Yesterday I saw the flick "No Country For Old Men." I got a chuckle from the ticket seller when I claimed my senior discount, but that's beside the point.
The movie was pretty good, up to a point, with lots of gun-play and action. It also had a plot, until the ending which I found kind of confusing.
Anyway, the lead bad guy, Anton Chigurh (played by Javier Bardem), was armed with a couple of interesting weapons. The first was a pneumatic device used in slaughtering cattle, which drives a piston into the beast's brain causing instant death. He applied it with great success against both humans and door locks.
He was also armed with a shortened pump shotgun, I think an 870, affixed with a suppressor. I've never before considered a "silenced" shotgun. Does anyone know if that's actually do-able?
