Larry sure has slimmed down. And they stuck poor Chen in the background.

Does anybody want to cap the guns they are showing in these videos and put them up? We'll never get a chance to see the exact guns up close

I've learned a lot about ISS' guns over the years, but Larry definitely learned some stuff that I hadn't heard before. Interesting tidbits:

- ISS' armorers are a bit frustrated that the Colt .38 machine pistol from "Public Enemies" didn't get more screen time, given the effort that went into finding a historically accurate gun and doing the mods.

- The S&W 4506s from "Training Day" (used by Denzel Washington) are the same ones later used in "The Shield" (used by Michael Chiklis).

- There are only two AA-12s in all of Hollywood, and ISS owns both. (Read: Every film/TV appearance of the AA-12 that we've documented on IMFDB - from "The Expendables" to "Breaking Bad" - is one of the same two guns.)

- The 1911 from "Sons of Anarchy" is a Springfield Bureau Model slide on a frame from another Springfield 1911. (We've had it down - incorrectly - as a Springfield Custom Professional 1911-A1 for many years now.)

- The Mark 18 Mod 0 from "American Sniper" was built on an XM16E1 lower receiver from a batch of AR lowers that is so old that ISS is now taking them out of rental circulation (which Larry Vickers says will "haunt" him).

To add to the trivia about the MK 18 used in American Sniper, they actually put correct PEQ between scenes to show the progression of time from the PEQ-2 to the PEQ-15 by the end of the movie
