Must-See Gun Movies

I’ve been binging Westworld, the remake on HBO. Their “single action” revolvers seem to have a few advanced features. There are a lot of scenes where the lady doesn’t bother to cock the hammer first, just pumps away on the trigger. And most of the time there are 6 rounds in them, which is okay, but the firing pin is clearly visible in closeups where the hammer is cocked back. I thought they loaded only 5 back then.

And how about that huge revolver the black-hatted bad guy totes! Never seen one like that before.

Sorry to be so nit-picky, but I’ve been shooting for about three years now and I know just enough to be dangerous…

For fun-fiction, I liked “Unforgiven ”. Never seen “Dark Tower ”; I’ll check it out.

How bout:

Triple Frontier
Acts of Vengeance

Billy Jack

1917, of course.

And Dunkirk.

The Promise has some good WW1 vintage weaponry

Didn’t see anyone mention “The Mexican” - Just kidding on that one, really bad. Seriously “Terminator II” didn’t make the list?

Two more:
There Be Dragons (Broomhandle Mauser alert!)

For Greater Glory (rebuilding old guns for the Cristeros)

My favorite as a child.

Outlaw (2008)

Great actors before their prime. Remember Death Wish?; This one has six vigilante lads working as a group, but in England. Of course, not good to take law into one’s hands, but entertaining fiction.

Son’s of Katie Elder.

Haven’t read al the posts, but noticed one with Terence Hill above. Great movie with him and Henry Fonda called “My Name is Nobody”.
