Default Great Movie / T.V. Firearm Scenes

1) The scene in Dirty Harry in which Clint Eastwood shoots a hijacker who has fled behind a wall on an airliner . Using a revolver captured from the other hijacker, Eastwood yells to the passengers, " Get down ! " and then fires two shots through the wall, felling the hijacker .

2) In the episode, The American Gentleman on Alfred Hitchcock Presents, a British character hand's a Colt Pocket Pistol to an American, telling him the safety is on . The American, obviously horrified, asks, " Is it loaded ? "
The British gentleman answers with a question, " Well, it wouldn't be much use unloaded, now would it ? " .

I always liked this one from True grit


Goudy: Now is it not true that you sprang up on old man Wharton and his two sons with a deadly, six shot revolver in your hand?
Rooster Cogburn: I always try to be ready.
Goudy: Was this revolver loaded and cocked?
Rooster Cogburn: Well, a gun that's unloaded and cocked ain't good for nothin'.

As much as I dislike Don Johnson, the movie Dead Bang was good for the protrayal of the use of a good revolver and speed loaders

Offhand, two of my favorites:

The Matrix: The lobby scene where Trinity and Neo shoot their way

into a high security building.

The Outlaw Josey Wales: When Josey pulls a Road-Agent-Switch with

the two Dragoons at the general store where he rescues the squaw,

Little Moonlight.

'Quigley Down Under' Quigley shooting a pail dropped by a rider.

The end of Bad Boys where the criminal pulls out a COP 4 barrel and Will Smith unloads an entire magazine into his chest.

The end of Open Range when they ask the hired gun if he shot the boy. His reply "yes, and I enjoyed it too!" Then Kevin Costner shoots him between the eyes! Justice at its best.

A few Saving Private Ryan scenes to mention.
1. The entire D-Day scene. It's just so gritty and real looking.
2. The scene where they take a break and someone knocks over a piece of wood and it knocks down the wall revealing a German squad also taking a break. Then the slaughter that ensues.
3. Jackson's duel with the German sniper.
4. The final battle. Also because it's so gritty. Jackson sniping (even though the crosshair don't match up with the rounds destination and he shoots too many times, 10 I think, for his Springfield), Miller shooting the Tiger with his M1911, Upham redeemed himself by shooting the German that regrouped after being captured. The list goes on and on. Most of Full Metal Jacket is on the same train, the recruit training scenes and Hue with the sniper harassing the Marines.

The beginning of "Enemy at the Gates"- the fountain scene where

Vasily Zaitsev snipes 5 Germans with 5 shots, and meets

Commissar Danilov.

The gunfight at the beginning of "Once Upon A Time In the West".

Claudia Cardinale was a major hottie, in her time.

Just about all the gunfight scenes in "The Quick And The Dead"

with Sharon Stone, Russel Crowe, and Gene Hackman.

Not sure it counts as firearms (laser blasts), but the scene in Iron Man 3 when he calls all of the automated suits into battle!
