These 10 famous movie guns should be recognizable, but can you name the film that they came from?
Hollywood and guns go together like chicken and waffles. From Clint Eastwood to James Bond, and hand guns to the oft used machine gun, the movies we love just wouldn't be the same without them.
Famous movie guns are like that; we just couldn't watch a movie without them.
Movies and the firearms in them come and go, whether they are real life or just fantasy, but American firepower is what makes action movies the go-to films that keep us coming to the theater. When Smith & Wesson created some of those valued firearms that we crave, or the first time we discovered what the Walther PPK could do, it was probably on the big screen.
Whether it was a World War or Star Wars, we have all wanted some of these famous guns in our hands at one time or another. From the long-range sniper rifle to the grenade launcher and everything in between, we want to gather some ammo and create our own fictional shootout, even when we're just having fun out on the range.
Since we've all seen the movies, now is the time for you to take a little test to find out just how much you were paying attention in that dark movie theater! Here are 10 firearms--real and fictional--that all have a place in movie lore, but can you name the film that they came from?
The answers are at the end so no peeking.
1.Heckler & Koch P30L V3
Has this firearm stopped more fictional bad guys than any other?
2. M60E3 Short Barrel
The character that carries this one has one of the most fun and famous shootout lines in history: "CONTACT!"
3. The Greeners
When this man used these in his film, you just knew that the bad guys were going to pay a big price. "I thought you were dead." His reply: "Not hardly."
4. Barret M82A2
Not the best in this series of films, but this baby did the trick.
5. M41A Pulse Rifle
Man, did they need a few of these in the original movie.
6. LAPD 2019 Blaster
Also known as the PKD Series-D Blaster, the 2019 Detective Special, and the M2019 Blaster.
7. Custom Built Cam-Operated, Electric Driven Auto 12ga
This weapon is said to have a "25-shell cylinder," but a "fire rate of 900 rounds per minute" so you probably guessed that this one is fictional.
8. McMillan TAC-338A
A lot of bad guys are gone thanks to this hero and this rifle.
9. Beretta 92F
One of many firearms used to save the day in this 1988 classic.
10. .44 Auto Mag Model 180
When this beautiful .44 was brought out in this film, the wielder of it uttered this famous line: "Well, this is the .44 Magnum Auto Mag, and it holds a 300 grain cartridge... And if properly used, it can remove the fingerprints."
Here's the answer key: (do you even need it?)
