The Highwaymen - Classic Guns Galore

Recommended Posts

Just watched the Netflix movie “The Highwaymen” with Costner and Harrelson.

Based on Texas Rangers Frank Hamer and Maney Gault while on the hunt for Bonnie and Clyde.

Decent movie with lots of good classic guns:

S&W M1917, Colt Monitor, cutdown BAR, Thompsons, 1903s, Remington Model 81, Winchester Model 1892

Pretty good way to spend a couple of hours.

The scene where he walks into the store and walks out with all those classic firearms was sweet.

Movie itself was just okay.  Enjoyable but nothing special.  I wonder how accurate it was historically versus how much was embellished.  If I had to guess I would say it was probably pretty accurate as it wasn't over glamorized.

Watched it. I like it. Actually enjoyed the fact that the movie focused on the good guys and really didn't glamorize Bonnie & Clyde.  

I think we (more me, haha) take for granted how powerful the 30/06 round is. Also that generation carried that cannon (and garands) all over the world, and kicked ass with it.

    • This we all agree on... So, you also believe that you can point a gun at someone who HASN'T broken any laws, and you can yell "FIRE" in a crowded theater, even when one doesn't exist?  Just because of "feelings" or you don't like the LOOK of someone?

So, that would be ANY semi-auto with a pistol grip, any caliber...  
    • Yep, did you see this one too? (D) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following: “(i) A threaded barrel. So, any pistol that you can order a threaded barrel for, is also banned.
