Great gun movie lines

Okay, gotta ask!!

What are some of the best firearms-related lines from a movie?

Unforgiven
Little Bill: "I can't believe you shot an UNARMED man!!"
William Munny: "Then he should have armed himself."


Tombstone
Billy Clanton: "You're so drunk, you can't hit nothin'. In fact, you're probably seeing double."
Doc Holliday: "I got two guns -- one for each of ya."

Tombstone
Johnny Ringo: "Welll... I didn't think you had it in ya." (thinking it was Wyatt Earp)
Doc Holliday: "I'm your huckleberry."

The Magnificent Seven
(after Britt shoots a fleeing bandit from his horse)
Chico: "Ah, that's the greatest shot I ever seen!"
Britt: "The worst! I was aiming at the horse."

From the movie "Kuffs":

Kuffs: I'm looking for a really big gun that holds a lot of bullets.
LGS: God bless you, young man.
Kuffs: I always wanted a gun...
LGS: Is this what you had in mind? It's a 9mm Beretta. 15 in the clip, 1 in the pipe.
Kuffs: Got anything that holds more?
LGS: No.
Kuffs: I'll take two.

Clint's famous line from the original "Dirty Harry" movie:

"Ah ah, I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

Nikita: at the firing range

Perplexed range officer looking at decimated target:
"Vous avez deja tirée?"
Nonchalant Nikita:
"Oui, mais jamais sur du carton"

Rough translation:
"You've shot before ?!"
"Yeah, but never at paper..."

I like that film...

I wanna introduce you to a personal friend of mine. This is an M41A pulse rifle. Ten millimeter with over-and-under thirty millimeter pump action grenade launcher.

I like to keep this handy... for close encounters.

From "El Diablo" (a made for TV western on HBO, quite funny if you can find a way to see it):

Billy Ray Smith (Anthony Edwards): "You just shot that man in the back!"
Van Leek (Louis Gossett Jr.): "His back was to me."

From the Outlaw Josie Wales.

Josie Wales : Seems like whenever I get to liking someone, they ain't around for long.

Chief Dan George: I notice when you get to disliking someone, they ain't around for long neither.

Voila! The ZF-1. It's light. Handle's adjustable for easy carrying, good for righties and lefties. Breaks down into four parts, undetectable by x-ray, ideal for quick, discreet interventions. A word on firepower. Titanium recharger, three thousand round clip with bursts of three to three hundred, and with the Replay button - another Zorg invention - it's even easier.
