Default Where can I get movie ammo?

I was watching another DVD and thought if I could only find their ammo. My .380 would drop an elephant and there would NEVER be survivors of an armed confrontation to muddy the court system. Let me know if you find any. Thanks

Sounds like you just watched Patton (George C Scott) shoot down that German ME109 with his Colt M1908, eh?

Actually it was the one with the curving bullets. Zero bad guy survived.

Also known as “ Hollywood ammo”
They have special magazines also. Looks like 30 round magazines that shoots 20,000 rounds and still don’t hit anything.

I was a flight engineer at MGM grand air for a very brief period of time. During a return trip from ?New York I got an offer to go to the studio and watch a movie in the making. Harrison Ford in Something I just don’t remember. What I seen that day, totally cured me to go to the movies. Years later Connie Kaletta painted up one of his 100 series 747 to look like AF one. Another H Ford movie. Have never seen it.

Might be showing my age on this. Do you remember the old Western movies when Roy or Gene, Bob or Lash would be chasing the bad guys and they never ran out of bullets!

Yup. I can’t count the number of movies I’ve seen and commented out loud to no one in particular “About time to change the mag” or “he needs to spend a lot more time at the range”....

The bad guys up on the cliff with the 92 Winchesters couldn't hit the good guys riding their horses down below. BUT, the good guys, on horse-back, with their revolvers could pick off the bad guys.

Cool Well maybe

Yeah, those Winchesters, and Colt 45's must have been special to have such accuracy, and been so easy to reload while chasing people on horseback. And yes, throwing the bullets out the barrel. I guess that climate change had not had an effect on the earth yet, and the bullets would fly different than they do today.
