My Name Is Bruce (2007)

My Name Is Bruce is a 2007 independent horror comedy that satirizes the career of B-Movie actor Bruce Campbell of The Evil Dead fame. In the film, a desperate town hires the actor to be their monster hunter, as an ancient Chinese Demon wreaks havoc on their lives. Bruce Campbell (portraying a version of himself) agrees, thinking it is some sort of movie or PR gig. Little does he realize that he is really being hired to fight a real monster. In order to maximize the film's budget, Campbell produced and directed the feature on and around his own property in Oregon.

This movie premiered at the Ashland Film Festival in 2007, however, it had problems getting a release date in the United States for a long time. Despite having had many "premiere showings" across the country (one in San Francisco as late as Dec 2008), by January 2009, the DVD rights had only been sold in the European territories. Finally, the American DVD was released (with neither fanfare nor advertising) to the U.S. DVD market in February 2009.


The following weapons were used in the film My Name Is Bruce:

Contents


Pistol

AMT Hardballer Longslide

Bruce Campbell (portraying himself) uses an AMT Hardballer to great effect during the first assault on the monster (never removing the sales tag from the gun).

Bruce Campbell wields an AMT Hardballer Longslide M1911 (it even has the sales tag on the gun identifying the make and model). Unfortunately, he shows poor gun safety as he talks, something which bothers the town's mayor (to the left). In this scene, he refers to his weapon as a "31 Longbow" prompting the gun store owner to whisper "It's a .45 long slide!"

Shotguns

Parker Double Barreled Shotgun

A 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun is displayed by the town's gun shop owner and checked out by Bruce Campbell. The store owner, Frank, calls it a "Parker Shotgun". The shotgun eventually ends up in the hands of another townsperson.

J.C. Higgins Model 20 Shotgun

A J.C. Higgins Model 20 shotgun is seen in a gun display behind Frank.

Frank the gun shop owner prepares the Parker shotgun to hand to Bruce Campbell. Behind him is a J.C. Higgins Model 20 Shotgun, a milled receiver AK-47, and an M14 (probably an M1A semi-auto rifle). From a production design standpoint, this has to be one of the most "low rent" representations of a gun store in a film. The long guns are just propped up against the wall in cubby holes with no racks to hold them in place.

AK-47 (Milled Receiver)

What appears to be an AK rifle is seen on the wall of the gun store. It could be a Poly Technologies Legend or one of the recent U.S. made receiver built guns.

Poly Technologies AK-47 - 7.62x39mm. This is the commercial clone of the original Type III AK-47 and is the most used in American films and shows when showing the milled receiver AK-47
The AK is seen between the J.C. Higgins Model 20 and M14-type rifle.
The AK is later seen in the hands of a townsperson at the far right.

M14 Rifle

What appears to be an M14 or clone is seen on the wall of the gun store.

The M14-type rifle is seen to the right of the AK.

Marlin Model 336C

Bruce uses (or tries to use) a Marlin Model 336C lever-action rifle, but has difficulties.

Bruce tries to shoot his Marlin 336C rifle, but it doesn't function.
Of course, the reason Bruce's Marlin 336C rifle doesn't fire is that he still has the safety on.

Other

Frank's Gun Store

Frank's gun shop has several rifles and shotguns, along with several handguns seen in a glass display case when the town holds an impromptu meeting. Precise identification of makes and models can't be determined from this shot. The four that are best seen are, from left to right, a stainless Colt Commander with pearl grips, a Ruger SP101, second gen full-sized Glock, and an unknown Smith & Wesson revolver.

A variety of handguns can be seen in the glass case behind Bruce Campbell.
