    I watched Costner shoot the BAR again closely.....I'd bet money after he shot it, off camera, he shouted out holy sh*t this thing almost took my shoulder off! LMAO

    Do you think they were using full power loads?

    I've always assumed that the prop guns Hollywood actors used just shot blanks. Maybe I'm wrong.

    My dad carried one during the 52 Korean winter games. Love both those actors. I assume Costner is playing Hamer?

    I'm also under the impression that they use guns modified to cycle blanks when shooting scenes where you can actually see the firearm function. They also use fake guns (similar in concept to airsoft) that can be manipulated but not fired in scenes that don't involve shooting.

    They used blanks.
    Shooting a BAR standing off the shoulder, he’d have been practically vertical by the 10th round.

    When I was in the army I was attached to a USMC unit, they had BAR men in each squad. Gun weighed 20 lbs, shot 30-06 and was quite shootable with training.

    It's just a movie, but I'll have to go see it, not cause of the gun, but I have an interest in that era of our country's history.

    The ‘trailer’ says 29 March but if you Google it, says the release date is 15 March. (Take your pick).

    Netflix has become quite the power player. They're creating original content with A-list actors. I'm sure the big Hollywood producers are just loving this.

    Between advances in home theater technology and Netflix releasing original content almost directly to their online streaming platform, I can see a day when no one bothers to go to the Movie Theater. That is unless you enjoy sticky floors and sitting in a chair that's been soaking up the butt sweat and farts of random strangers.

    And Costner is also for banning firearms from us crazy citizens who have broken no laws.

    Still, it looks like a good movie and I also love history from that time in the good old USA.

    Looks awesome to me!
    If it comes anywhere near me I'll see it.
    If I boycotted every movie based on the politics (or personality) of the actors involved I'd never see anything...
    Frankly, none of them have anything in common with a white-trash country boy from Iowa.
    They exist in my small slice of the universe purely for their entertainment value.
    Outside of that they don't matter...Heck some of my favorite actors aren't even American.

    Woody Harrelson appears to be a pro-gun 2A supporter from what little information is available on the net about his 2A views. He was born in Midland, Texas and his real life father died in prison - he was a hit man (who took out a federal judge).

    Kevin Costner is the quintessential definition of a FUDD. Owns guns and likes to hunt - wife bought him a shotgun for his last birthday but he’s a supporter of stronger gun laws. (“Guns for me but not for thee”). The perfect FUDD.


    Hollyweird - always a tough choice to make (for me); but I’ll go see the movie - looks like a good one. Been to Bonnie and Clyde’s gravesites here in Dallas (separate cemeteries) - my foreign in-laws wanted to see them! Had a Texas Ranger join my friend and me for lunch at the last NRA convention - he was with Ranger Company B. Neat guy, wearing their trademark white Stetson with his ranger badge outside his shirt pocket.

    Can’t wait! I’ve always been interested in the Depression Era Gangsters. I’m not a fan of Harrelson’s work, outside of Cheers. But really enjoy Costner’s stuff. Should be a great flick!

    My problem with movies and TV is that I use them as relaxation things. If I stopped watching movies and TV shows because actors are usually liberals, I'd never watch anything.
