In this episode, TFBTV GOES TO HOLLYWOOD! (Well, technically Burbank, California.) This video is a part of a 5 episode series covering guns used in cinema and film, and we kick off the playlist with this Episode 1, "The Top 5 Most Expensive Guns from Movies." In terms of episode ones, we think this ep one is better than Star Wars' ep one, but that's not setting the bar too high. Anyways, Larry Zanoff, as the head honcho at Independent Studio Services (or "ISS"), runs perhaps the biggest movie prop house in the world, and oversees an arsenal of over SIXTEEN THOUSAND GUNS. Today, Larry tells us about the 5 most expensive guns in the collection.

    Video idea: analysis of the gun buying scene in _Taxi Driver._
    What were *all* the guns on offer?
    There's the named ones that Travis buys, but what were the other ones as well?
    I can easily spot the Lugar cause it's so distinctive… but the rest.?
    And in your honest opinion what should he have bought?
    The .44 is ridiculous really.
    The PPK is a good all rounder (if it's .380, and if the PPK had a few spare mags then he could've handled the shootout just with it).
    The .38 revolver is a good backup.
    Ok the .25 just for the "faster than you".
    _He bought way to many guns at inflated illegal prices._
    But what about the others that weren't chosen?
    Is the Lugar a good 9mm for the time? It has a reputation for unreliability, but according to InRange TV testing it's really reliable.
    Anything else there that would be a good pick?
    Come on, nitpick it.
    And for the time - the 1970's (sorry, no Glocks), if I was in that situation and had the availablity, I'd just get a 1911 .45, or maybe a Browning 9mm (if available), a few spare mags, and a holdout piece (once again the Walter).
    Perhaps a revolver in the same calibre as the main semi auto - if I got the Browning (9mm revolvers are a lot smaller than .45 revolvers).

    I visited Both ISS and Stembridge in 1999, ( as well as Mike Dillon) and a. Was impressed by the skill of ISS staff;
    Was disappointed by theconditions at Stembridge ( just before the Stembridge sisters soldout) and was super impressed by Mike Dillon, who had just won a contractfor making complete M134 Miniguns ( he had already patented and made a new universal delinker to replace the US only M13 / M80 combination belts...his delinker would work with any Nato spec Ammo and link. I askedthecost of a complete M134 setup for Movie use, and he mentioned a Six figure US$ sum, plus all the State Department etc Export Documentation...truely a valuable item.

    14:25 a little know game called Black
    IMO was the first to really aim for the right sound and look back when EA published good games
    For those that didn't know when Black came out it was called
    "Gun porn"
    If I recall it even tracked if you had to pull charging handle or had a round in the chamber.
    Prior to that many games went to get the look right, but often used the same sound for say all pistols.

    The irony of a massive (and amazing) arsenal, located in anti-gun California, whose sole purpose is to supply arms for use by gun-loving characters, portrayed by anti-gun movie "stars" cannot be overstated.
    The paradox is almost hilarious....almost.
    Outstanding video though...can't wait for the rest!

    That is a very optimistic view on kids and our future. I don't think we will have those next generation of fighter jets. I think if we bend over for the woke scolds like the cowards are every day, America is through. What will we be defending when the supreme court rules "hate speech" is not protected under the first amendment? What about "supporting" the 2nd amendment and banning all different types of guns by creating a roster like in California? We don't have time to appoint another supreme court justice. Trump loses this election, and they will allow rampant illegal immigration, make DC the 51st state, and abolish the electoral college with the supreme court. It's over. Enjoy your last 4th of July celebration. There will be no celebration in 2021.

    A fact that they didnt seem to point out, movie guns will not shoot live ammo. They all have internal blank adapters and have been rechambered to accept blanks only and still cycle. So they are essentially real but not live firearms.

    I was a tooling engineer and supplier in Detroit, MI for several years and can say without hesitation that measuring value by man-hours spent machining a non functioning firearm (especially accessory!) is not that much money. If I have a schematic and the will to do it, its a fairly simple process from there.... Whoops! I should have watched the whole thing as he does say the electronics are functioning lol
