Untouchables is one of my favorite movies with so many memorable scenes.

Side note: If you have Paramount Plus, Untouchables is streaming.



One of my favorite scenes is Stone taking the hostage shot in the train station.

You think you could make that shot?

Think it would be different if you're standing but laying with your back on the ground is similar to shooting a rifle in prone (minus elbow support).

Just laying flat eliminates a lot of variables and body movement.



Such a great movie scene.

Easy peasy, in a movie.

In real life?  That’s a different story.

My local indoor range apparently has a bug up their ass and gets irritated when I lay down to replicate this attempt in the firing bay.

lol, now I want to try it. I think he was shooting single action, hard to tell on my phone.

No.

I'd probably shoot the hostage, Speed (1994) style.

I actually paused watching the movie on HD to make this post.

The hammer is back.

I have an old SW Model 36 from the 60s and that single action shot is soo smooth. Like oily ball bearings.

Also realized the baddy has a Star Model B, so even if he tried to kill the hostage it would have likely jammed.

For period correct authenticity, you'll want a .38 M&P, the precursor to the Model 10. (That does appear to be a Model 10 in his hands, though. It doesn't appear to have the fifth screw.) The M&P didn't get the Model 10 moniker until 1957.

Mine was built sometime in the early 1920's. At the same time, my great, great-grandfather was a Pinkerton detective in Chicago.

I practiced a lot of DA revolver shooting.  B/C of the extractor I knew the gun wasn't a 1911 but didn't know what it was.  thanks.

With those sights maybe (probably) not but with a good front and rear sight I think I could.

Ballpark, what's the range and the target area?  Guessing 10-12 yds.  Uphill.  4" diameter target (mouth of Bad Guy, as stated).

I shoot that all the time one-handed with my 1911.  Stakes are a little lower though, and it's neither uphill, nor am I lying down.

They randomly pop up in movies from time to time.

It was the same deal with Pulp Fiction. Always thought the nickle semi-auto was a 1911 and didn't realize it was a Star B until watching it on HD and spotting the extractor.

Yep. While they're not as accurate as the adjustable sights on the K-38 Target Masterpiece (later, the Model 14), they're plenty accurate for most defensive shots.

Correct, a S&W M&P Model of 1905 4th Change would be period correct for the movie.

Mine was shipped from S&W in June, 1924. It's wholesale price then was $19.37 ($349.36 in 2024)

Nice looking revolver.

My other M&P 1905 4th Change has a 5" barrel. It was originally blued, but someone nickel plated the frame and barrel, leaving the cylinder alone. It also had a set of Franzite faux stag grips installed.

Sure, after the shot. Not much to jam when you've got a round in the chamber and hammer cocked.
