    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    He doesn't take the place of Jerry, but then again no one really could in the shooting community.

    I just hope that Hollywood doesn't fluff it up. They have a bad habit about taking something good and then making sequel after sequel until it sucks so bad that it makes a mockery of the original.

    It's the same director so I don't think it'll flop but it's literally got a huge act to follow. Outdoing the first one will be quite the trick. It's one of my favorites.

    I like that the hotel is in part 2 -- it became a character in the first movie.  Also glad Ian McShane is in the cast again.

    Hey now.

    I haven't watched the first one either, and I'm clean shaven and know how to change a tire... and my beers don't have to be microbrews.

    Now I have the right to be angry on two levels. One, I have enough trouble as it is defending my WTA Hipster title and two, John Wick is a fantastic movie.

    I mean, I don't watch movies, but I still watched the first one. Of course it was a year after it had come out, just to be post ironic  :cool.

    Nah, screw that noise. I might be a hipster, but I'm a hipster on a budget. I wait until they come out in theatre, then DVD, then I wait for the price to go down  :neener.

    My youngest brother (not SLM) always waits till the DVD is out. He hates theater crowds and I'm beginning to lean that way as I get older and crankier. I've missed quite a few lately and will wait for the DVD's. The new Star Wars and John Wick2 will be the exceptions.
