The Guns Of James Bond

Taken from the Dr. No 2007 DVD Special Features:

I believe the His Name Is James Bond song said it best:

I need heaps of gadgets cause I carry a shit gun / after killing my enemies I like to make shit puns

I’m still looking forward to SkyFall (Release Date November 9th).  I’m actually considering breaking my no theater streak to see it.

Thoughts?

Are we use to be a gun heavy hobby nation, then Hungerford and Dunblaine happened, and away they went!

Interesting video, always liked the original Q (quartermaster) figure in the books. Wonder how he would of rated the Walther P99 – though I see the PPK is back in Skyfall??

He’s probably long since dead, but it would be interesting to find out.

they never actually outlawed guns, just made them harder to get and put restrictions on some, then others and as if by magic you are a criminal if you want to shoot stuff.

2:07 – Camera man in line of fire… lol
Good thing he didn’t quick fire 2 shots with that .44 or he wouldn’t have a face from the 2nd shot.

Well that had a heaping helping of unsafe procedures, but his comments about nonsense about guns in books was pretty intresting. I remember reading an epicly terrible book called crooked little vein written by an Englishman who refered to the Ruger 44 Blackhawk as being “so powerful that if you shot a deer with it it would die like god himself came down from heaven and punched it in the head.”

Bloody toff.
