Know Your Weapons: The MAS 49/56

29 mph winds? I would have called it and came back when the Hurricane was gone, but still a decent shoot.

Pay Attention, you just might learn something.

 

The ‘Heat’ Course of Fire

In the pantheon of Heist movies, it does not get any better than Michael Mann’s 1995’s Heat.

(Yes it stars that lib-tard crybaby Robert De Niro but it also starred Al Pacino, Val Kilmer and Tom Sizemore, so it evens itself out.)

Michael Mann’s movies are known for intense firearm realism, not only in their manual of arms but also in the tactics used. This can be seen in the gun battle after the Bank Robbery in Heat which was choreographed by an ex-SAS Commando.

You can also see some nifty training and tactics in Thief (1981), Collateral (2004) and Miami Vice (2006) to name a few.

Anyways, the guys over at Forgotten Weapons decided to make the shootout in Heat into a Course of Fire, complete with the heavy bags of “money”. 🤠

Fun Watch!
