Anyone who has seen NCFOM knows that it is a pretty great movie, and in that movie are some pretty great scenes with some pretty great shotguns.

I know Llewelyn Moss's shotgun was a cut-down Winchester 1897. Classic.

Anton Chigurh's weapon was a Beretta 390 with a "machined suppressor," to quote the book.

To those of you who have seen the movie: what was your favorite scene?

To those who haven't: get on it!

My favorite scene was anytime the shotgun with the silencer was fired. :lol: I wonder if those are easy to make? Probably would add a lot of weight to the end of the barrel. Plus, if you need to use a shotty, your probably not too worried about the noise.

just don't forget it also REQUIRES BATFE APPROVAL and $200 tax BEFORE building on a form 1

I like the scene where Chigurh confronts the motel lady. Thought she was a gonner for sure. The coin toss scene was gripping too.

Thanks for looking out Banshee. But, alas, I have no intention on ever silencing my shotty. I will be purchasing silencers for both my 9mm and the m4 I have yet to purchase. I think putting one on a tactical sniper rifle would be nice too.... I wonder how they effect accuracy and distance?

I especially liked when the man who hires wells asks woody harrelson (carson wells)
if anton chigurh is dangerous, and he says "compared to what, the bubonic plague?"

I haven't ever put a silencer on a rifle or shotgun so I really don't know much about it, but I do have one on a Submachine-gun. Neat toy. It is nice to shoot and not have to wear hearing protection. You can hear the brass hit the ground and the bullets strike the target.

3rd picture of the 5 - I don't get it. The hole in the silencer is a lot smaller than a 12 gauge hole. Wouldn't the shot just blow the thing off? What am I missing?

Looks like a goof to me. Or perhaps a limitation of whatever technology they're using to make that shotgun a blank-firing gun (if it is in fact a blank firing gun).

Hi, excuse my homemade .22 silencer for it's current condition, it's been used at least 100 rds, time to replace the rivets and the snuff canister soon, the whole unit is only 8 1/2 '' long and 1 3/4 '' in diameter, when shoot inside a building, it only sounds like a pellet gun.

I believe I'll take the Sergeant Schultz approach. " "I know nothing, I see nothing, and I say nothing!"

"Anton Chigurh's weapon was a Beretta 390 with a 'machined suppressor,' to quote the book."

I have also heard some say he uses a Rem 1187 in the film. Either way, the story takes place around 1980 (at least that's when the book that the film is based on takes place). And I don't think either of those shotguns were made until well after 1980.

There are dozens of other bloopers in the film too such as cars that were not made until after 1980 and signs on buildings that didn't exist in 1980.

But that's typical Hollywood dramatic license.

I still did, however, enjoy the film.

Kinda hard to ignore when the pictures and text are still up for the world to see.

Hey, dude-
You do know that that's illegal, right? I think it's a felony w/o BATF aproval. Now, I'm no fan of the "laws" governing things like this, but did it ever cross your mind that posting a picture of your homemade supressor on the 'net was less than a stellar idea?
