    OK, well, I threw out my back somehow. Doctor tells me I pulled some muscle attached to my rib cage, shoulder blade or diaphram or some such crap. Whatever I did, breathing and moving are two very difficult activities right now. I plan to stop by Block Buster on the way home and load up on movies to watch while I'm flat on my back for the next two days. Who can recommend to me some gun-o-centric cinema to pass my hours until Monday?

    <sigh>

    ...a wasted weekend.

    It's not all gun-o-centric, but you can't go wrong with Stallone kicking butt in "Cobra". How about the Governator in "Commando"?

    Have you seen the Ban of Brothers series already? I watched the whole thing after knee surgery.

    Lazy weekends are always about the westerns. Checkout "Last Train from Gun Hill" with Kurt Douglas.

    That was good? I considered seeing it in theaters, but never got around to it.

    I think it is more anti-international gun trade.

    Saving Private Ryan is good. Unforgiven too, although not a ton of blasting in that movie. Red Dawn maybe? Eat that old timers! :p We Were Soldiers, that's a good one too.

    There, that's my contribution.

    Let's try to keep this realistic and all.

    DAWN OF THE DEAD.

    If you finish it and last two weeks without buying at least one SHTF weapon you might as well just join the Brady Bunch.

    I watch that movie every time I'm unsure if I really "need" another gun or not. I always "need" another gun. Damn zombies are worse than anything.

    You know you're a gun nut when you give your domicile a zombie proof rating.

    :D

    Yeah. Keeping 3,000 rounds of 7.62 doesn't really seem like that much when you convince your significant other you can only kill with a direct head-shot.

    Sounds like a good day for Clint's "Dirty Harry" saga

    or maybe even Charles Bronson vigilante

    OK, so they're all war movies, but they're all GOOD war movies. And that's just the DVDs on one shelf of my "war movie" collection.
