appearance in a major motion picture or TV series? Do you remember a great reload, a great proper handling scene -- or even a lame scene where the AR was mishandled?

Since heat was taken already...Blood Diamond. You don't see much of the M4, but this movie is one of the few examples of good gun handling skills. This scene doesn't demonstrate that as much as some of the handgun scenes, but the gun handling skills of the characters who were supposed to know what they were doing were actually better in Blood Diamond than Heat. Don't get me wrong, heat was amazing. Especially the scene where they rob the armored car and the battle scene posted. But there are some examples of really poor gun handling skills as well. It certainly makes my top 5 best gun handling in a Hollywood movie list. I actually rank Blood Diamond over Collateral in this respect. While Tom Cruise has the best firearms handling skills ever filmed in two very amazing scenes, Mark Ruffalo has unbelievably bad gun handling skills that are not at all consistent with his character...so it looses some major points. Tom, like Leo, put in the time to learn to do it right, Mark clearly didn't.

I like this scene out of heat starting where Waynegrow (SP) freaks out (skip to about 1:40 if you want). Once the first two guards get killed, they kill they one who is not even resisting. Not because they want to kill him but because it now makes more sense from a strategic standpoint. They are already looking at the death penalty. One guard, or all the guards that doesn't change. But if they let the other guards live the chances they will get caught increases. So better to leave no witnesses. The coldness of that really struck me. Right and wrong were completely removed from the equation. Sent chills down my spine.

Ever hear about the 1997 North Hollywood bank robbery shoot out? 2 men armed with fully automatic assault rifles wearing body armour managed to hold off a small army of LAPD patrol officers. Those 2 men wreaked havoc on LAPD until SWAT showed up with heavy arms. Sound familiar? Reportedly, the gunmen viewed 'Heat' repeatedly. For that scene, Michael Mann brought in two ex-SAS soldiers to oversee and choreograph the sequence for realistic small unit CQB. Mann- even though he is 'Hollywood'- is known as a stickler for detail. That clip is actually used at the JFK SWC as an example of "fire and maneuver"-- one instructor is quoted to have said, "You see how he changes out his magazine? That's the way to do it." Referring to Kilmer's mag changes. SOMETIMES, life imitates art.

everyone likes to make fun of TC cuz of the ghey factor, but he's actually a bad mofo. Hes a little weird in some of his beliefs, but than again so are we. I also know he has taken many many carbine classes, pistol classes, SD classes. He has body guards because legal reasons...not for personal ones. He can take care of himself better than most.

its a training tool to stop yourself from shooting your hand and to be ready to fend off a secondary attack during shooting, which will happen.

50% of the time a "fighter" is going to keep up the attack even after you start blasting center mass. Be prepared or you may lose control of the firearm. The "fighter" can still function long enough to disarm you and ventilate you.

The "fleer" will back away from the gunfire, in which case you can also step back, then go to aimed fire to tap the noggin once or twice.

I believe it's a modified version of the classic one-handed shooting stance. I was taught to shoot with my weak hand at my chest while drawing from my holster and if I had to execute a quick one handed shot while fending off a danger close tango. Also, the theory behind it is that having your weak hand braced against your chest gives you some amount of stabilization that takes the place of your weak hand stabilizing the weapon in a two-handed grip. That's my guess.... or, it could just be he did it cuz it looks way cool. Ha.

dieselpower
04-15-2011, 1:17 PM
I can see that. We were taught the muzzle should be the farthest thing sticking out from your body at all times. Nothing of yours should ever be forward of the muzzle.

on the back, shooting through the knees is the exception, but the gun should be forward of the knees.

Not sure about the closed fist in the pic, but my understanding for the shot from the hip, is that you are placing the weak hand on the chest to keep it at the ready for moving to a two-handed grip should you go there. And yes it keeps it out of the way by impressing a muscle memory to place it there.

in full speed it doesn't look too bad, but looks kinda silly in slow mo, especially when he begins to turn. Would have been better if he had actually gotten his draw on the second tug and was shot before he could get it fully pointed. Probably best if he fires as he's hit or just after.

I didn't like Blackhawk Down as much because it didn't do Mark Bowden justice. The book was amazing and some of the things that were omitted or changed were disappointing. The most memorable rifle scenes in Full Metal Jacket was an M14 in Pyle's mouth, in Platoon it was Charlie Sheen hot boxing Willem Dafoe's joint from an M16 (very homo erotic in hindsight), so Hamburger Hill by default.

Immediately after this scene ends, he takes down the kid that got away with an AK that he snatches up. It's one of the best assault rifle scenes I've ever seen in a movie. He carefully aims and fires a burst about one second long, which kills the fleeing rebel child soldier. In most movies, when someone gets their hands on a fully automatic rifle, they shoot from the hip and fire about three or four magazines' worth every time they pull the trigger.

Black Hawk Down got me in love with black rifles for sure.

I personally like the CAR-15/M-4 style AR-15.

That Heat shootout was so phony. I never knew those 30 round magazines actually held 120 rounds. They shot forever before reloading and how come 60 cops couldnt hit 3 men, but those 3 men shot all the cops?

Ever hear about the 1997 North Hollywood bank robbery shoot out? 2 men armed with fully automatic assault rifles wearing body armour managed to hold off a small army of LAPD patrol officers. Those 2 men wreaked havoc on LAPD until SWAT showed up with heavy arms. Sound familiar? Reportedly, the gunmen viewed 'Heat' repeatedly. For that scene, Michael Mann brought in two ex-SAS soldiers to oversee and choreograph the sequence for realistic small unit CQB. Mann- even though he is 'Hollywood'- is known as a stickler for detail. That clip is actually used at the JFK SWC as an example of "fire and maneuver"-- one instructor is quoted to have said, "You see how he changes out his magazine? That's the way to do it." Referring to Kilmer's mag changes. SOMETIMES, life imitates art.


The North Hollywood shooters actually used Heat as inspiration- they took watches and had them stitched into their gloves and ran on a set timeline like DeNiro's crew. Love Heat; along with Ronin, one of my all-time favorites I can watch day after day.

It's a toss up for me between the .50 Cal scene from the newest Rambo and the charge up the hill in We Were Soldiers.

They learned from the same guys that fired a six shot revolver 30x in the old west.....30x vs 6.....120x vs 30....see they are getting better with the ratios...

Nother couple of generations they'll figure we have ray guns and not have to be real.
