To quote Harry himself, "...you're shit out of luck!" I too am trying to find
out exactly how that sound was made (I've spent many an hour at outdoor shooting
ranges, with .44 Mags going off on either side of me. The real gun DEFINITELY
sounds different from the movie gun. If nothing else, the reverberating boom of
the movie gun lasts just a little too long...like a ''BA-WOOOM'' rather than
If anyone knows EXACTLY how Warner Brothers Studio made that sound, they're not
telling. You'll get every single tidbit of info EXCEPT what you're looking for!
