    The gun you saw in film or on television, and had to have, even if it wasn't all that great in reality.

    For me, season 1, Miami Vice, "Evan", greatest episode of the entire series. Undercover guy is selling MAC 10s, has three stylish mannequins suspended in a warehouse. Gives his selling spiel, and lets a pair of them rip.

    Not great guns, but still want one to this day, and that was the early 80's.

    What's yours?

    Series C, Fully Automatic .44 Automag.

    Mack Bolan. The original series 1-36. Written by Don Pendleton himself.

    Man I wanted that weapon. They don't make a series "C", but whatever... LOL

    PS - EVAN was a great episode. One of my all time favorites. Ranks up there with the episode that had the Hitman called in by the cartel and Sonny's name was on the list.

    The opening scene has this bad ass posing as some sort of Valet and when a limo pulls up, he comes down the car with a SPAS-12 and just unloads on the car. Drops the gun and pulls his rubber, surgical gloves off and walks calmly away.....

    Man, I miss that show......

    For me it wasn't television it was books. Every hero created by Mickey Spillane, from Mike Hammer to Tiger Mann, carried only 1 pistol - a GI .45

    The books are of course very dated now as they were written during the 50's but they depicted a world where you did the right thing and bad guys were gut shot and left to bleed out...

    Ooh, ooh ooh! A henchman comes up to the hitman, makes him drop the gauge, and then the hitman does the fastest draw I've ever seen, 1911 from an IWB under the shirt near the belt buckle. Accelerated pair.

    I just got a chub thinking about it.:eek:

    Damn, that's right. That is the fastest draw on film I do believe. The next closest woul! be Tom Cruise in the alleyway during Collateral.

    Damn it Benning, I have the first season on DVD and now I know what I will be doing on Sunday.....

    Great topic. As always.

    *respect*

    My one weapon that has come haunt me from entertainment is actually from the video game series Hitman. The weapon in question is a custom made AMT Hardballer Long Slide.

    It's a 1911 in 6 inch barrel platform. Several people make one, but in MY OPINION, if the Weaponsmaster on HITMAN had any balls, THIS is what he would have picked:

    I find myself wanting a "Mare's Leg" 12" model 92 Winchester like Steve McQueen had in "Wanted: Dead or Alive". Had the Mattel Model when I was a nubbin, saw the current .44 mag incarnation the other day at Chimo Guns.

    This one? Almost made me want a USP.

    Wanted a CAR-15 ever since I saw Sgt Zeke Anderson carrying one after the episode where Capt. Rusty Wallace was killed.
    Bonus points if you remember what show.......

    How many other old farts remember "Combat!"? This was in the early 1960's (and before color TV) so some of you younger folks may never have seen this classic series.

    I used to sit in front of the TV in my PJ's with my toy Thompson and shoot the Krauts with Sgt Saunders (Vic Morrow) and the squad. That series imprinted lasting "wants" for WW2 era weapons in my mind.

    I have a (Universal non-GI) M1 Carbine, and I am now in the process of ordering a M1 Garand from the CMP. I have my eye on a (semi-auto version) of the WW2 style Thompson at a local gun shop. I already have the Kar-98k Mauser that the Krauts used.

    A bit later in Ancient History, Dirty Harry certainly influenced me to buy a S&W 44 Magnum, although I bought a 6" 629 (Stainless). In the same vein, a buddy's Dad had a .44 AutoMag (Clint Eastwood used the .44 AutoMag in the 4th Dirty Harry Movie). This was in the mid-late 1970's. When my buddy's Dad needed to sell some of his toys due to IRS troubles in the late 1990's he remembered that I had told him I would buy that pistol if he ever wanted to sell it, so I did.

    The closest you will get is the AMT Automag long slide. They are 22mag. Not easy to find but much fun to shoot.

    I admit I own DE 50, it's not gold plated but it is fun to shoot....and I own the AMT as well:eek:

    Also had one of those toys as a youngster when my Father was stationed at Parris Island as a D.I. in the late 50s. Shot little plastic bullets.

    As for "want it anyway," nothing from the movies. I just want an M1 Garand. No frills. No special additives. Plain, simple Garand. I'm sure my Father would get a kick out of it. He went through WW II, Korea and 2 tours in Vietnam before he retired from the Marine Corps.

    That's the one, but it's not a fullsize, it was their compact. Definitely a good scene of the movie though...
