Love this film

What kind of sick man gives cigarettes to trees!?!

Something I have always wondered if they planned on having Robin use the Israeli FAL instead of the Valmet. When he was explaining the gun purchase to his wife he described it as a .308. Or maybe it was a mistake on the writers part, I think everything else was correct. But I would have to re-watch it. I also like that he explained it was only semi-auto, instead of walking out of gun store with a select fire weapon. Even though the film mocks survivalist, it's fun to watch. --Predator20 14:09, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Noticed Something


In this image, you can see the .45 has an external extractor. Does that make it possibly a Star PM or a replica model? - Gunmaster45

Eagle Eyed GM45 does it again. I wonder sometimes about his unnatural superpowers of gun IDing......... If it is a long slide it is a Star Modelo Super. But it looks like a standard M1911 profile. Star Model P? MoviePropMaster2008 04:36, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

It's been years since I saw this but I remember Williams' hilarious description of the Valmet describing it like you would a new appliance and his dramatic unfolding of the stock. At one point though doesn't the camp leader order all the men whose weapons have been converted to full auto to go with him in the final confrontation with the hitman? (P.S. though I may not possess GM45's eye for detail I have a somewhat annoying ability to remember cinematic trivia) --Charon68 06:34, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes he does, but you must remember that at the time the movie was made ('83) F/A conversions were legal. The "Firearm Owners Protection Act" which included the Hughes Amendment, which banned all F/A firearms that were not previously registered from being owned or transferred by civilians, wouldn't be passed till May 19th 1986.-Ranger01 07:18, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
