris did carry a 6" 629 in both Lone Wolf McQuaide and the earlier seasons of walker. I heard, not verifyied, that t was the same revolver both tikes and one he owned personally. He is a big gun collector and competative shooter for those who didnt know.

For anyone who remembers the "88 Magnum" from Johnny Dangourusly, I owe you a beer once, ONCE

Another little known or remembered gem from the 80s, City Heat. Clint Eastwood and Burt Rynolds have a wewrhouse gun fight with the gangster bad guys and keep one upping each other with guns they pull from trench coats. Its hilarious

Incorrect. Nolte was given the .45 from somebody at his precinct, and he put the gun into the same holster as his .44 had been in and it magically fit.

Blue Steel starring Jamie lee Curtis. Revolver **** in that one. Curtis has a model 10 and the killer uses a gorgeous model 29.

Homerboy is correct, the 1911 is issued at the precinct.

I'll second that Once Upon A Time in the West. Who knew Fonda could play a badass so well? Now that I think about it, Val Kilmer's Doc Holiday whiskey cup handy work in Tombstone was a good revolver scene.............

Now that's a great movie I haven't seen in a while. For some reason him pulling the old coffee grinds and filter from the trash and making coffee with it always stuck with me. Every time I look at a coffee filter it's what I think of.

My favorite revolver scene from any movie is in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly when Tuco barges into the gun shop and starts disassembling the revolvers to make his own. Then goes out back to test it out and shoots the heads clean off the targets.

Or this movie, Johnny Dangerously

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ew52P7MupN4

it's an .88 magnum...It shoots through schools

I would have to say magnum force, but Adam-12 was a great show as well.

johnny dangerously

actually in the movie the line is this:

dutchie: they made it special for him, it's a 88 magnum

vermin: it shoots through schools!

I'm gonna buck the mold here just a bit...

Die Hard

But, "Mack", you say, "surely, you must be joking. Bruce carries a Beretta. Is your concussion acting up?"

First off, don't call me surely, and secondly, my favorite moment of the whole film, is when Sergeant Al Powell kills the last AUG armed terrorist with his Model 15. Classic.

Dirty Harry is so far a head of the pack, it's pretty pointless to mention the running ups, even it's sequels.

That said, of recent times, I've developed a longing for a Colt Python after watching The Walking Dead on AMC.

For da wheelguns...

Any Dirty Harry flick particularly Magnum Force. While Clint is on the mind a nod to "Blood Work".

L.A. Confidential. A lot of well done work in that flick.

Way of the Gun. Excellent gun work throughout.

Point Blank with Lee Marvin. Folks have already mentioned a few good flicks from that time frame as well, The Killers, Bullitt.

A little earlier is the B noir flick "Gun Crazy" where the lonely and vulnerable gun collector/shooter falls hard for the trick shooter from the carnival sideshow.

The shootout at the end of Key Largo. Bogart, Bacall and Edward G. Robinson. While we're at it, pick up any of the Bogart detective flicks and you'll have fun.

Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas "Out of the Past".

The great Robert Ryan in "The Professionals"

The Untouchables

The Godfather for all that leads up to the restaurant scene where McClusky gets it.

I gotta ad the great Sterling Hayden in "The Killing" 1956.

The most recent movie for revovlers is the new "Gangster Squad".

Lot's of Military & Police revovlers, Colt revovlers, and a really cool Single Action Army.

Obviously any of the 4 Dirty Harry movies are good to check out. I liked the Super Redhawk in Faster (The Rock is best when he has few lines). Indiana Jones carries a S&W Model 1917 (as well as a Webley in the later movies). I noticed that in Looper (the movie sucks) there are a LOT of Magnum Research BFR's (Big F**king Revolver?). I liked the Pale Rider with his Colt Conversion. Oh yeah, the new Total Recall has a Rhino...

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

The scene where they're on the train when it gets attacked by bandidos, and Bogie and his pals open up their suitcases and shoot it out with their Colt .38s.

Ghost Town from 1988. First time I saw a 454 Casull on the big screen. Only 5 shots was a key to the ending.
