    Hihosilva -

    You were generous enough to give folks your grip pattern on the GT forum -- you might consider adding it to the Downloads section on here.

    Those would be 147 grn HydraShocks. I've got one that I shot into frozen water jugs to see the expansion, too. Cool stuff.

    I will gladly re-submit my grip tape template for download. I'm guessing there is a section for that? :lol: I'll find it and post.

    That clip from Collateral slays me - great job! It was definitely the best part of the movie, that and the end where he misses the mag change because he's hit. Michael Mann was a gun nut with the very technical scenes in Miami Vice, I wish he made more movies like Heat and Collateral.



    Yeah, I downloaded the grip tape template from the GT Steyr forum, thanks again for that. I take it it is the same for the S9, except the down piece is shorter?

    Did you happen to do the same test with clothing around the water jugs? I like the gelatin tests you always see in magazines, but that's like shooting someone who's naked. Does anyone have a link to "real world" bullet tests?

    Thanks

    I will be on the set of the new Miami Vice movie that Mann is filming down in Miami and later in Brazil.

    FYI, Mann is extremely picky and very technical about everything...but, that is why he is so good.

    Mick Gould has worked with Mann on a number of movies. He is ex-British Special Air Service. He trained Tom in Collateral, I believe he trained Bob, V. Kilmer, A. Pacino, etc...for Heat.

    When John Frankemheimer did Ronin in 1997, Mick Gould also trained Bob D., Natscha, Sean, Stellan Skasgard, Jean Reno, Skip, and Jonathan Pryce in proper use and deployment of firearms. But, that is why these movies are so good. Towards the end of Ronin, Jonathan does some close quarters point shooting, Bob D and his use of the Sig 550 is also absolutely awesome and overall, it is entirely believeable because it can all happen in real life.
    Frankenheimer was another stickler for details and he too, was a true artist at directing and his work was always fascinating...especially in Ronin. A brilliant man.

    Honestly, I can't take credit for the gif. It's borrowed from another board I'm on. It's definitely a good one. Total credit of course goes to those who conceived and shot it.

    One of my firms is actually supplying stuff to the set of the film so I will be there partially as liaison and partially because I am interested in seeing what is going on. I was on the set for Bad Boys II and The Pacifier, amongst others recently...
    Can't say more than that at this point though.

    SAS are BADDD MEN

    CGuns - sounds like a great job that you get to see all the behind-the-scences stuff for cool movies. The Bad Boys series had the worst gun handling ever! Remember the scene where Martin Lawrence and Will Smith answer the door and its the boy who's going to take out Martin's daughter? Will Smith acts like some drunk/lawless fool and points his gun at Martin and the kid! Horrible!

    Anyway, I'm lucky enough to shoot IDPA here locally with an ex-SAS guy whose day job is training Delta Force guys at Ft. Bragg and FBI HRT at Quantico, VA. He sets up a lot of the courses for IDPA and 3-gun at my range. He's a top IDPA national shooter who finishes right up there with Todd Jarrett and Dave Sevigny. He always shoots the 3-gun matches with pistol only because he's a serious competitor for that and wants the trigger time. But just a few weeks ago he was giving a friend of mine some M4 carbine pointers for 3-gun competition and WOW. He demonstrated some SAS techniques for carbines and assault rifles that really work and it was incredible to see him move/shoot/reload and NOT MISS. It looked almost impossibly easy for him.

    FlaChef - thanks for the link - that is a great test with lots of nice pictures. It sure did answer a lot. I need to get one of those Bushmaster 5.56 NATO pistols and get a shoulder sling for CCW!

    FlaChef I really like the Box O'truth website. Those guys sure come up with some interesting tests.
