    Some of those Baptys guns have come on to the market in recent years. The boys frame with a savage No.4 action bolted to it springs to mind.

    Is no-one able to come up with a caption for the image in post 1, appropriate or inappropriate?

    Just saying, ISS guns are in shocking condition. I worked on an episode of Gunnytime with their MkII Bren and literally had to rebuild it from parts I’d brought with me as it had been so utterly butchered to fire blanks.

    "...can fire from the hip like that..." You do know that there is no actually firing of anything, blanks included, in movies? And it's not a real MG.
    “Saving Private Ryan” was a fairy tale. You cannot take the scope off an '03A4 and expect it to maintain zero.
    "...sound record actual gun sounds..." By far, very, very few gaming industry programmers have ever seen a real firearm. Never mind fired one. The U.S. Army put a few of 'em through weapons training, several years ago(forget how long ago. More than 10 years) when they were working on a PBI training simulator, so the programmers had an idea of what real shooting was like.
    Movie gun shot sounds are added in Post Production. They don't think real gun shots sound real enough.

    Saving Private Ryan had much of the weapons fired in the landings done against a bluescreen and they were actual weapons firing. That achieves the realism of sound and watching an MG 42 fire. Then edit in the downrange screen... Same with BOB during the training in Englandicon scenes just before the jump into Normandy, the weapon training was live firing of Thompsons and other small arms, and specially the rocket launcher where you actually saw the rocket go down range from the back of the launcher and strike. Don't know where they found a live 2.75 rocket though...or was it a 3.5? It's the easiest way to do things now.
    Regards, Jim

    I thought that it was based on a true storey. According to Wikipedia it was "inspired" by a true storey.

    It's called suspension of disbelief, and is pretty important for the enjoyment of most films, including the "fairy tales".
