    I am a big Magnum P.I. fan and I was surprised to know he carried a 9mm 1911 in that show. I knew it was a 1911 but I was figuring it to be a .45. Awesomeness! I want a 9mm 1911 so bad! Got the funds just gotta find the right one....
     
  3. It was probably going to be .45 but back then they had problems with the .45 blanks feeding properly so they used almost always a 9mm 1911.

    Tom Selleck was interviewed this week and indicated this was the eighth "Jesse Stone" production in the series. All I remember was four. Has anyone seen more than the four?

    I don't think they ever filmed all the real Parker Stones before starting in on posthumous clones. I wonder why.

    Any road, I ran and set the DVR for it in case I forget or am out for Sunday dinner.

    I've read all of the Jesse Stone books, and and seen all of the made-for-TV movies as well. Really a good role for Selleck -- a character with flaws (alcohol, busted marriage he can't let go of) and goodness (moral courage, unconditional loyalty to his officers, carries a 1911). The house he lives in is cool -- on the water, connected to land by footbridge (serious symbolism there). Mentor to "Suitcase" Simpson. The definition of "can't miss" TV.

    He used a S&W 1911PD in one of the earlier movies I think.

    He does like his Scotch too.

    He used a Gunsite 1911 in tonights episode. S&W most likely, but it definately had the Gunsite logo on the grips. You could see it really well towards the end of the show.

    Good episode. Jesse still fighting inner demons, but gets his job back. Needs some help at the office, but "Suitcase" reported for duty as the show closed.

    Now that Hasty is on the lam, what will become of his saleslady/Jesse's paramour?

    Rose coming back? Did ex-Chief Butler's dog get adopted?

    Couldn't believe there weren't more richochets in that gunfight aboard the rusting hulk.

    Last thing -- they gotta get rid of those lame PPD ballcaps.
     
  15. I'm always amazed how they get a 2 hour movie out of a one hour movie by showing him drinking coffee and staring at nothing, then drinking whiskey (and rattling the ice cubes) and staring at nothing, while a piano tinkles without even a melody.
    He must have a strong bladder to spend 60 minutes in a two hour movie drinking coffee, drinking whiskey, drinking coffee, drinking whiskey, and never relieving himself. Even the dog has trouble staying awake.:yawn:

    Drinking + staring = multitasker.

    Drinking + staring + wrestling inner demons = professional multitasker.
