It did for me. Also, the movie Stargate with Kurt Russell. These movie got me really interested in the MP5. Now with Mission Impossible 3 and Die Hard 4, I want an UMP. Damn Movies!!!! LOL.I wonder if the sale of MP5 model climbed sharply after Die Hard played in the theater!
Movies/television have a significant impact on firearms enthusiasm.
1. Dirty Harry (S&W .44 Magnum);
2. Raw Deal/Predator (HK94/MP5);
3. Lethal Weapon (Beretta 92);
4. Stargate SG1 (FN PS90), etc.
I was considering buying a PPK just because of James Bond, but in the end, I decided that I already had like 800 rounds of 9mm in my apt and didn't want to buy a new caliber. Which is why I decided to buy a P7M8 It's not a P7M7, but it's a little closer to Hans, which I can live withWhat about the Mini gun? Or that contraption from Cobra? But the ppk probably has had the most effect, given it's time span.
