My GFs dad has an 1895 guide gun 45-70. Said its quick handling, drops anything hes hunting, and kicks like a mule with heavier loads.

The thing I don't like about newer Marlins is that there side ejection port allows a scope to be added, but it makes the guns look so UGLY.

Ah, my mistake. But, still, I can't imagine trying to hold a fire a full-sized .308 M14/M1A one-handed, much less firing it. But, for the record, I'm 5'11' and 215 lbs, not 6'5" and 270 lbs, so who knows.

This might not be nearly relevant, but I sort of vowed to never use the phrase: "kicks like a mule" until I get kicked by a mule(or donkey/horse, whatever).

Well, the term is grossly over-exaggerated. If you were kicked by a mule, you could likely break a bone and be knocked down but even the 600 Nitro, the biggest bang for your buck, isn't capable of this.

And if you get kicked by a mule and are severely injured, you may never get to shoot again, so use the term while you still can!

I always was humored by the thought that when you fired a large gun, the stock would open and a spring loaded boot would launch out and KICK you, cartoon style.

Here are some of my favorite "gun movies" in NO particular order.

Escape from New York

Appleseed (the first CG version)

Open Range

Dead Bang

HEAT

The Shootist

3:10 To Yuma (the remake)

Die Hard (first one is still the best one IMHO)

Aliens

True Grit

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Hard Boiled

Quigley Down Under

Running Scared (the old one, with Billy Crystal, was funny and had some action in it)

Ronin

The Getaway (I'm one of the few people who likes both versions. LOVE the original)

I could go on and on.

Actually, Appleseed Ex Machina was better than the first one since it had more shooting action and was produced by the master of gun shooting movie, John Woo.

Oh man, I forgot to add westerns.

Quigley Down Under was great with that with pro-gun guy Tom Selleck in the lead, although the writers must have been pretty big rocking chair commandos, since whenever someone is hit by a .45-110 round from the Sharps, he is launched through the air. I have to add to that page, I missed some stuff (it was the first page I ever made with screencaps BTW).

True Grit is one of my all time favorite films, although Kim Darby's acting sucks.

Open Range was a realistic western except for the 16 shot revolvers and the people being thrown around. I liked it but this stood out a bit.

The Shootist was a good film, although it wasn't neccessarily realistic. It has a lot of the the movie themes present that fill the spot where realism goes.

The new 3:10 to Yuma was an excellent film, mainly because Thell Reed taught the firearms training. It was also very authentic, although some editing problems gave a double barreled shotgun the ability to fire three rounds.

Of all gun movies, two stand out as the best, and that is Heat and Collateral. Michael Mann is an excellent director and his favoring of weapons training makes the movie much better. I think Tom Cruise handled firearms in Collateral better than any actor I've seen in previous films.

I just got Quigley Down Under back from someone who I let borrow it, so I might add some caps on Friday (I missed the bootpistol used at the end). And some good Sharps images couldn't hurt.
