Ah, yes I remember now. I believe he also commented that since he was surrounded by cops all the time, he didn't need more firepower. I remember seeing on the nightstand. I'm not a big fan of the cutaway trigger guard though.

I'd have to have them draw down on each other to finally decide but it's between Gene Hackman in "The French Connection" (lots of snubs in that one) and James Caan in "The Killer Elite". Although Mr. Cann comported himself very well in "Way of the Gun" going up against those 1911s.

I don't remember Jim Rockford carrying a gun. As I recall, he was an ex-felon of some sort. I never knew why he was in prison, though. But, maybe he carried a gun at some point, I just don't recall it.

Caan used an S&W 640 - thought it was a SP 101 until I checked the IMFDB.

Also, Michael Douglas and Andy Garcia use Colt Python/DS/M66 in snub configurations in the opening shootout in Black Rain.

That is true! I believe that was in the pilot for the series

As much as I'm a fan of Rockford, I have to vote for someone else. Someone who hasn't been mentioned in five pages of replies... the folks that post here at GT must be a lot younger than me. Here is my vote... Police Woman Angie Dickinson.

He kept it in the cookie jar.

"Rockford" had gotten a pardon from the governor for his past crime(s) as memory serves. Guess that made him eligible to get a P.I. license and maybe have a firearm around.

+1.

I grew up in a non-gun, nearly anti-gun household, and did not generally make much note of the individual weapons carried by characters I saw in movies or on TV, but Steve McQueen's character in "Bullit" made such an impression that everything about the character became very, very cool, from his clothing, to his snubby and rig, to his Mustang. It was not until years later, however, that I knew exactly which model snubby, and I never felt a compelling need to copy Bullit exactly. Never bought a Mustang, either.

Well, if ya want to get technical, a true snubby has a small frame and a short barrel. The 2.4 inch Model 66 in the Gauntlet is a K Frame.

Ha! No one is old enough to remember "Felony Squad?" Howard Duff & Dennis Cole both had snubbies.

When we were kids, my sister ALWAYS watched that show just so she could drool over Dennis Cole.

Yes, he shot a perp in his own apartment building's laundry room near the beginning of one episode, during that show's second run circa 1968-1970. Pretty sure there was some gunplay on the earlier iteration of the series back in the 1950's too.

I recall one instance where Friday went to buy smokes in a all night laundry. He surprised a guy using a slip wire on a vending machine. the kid fired and when he returned fire the wounded guy fled, and later died.

I could probabl;ly think of better, but the first one that comes to mind is Dwayne Johnson in Faster. Movie has a good ole movie feeling to it too. If it were made in the 70's it'd likely have been far more memorable than today, but still worth seeing.

They've also got a 2-inch barreled S&W Model 15 .38 Special that he wore during his career, along with some framed letters testifying what an excellent shooter he was.

I was born there... Lived out west all my life though. BUT, most all my realitives are still there. My cousin used to sit on the curb of the podunk town he lives in and watch Buford get out of his car with that massive oak club in his hand and go in and out of the station with it. Down the road from my inlaws house in another podunk town, out in the pines, is one of the former night club gambling/dope joints old Buford used to go in and bust heads with that oak club.

I don't know what gun he carried, and never met him. But my outlaw cousins (yep we all got some) in thos back road bottoms out there have seen some heavy stuff then, "and now,"


They don't make oak clubs like they used to !
