Has a movie ever inspired you to buy a certain firearm?

How about a picture thread on this one!

Have you ever fallen in love with a firearm in a movie that made you go out and buy it? Give some examples.

I bought a HK USP 45 once after seeing it used in Collateral by Tom Cruise, it was used by former law enforcement and beat up pretty badly. I couldn't handle seeing the shape it was in so I traded it oddly enough for a Sig 250 also used by Cruise in Night and Day. Ended up trading that too. No more Tom Cruise endorsed firearms.

Dirty Harry created a run on the .44 magnum.

X-Files inspired me to buy my first Glock.

John Wayne movies made me always want a large loop lever gun, but I have only owned the regular style to date.

I remember Mel Gibson and Lethal Weapon really making the Beretta 9's fly off the shelves.
