Just noticed THAT Beretta in the movie poster has the round trigger guard.  :thinker:

I just noticed he is left handed. I never saw the movies so I guess that is old news to most.

I believe I may have ALREADY owned a 92F before the movie ,so he cant take credit for that. LOL.  :P

It had the square combat trigger guard .

If I remember correctly, the round trigger guard on the 92 was stopped in about 1985, but then brought back much later on the 90 - two. .

About the only realistic part of that movie was he fired about 30,000 rounds at bad guys and it NEVER jammed.  :P  :th_thicon_funny:

Local theater is showing it in November, on the big screen - for the 30th anniversary. I have a ticket :)

Haven't seen it in the theater since 1988 :)

"Allstate Tires"

Anyone remember those?  Cheapest tires anywhere, makes you wonder why a company with an insurance company w/ same name would sell cheap tires and insurance for the same cars...

Awesome movie. Diehard and Lethal Weapon made me appreciate the Beretta 92 I have.
