Two scenes come to mind for the venerable M60: The first is one of my favorite childhood movies of all time, First Blood. Watching John Rambo eradicate that town in Washington with that M60 he swiped out of the back of the deuce-and-a-half was pure poetry!
The second was Full Metal Jacket and my bro Animal Mother charging headlong into the breech.
Pretty cool little piece of history.

Pay Attention, you just might learn something.
