Laws rocket Dirty Harry used to blow up the guy had the mayor hostage on the tower.. or the harpoon gun in another of the dirty harry movies.

Gun from the good the bad and the ugly blondy used...

But the best and baddest is the 88 magnum, it shoots thru schools...

My favorite real weapon would probably be Tony Montana's "little friend" (Scarface)

but the cooler ones

The M41A1 pulse rifle, it looks cool and fires the standard US M309 10 x 24 Case-less Light Armor Piercing Explosive Tipped round, and has an under barrel 30mm grenade launcher.

And the "Noisy Cricket" from Men in Black

very interesting two barreled gun I think she makes herself in the superb movie Sympathy for Lady Vengeance



The hammer from Oldboy (the prequel to the above movie)

IF, . . . I had the money to buy one

AND IF, . . . I could afford the maintenance

AND IF, . . . I could get all the fed / legal stuff taken care of

AND IF, . . . I could make a shoulder holster for it,..........

I'd carry an M-60 under my left arm. Yeah, . . . they had their problems, . . . idiosyncracies, . . . but , . . . well, . . . it'd still be my choice.

Mine would have to be the mysterious Glock 7 mentioned in Die Hard 2.

I wanna see what this rare gem actually looks like (in theory of course)...

Not a movie, but I was watching Arrow on the CW and Deadshot had some kind of full auto pistol as a wrist bracelet. Seems hard to aim but he had superBG skills. Wonder what kind of hardware they made that out of.

Silly point, Deadshot used a 7.62 and Arrow mused that meant Russians. Why? Wasn't an AK type platform. Didn't say 7.62 by 54 or a 308.

The Nock Volley Gun carried by Richard Widmark in The Alamo. I have actually seen one, in the Clarke House on Princeton Battlefield.

I saw that episode also, thought the same thing. I'm almost positive that Deadshot's rifle in the final encounter was an M1A Scout. More Hollywood "Ooops" I guess

Not a movie, but it was Burn Notice that inspired me to buy my P228. Granted, mine has a rail, but it's German and I love it anyways

Same here, also Harper's seven-barreled gun in the Sharpe's books and movies.

The AR-7 super sniper rifles used in a variety of movies because they could have the actor assemble it just before taking that shot such as in Femme Nikita.
