Sometimes, the gun is the movie star.
These 20 movie guns dazzled us senseless on the big screen.
20. Mad Max's sawed off VG Bentley Double-Barreled shotgun. When this short-stature weapon speaks, all listen.
19. In The Matrix Reloaded, Morpheus deals some serious lead with a full auto Glock 18C pistol. Who doesn't love a fully automatic Glock?
18. Alice of Resident Evil: Extinction puts a pair of sweet Para-Ordnance Nite-Tacs (.45 1911s) into action. We can't argue with that.
17. Our favorite vampire, Salena of Underworld, puts a pair of Walther P99s pistols to work against the attacking werewolves.
16. When Dirty Harry speaks, you listen, or do you feel luck punk? Well do ya? His S&W Model 29 in the mighty .44 Magnum Cartridge does his talking.
15. Charles Bronson "Paul Kersey" in Death Wish 3 uses a Wildey Hunter in the huge .475 Wildey Magnum to take out street thugs out of range of smaller calibers.
14. Arnold Schwarzenegger as the original Terminator takes aim with an AMT Hardballer .45 Pistol with a really old-school laser sight. You have been terminated.
13. Good ole John Wayne will certainly not be left out armed with a lever action Winchester Model 1892. The Duke always wins.
12. Who can forget Pamela Anderson armed with her Heckler & Koch MP5A3 Machine Gun in Barb Wire?
11. Westworld's villian (Ed Harris) is armed with a LeMat Revolver. That was a whole load of firepower back in the old west.
10. Vasily Zaitsev (Jude Law) takes aim at the invading German army with his Mosin Nagant M91/30 Sniper Rifle in Enemy At The Gates.
9. John McClane (Bruce Willis) blasts terrorists in Die Hard with his Beretta M92FS Pistol.
8. Eddie Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop readies his Browning Hipower Pistol for combat.
7. Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) will use this Mac-10 to get the job done in Escape From New York.
6. Jed Eckert (Patrick Swayze) uses his Colt Single Action revolver in Red Dawn to prove a point against his foes.
5. Constantine (Keanu Reeves) puts the undead back in the ground with his Holy Shotgun.
4. The original Robocop shows off his incredible shooting skills. You can't buy them like that at your local gunshop.
3. Dwayne Johnson, "The Rock," lays down some heavy firepower from a M249 Squad Machine Gun in Fast and Furious.
2. James Braddock (Chuck Norris) breaks out the flame thrower for maximum destruction in Missing In Action.
