I'm not original

Friendly Fred has pointed out in Movie Guns X comments that Madogre has a "The Guns of :" movie section, which I just checked out. Honestly, I had no idea that Madogre existed, or that he had a section highlighting the various guns that are used in movies until Friendly Fred pointed it out. His section gives great detail to the shootouts and weapons used, and he has covered many of the same movies that I have. Great minds think alike.

My Movie Guns posts started out because I was goofing off with capturing frames from movies that featured 1911's, and it kinda turned into a weekly thing which I will keep up. The first movie that I covered was the movie WAR with Jet Li and Jason Statham. In that post I was actually mocking the movie for inaccuracies, and I went back later and made it the first of the movie guns section.

I like pictures so I try to capture some of the gunplay and give a brief overview in order to fully understand the scene. Unfortunately, I'm not very familiar with firearms from western movies, or cap-and-ball/muzzleloading firearms for that matter, but I will get educated shortly because I would like to feature some films with these types of weapons. There are awesome firefights in older movies and I want to find them.

So I guess I'm not very original, and I don't want to take away anything from Madogre, but I will try to offer something different in my posts. If you have any requests, let me know and I will try to accommodate.
