Default What famous (or infamous) person's gun would you enjoy shooting?

Pick that one person ( living or dead ) and name that one gun of theirs that you would enjoy having for one week of shooting.

Bonus points if you post a picture of it.


I was going to ask about full gun collections but I know that would get a lot of answers like Charlton Heston's Big collection.

^ Too bad because you'll only get a prop gun that set up to shoot only blanks.

Man, that's going to get boring after a week.


His real blaster is far far away or didn't you read that in the credits.

Vera



"Six men came to kill me one time. And the best of 'em carried this. It's a Callahan full-bore auto-lock. Customized trigger, double cartridge thorough gauge. It is my very favorite gun This is the best gun made by man. It has extreme sentimental value I call her Vera."
―Jayne Cobb

You kids don't know any real Action Heros?


I'd gladly take General Patton's guns for spin and I wouldn't care which one it was. ...

Probably Clyde Barrow's .45 cal Tommy Gun, partly because I've never shot one but mostly, just because.




Fictitious person would be Sledge Hammer's S&W Mod 629, again, just because.

I want to shoot Mal''s gun. If I remember right it is a heavily modified S&W revolver that the prop shop changed.

Funny how people go straight to fictitious television or movie characters rather than dead or alive, real life "famous persons" as you said.
I wonder what Sigmund would have had to say about that?

^ I was thinking the same thing.

To each their own.


( but they're all getting the prop guns so they'd be lucky if they even shot blanks.)

Lol, I thought the exact same thing but went with Barrow's Tommy Gun because I know I can spray and pray, replicating Oswald's supposed marksmanship would be an impossibility for me.

I fired one in Vegas. It was surprisingly soft shooting. I was easily able to dump an entire magazine into an 8” target a 30yds.

Gavrilo Princips FN model 1910. Seems like it'd be a fun little plinker.

None. Just because someone "special" owned it I feel nothing different if I shot it.
But it would be nice to shoot the "guns" (16")on the Battleship just rusting away at Pearl Harbor.
