That one was a Glock 26. It had like 25 red rubberbands around the grip. Looked crude and ugly, but I guess it would work. Not a good idea for XD users since it would compress the grip safety.
If you saw Sin City, it had a Springfield Armory .45 :x I wonder if SA did it for the advertisment?
I would think that the Glock will be the standard movie gun for years to come. They have just simply been around longer than the XD.

And if you saw the making of, they were airsoft pistols. Looked like they even painted them silver. The magic of movies.

Training Day....Yep. I think so. The scene where Denzel shoots the old man drug dealer for all that money and they make the white dude hold a shotgun. The black dirty cop with the braids, looks like he has a XD. Maybe im wrong but when he whips it out it looks like a XD

I have yet to see an XD show up in a movie. I guess they will have to be out longer, before Hollywood picks up on them.

I did, however, see Sahara last weekend. The movie was average, but the guns were great. Lots of Hi-Powers and several FALs and AKs.

I have not seen on in any movies yet.
I agree that the Glock will be the standard movie pistol for years to come. At least til the XD becomes more popular.

I'll have to watch it again to see. That movie was actually very cool and fun w/ all the gun closeups and what not.

I hate to ask this, but is this movie as disturbing as the 70s version? I remember I saw it with friends at the midnight movies and it was too gruesome for me and very disturbing even to this day. :oops:

They definitely paid to be in Sin City. Movie producers/directors generally remove branding marks, even from easily identifiable items, unless the manufacturer pays in one way or another. Considering the number of times that 1911 was shown close-up with "Springfield Armory" clearly displayed, there must have been a deal.
I would think that the Glock will be the standard movie gun for years to come. They have just simply been around longer than the XD.
You definitely see a lot of Glocks in the movies, but equally a lot of HK and Sig pistols. The Replacement Killers was heavily laden with USPs, some of them in custom finishes to make them look different.

Dunno. Never saw the 70's version. :oops:

I know this one really wasn't all that greusome, or at least not as far as I'm concerned. Maybe I'll grab the old one and watch it this weekend and I'll hook you up w/ an eval. If I have time, that is...

Yeah, I remember the 70s version had some people take cover in a shopping mall. Turns out that there is also a well stocked gun shop in the mall too :shock: . One guy chooses a hunting rifle and I think someone else got a AR-15. Anyways they go hunting zombies and it's pretty bloody and gorey from there on out. :twisted:

I'm still traumatized :x
