Anyone notice the unique way Bruce Willis holds his Handguns?

He has his finger over the trigger guard, in all movies from Die Hard to Live Free or Die Hard.

Do you think he's been trained by a professional, and do you think he has a good grip?

Beretta's 92F and 92FS have the squared trigger guard that allow you to do what he does. I have tried it, but I wasn't use to it. It works for him, he may be an actor but I wouldn't want to get into real gunfight with him. --Predator20 19:59, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
According to IMDB, Willis does own firearms in real life and is a firm supporter of the right to bear arms.
He is shooting in similar manner than a Eric Grauffel uses. I think Bruce was trained by some good shooters. user:Ripp

Grip Pt.2

As commonly seen with David Caruso of CSI: Miami, Do you think Bruce is left handed but right eye dominant?

He grips with his Left and supports with his Right, and seems to level his Right eye with the Sights.

I do that when I shoot pistols. I'm right handed but I level the sights with my left eye. Haha maybe I've been watching too much Bruce Willis movies

That's how I shoot pistols too, I'm right handed and I level the sights with my left eye with both eyes open. - Mr. Wolf 19:30, 27 April 2011 (CDT)

Music Videos

Somebody put a credit that Bruce used a Taurus Raging Bull in the Gorillaz - Stylo music video, but I don't think we're adding music videos to the categories. --Ben41 18:06, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

++ That is a fantastic video though, I have a still from it that finely displays the revolver in question. [1] -Kaykay

I thought I had written something here about putting it up (because I was the one who put credit). I guess I must have closed the page down without saving the changes or something... Still, surely if there is a section for anime then there should be a section for music videos? Why shouldn't they count? Timaman 15:12, 31 December 2011 (CST)

Out of EX3

It seems Willis is out of The Expendables 3. Seems that he wanted 1 million dollars per day for a 4 day shoot, and left when he was only offered three for the whole shoot. That's Hollywood for ya... --Warejaws (talk) 22:27, 8 August 2013 (EDT)

  • When Charles Bronson made Raid on Entebbe he demanded and received over a million dollars per day for when he shot his brief scene as the Isreali general. The head of the production went to see Chuckles to get him to reduce his fee and asked 'Don't you think a million dollars is a lot to pay a person for one day's work?' Charles Bronson replied 'You're not paying me for the one day of shooting, you're paying me for the twenty years of work I had to do to get here'Foofbun (talk) 18:12, 9 August 2013 (EDT)
That's one way to look at it. I like Willis, but 4 million for a couple of days work? Get out of here. I'm actually glad that he's out the the second sequel, seeing as it gave Harrison Ford the opportunity to hop along. --Warejaws (talk) 18:24, 9 August 2013 (EDT)
If you're going to pay someone that much money, it should be so you can market the hell out of that fact. Oh well, it's not like Willis is wanting for either money or work. --Funkychinaman (talk) 18:28, 9 August 2013 (EDT)
After P.O.S. movies like Die Hard 5 and GI Joe 2 Willis shoulda been happy to finally play in a better (?) movie. - bozitojugg3rn4ut (talk) 17:18, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
The "better movie" being the one written by and starring Sylvester Stallone? --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:27, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
At least he's been nominated for an academy award, for his writing, I might add... Oh, and his acting... --Warejaws (talk) 17:30, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
Oh, I know, for Rocky, which was genuinely great. It's absolutely inexplicable. This is the same man who later wrote Staying Alive, Rhinestone, Cobra, and Over the Top in four consecutive years. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:48, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
Well... But... Okay, you got me there. But it's not like Willis (or most Hollywood action stars) haven't had a few stinkers. --Warejaws (talk) 17:52, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
I thought GI Goe 2 was pretty good (particularly the extended cut on DVD that puts stuff back in the right order, would probably rate it as better than Ex 2), however Willis was a weak point of it for me (along with Ray Stevenson's "American" accent). Can anyone explain to me what was up with the "Brenda" thing (is it a reference to something?), best explanation I can find is that he kept calling both Adrianne Palicki and her character that (which apparently really annoyed her) to the point where they just wrote it in to add to the friction. --commando552 (talk) 17:43, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
No idea, I was wondering the "Brenda" thing myself. And yeah, the Extended Action Cut almost redeemed the film (they should've kept Capt. Tater alive and running, just sayin')... Almost. --Warejaws (talk) 17:52, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
