How many of you saw Aliens, saw the pistols used, then went out and BOUGHT a pistol because of it? Either a Smith 39 or a HK VP70?
I seem to remember Tam having admitted to a serious jones for the VP70, but not necessarily because of this movie or any other. Bet it didn't hurt though. And I have no idea if she actually bought one.
Or any movie. How many Berettas were purchased because of Mel Gibson or Bruce Willis in Lethal Weapon or Die Hard?
Now I can understand not wanting to admit being a serious gunnie now and falling Hollywood marketing at one time...
I guess WWII video games and Band of Brothers was a big impetus to me getting a Garand. That's nothing to regret. Customizing a P-38 to match the Man from U.N.C.L.E. gun might be taking it too far though.
Heck, I'm a bit embrassed for seeing a 1911 in the Aliens movie instead of the Smith it was. Silly mistake.
