    It's never stated if Vincent served at all. However, in the making of the film documentary on the DVD, Michael Mann (the film's director), does state that Vincent is former Special Forces. And there was a former SAS operator who trained Tom Cruise how to use the USP45.

    Aside from the "pimp's gun," I would actually have to agree with your point... a standard size combat gun is more realistic for his character.

    I know there is a video on youtube detailing Mr. Cruise's training. Kinda cool. Larry Vickers does his own video breaking down the Mozambique - also very cool. All the more impressive that Michael Mann wanted to instill a sense of realism into the scene.

    Oh yeah. Saw that video. In the film's alley way "yo, homey" gunfight, Cruise (aka Vincent) took out both his targets in 1.25 sec. Vickers ran the same scenario and did it in 1.5 sec. That's way too fast for us mere mortals!

    He was not sure they had his case. And I think the whole point of the movie was that he was not a bad guy, and did not like shooting normal people.
