Default An Oldie but a goodie

Actors where training by ex-SAS to be as realistic as possible in their employment of firearms.

Features:
-Once they are in the street and Val Kilmer notices the uniforms notice NO hesitation + immediate violence of Action.
-Use of “move!” “Moving!” equivalents.
-No movement w/o fire.
-Struggle for fire superiority
-Application of the buddy team w/ suppressive fire to allow partenrs movement.

Way too much use of automatic fire for my taste .... but I understand this was IAW the doctrine of their time for small teams struggling for fire superiority.
Other than that quite good and can even serve as an instructional video in some ways.

From IMDB's trivia section on the movie;

In June of 2002, the scene involving the shootout after the bank robbery was shown to United States Marine recruits at MCRD San Diego as an example of the proper way to retreat while under fire.
I've also seen interviews, where Kilmer talks about a Marine D.I., who challenged his grunts at Basic, to reload and get back into a firefight, "faster than some &(*&^%*^%$#^#@ Hollywood actor!"

I have only seen pieces of this show I think, even though I actually have owned it for many years now. Perhaps its time I got it out and dusted it off again.

Yes - because you were thinking of De Niro in, Ronin...




And that's a Sig 552.

He does not need guns when he has armed guards around him, or he is one of the few in commieforina with a ccw.

Close, it's a 551, at least as far as I (and these guys: Ronin - Internet Movie Firearms Database - Guns in Movies, TV and Video Games know).

Also, kinda ironic that he wants people to get rid of their guns.
Career-wise, he seems quite fond of them: Robert De Niro - Internet Movie Firearms Database - Guns in Movies, TV and Video Games
