    The Winchester lever action 12 ga that you must cycle one handed and shoot back while speeding on a bike. That's one :)

    Like it or not, the DE has made a B movie career of its own... Can you imagine a real cop hauling dat thang? 2...

    The PPK. One (unaimed) shot, one kill hehe. 3...

    Not sure about iconic but it merits an honorable mentioning... The biggest shotgun I remember in a movie. The 8 ga in True Grit. That's 4...

    The Mosin of Shtalingrad. 5...

    The Winchester lever rifle, the Colt piece maker, don't forget the Browning vest pocket (killed as surely as the PPK a generation before it)... Love you all... Sob...:D

    Oh. The S&W Model 29. Just shoot me...:D

    can't believe the Winchester 1887/1901 from terminator 2 wasn't on their top 10.

    my list would also include Anton Chigruh's silenced Remington 1100 from No Country for Old Men.

    6. Pvt. Pyle's M14 in Full Metal Jacket (there are many like her)
    7. William Dafoe's M4 in Platoon (I just liked it)
    8. Clint's Walker revolvers in the Outlaw Josey Wales
    9. Mel's 9mm Berretta in Lethal Weapon (I don't care what you think of 9mm's the smiley face scene was cool!!!)
    10. And finally a take down rifle used by Gregory Peck. I don't remember the movie or what type of rifle but it was cool and I still want one! :)

    Sigourney looks good with Michael Biehn showing her how to operate the assault carbine, sure.

    I remember:

    -- Chuck Conners with his modified Winchester in The Rifleman

    -- Steve McQueen's sawed off Winchester in Wanted Dead Or Alive

    -- Davy Crockett's .32 percussion rifle at the Alamo

    -- Eastwood's Colt Navy in the spaghetti westerns

    -- and of course Eastwood's Model 29 loaded with 44 special ammo in the Dirty Harry flicks.

    When I myself finally became a rifleman, I didn't want no teenaged queen, I just wanted an M-14. And so they gave me one. It was a fine rifle and I would never want any other kind. In fondest memories thereof, I now own my second Ruger Mini.

    And as Gian Volonte famously said in one of the spaghetti westerns, when a man with a pistol meets a man with a rifle, the man with the pistol is a dead man.
