I saw this thread posted at another website, instead of replying to it there, where I was not registered, I thought I post it here, and see what type of response I get. What are the "coolest" guns you've ever seen in a film? Here's mine.
That Peckwood Volley Gun Richard Widmark carries in "The Alamo."
That tie tac deringer Bob Cummings wears in "The Barefoot Mailman."
And that windup pistol the villain uses in "The Fabulous World of Jules Verne."
And, of course, any gatling gun. "Get outta my way! I'm goin' to crank this baby up and let it spit.!" Which can be glimpsed in . . .
Four Feathers (2002)
The New Maverick
The Northwest Mounted Police
Only the Valiant
Rooster Cogburn
Siege at Red River
Vera Cruz
The War Wagon
The Wild, Wild West (the film)
and The Wild, Wild West (the TV series)

Reggie's quadruple-barrell shotgun from the Phantasm movies.

The pulse rifle from Aliens, especially when Ripley tapes a flame thrower to it. Has any gun in a movie ever sounded cooler?

Antonio Banderas' sweet grenade launcher-looking shotgun from Desperado.

Jesse Ventura's mini-gun in Predator, if only for the coolness of him blowing away 3 guys in under 2 seconds.

And I second all of JR's choices, ESPECIALLY the USCMC M-41-A Pulse Rifle standard issue, with over-under 30mm pump-action grenade launcher (I've seen that movie too many f**king times).

We used to play "Star Frontiers" many years ago and made rules for the lordly pulse rifle.  My vote definitely goes for it.

The rotary grenade launchers used by George Kennedy and his buddy in "Radioactive Dreams."

Another to mention is the gun used by Gene Simmons in "Runaway."

It is a video game, but I always loved the buzzsaw gun from the Doom II Chaos Deathmatch mod.  Hey, it shoots circular saw blades that bounce off of walls!  Catch two or three people in a narrow corridor and it was a serious mess.

Finally, there are few weapons that look meaner than a tactical 12-gauge pump shotgun with a folding stock.  Half of that meanness is knowing what it can do to a person.

You got my agreement there. Not amovie out there that makes firepower hardware look so beautiful as ALIENS (which is my all time fave).

I like the machine gun/flame thrower/ rocket launcher/ gas guns from Fortress. I also like Django's machine gun. Incidently does anyone know what type of machine gun Django used. The same one was used in A Fistful of Dollars.

"Give me a good blaster at my side any day."  - H. Solo

And although it had terrible stopping power, minimal rate of fire, and only held two bullets, you have to admit that John Malkovich's metal detector-proof wooden gun in "The Line of Fire" was pretty neat.  I especially liked how he smuggled the bullets in a rabbit's foot key chain.

Pulse rifle is good. Starship troopers mountain clearing gun at end of flick looks promising. Oh...Gatling guns in "Rough Riders", too.
....Humm...why not a Gatling Pulse rifle? Too much of a good thing?

I like the weird rotating 4 barrel gun that Van Damme uses in CYBORG.  Not because it is particularly useful, but I like the look of it.  I always go for those weird make-shift guns in post-apocalypse movies.

First, how could none of you remember the famous line in a great movie. "I need guns, lots of guns" and boy did he get them.

I have to give another holler out to Predator, for both the chain saw gun and the scene in which they blow away the 2 acres of rain forest in a minute. And the Predator himself had some damn cool guns too.


Lastly, that giant "Zeuss Cannon" in the Final Fantasy movie. Wha Boom!

I like James Bond's Walther PPK, it's slek, elegant, and goes well with a dinner jacket.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
