Been meaning to watch that movie when I get the time.
For those of us who don’t read minds, the movie clip is from
The story of the cops who finished off Bonnie and Clyde.
Hopefully it’s historically accurate and not the usual Hollywood drivel.
For many of us, it’s hard to remember than once upon a time in America, anyone could walk into a gun store and leave with as many guns as they wanted, with a few exceptions, with no more hassle than buying a garden tool.
That sounds nice, I was born in '89 I might be a few decades too late.
No. You sir, are incorrect and perhaps missed this thread’s title. That is video of me buying guns at the gun store.
No seriously, I didn’t think to put the name in since it was in the YT title. I’ll do better next time.
Also, if any of you’ve not seen the movie I’d highly recommend it. From everything I’ve read, they did a good job of keeping at least the firearms accurate to the time period. Here’s the article I saw before creating this thread…

Oohhhh, that Thompson and Bar.
I’ve started watching it and really like it.
I just watched Heat again…that movie makes me want shoot. Think im going to call in tomorrow and go rob a…errr…goto the range.
19 OR 18?
2089 ,I traveled back in time to piss the world off.
I have a single shot Marlin 22 that I got with 6 1/2 books of United Stamps. For you young whipersnappers, to get customer loyalty grocery stores used to give out a certain number of stamps per dollars spent. The first that I saw were S&H Green stamps. You got books to stick them in and then redeemed them from the catalog from the stamp company. United came along to compete so one chain would offer S&H and the competitor had United. We got all kinds of household stuff that way.
You would have traveled “Forward” in time to reach 2089
Not if im from 2089
But if you was from that era, you’d be showin us Death rays and lazer guns instead of the poodle shooters we have now.
Not if the world is a wasteland
Some places already are.
I watched the movie after seeing the clip here.
It was really cool and a side of the Bonnie and Clyde saga you dont see.
The guns were accurate for the period and I really like how they brought out the Monitor in the movie.
They did point out is was a BAR version from Colt as well.
The movie is I will say 85% accurate as to what happened which is very good for the Hollywoods Types.
I would bet Costner had some say in that.
Well worth the watch though, and then watch the American Experience about B&C and see the real saga.
My wife is the one that found that movie for us to watch , a very well made flick !
S&H stamps , ohhh the stuff that you could get , I was so happy as a kid to carry those for my Grandmother and then paste them into the book when we got home and then help her with “suggestions” on what we could save up for.
Finally got to finish the movie last night. Really liked it.
