    My uncle Louie Caruso was one of the 1st to deliver the Maadi to them in New Mexico.

    He drove all night from Oregon when the stembridge movie rental place called desperately looking for them.

    He had 10 on his shelf and they paid him a bone smoking 700 extra to have him drive there and back.

    The CIA and cops stopped him when he left the set as they were asking him where he got his stuff.

    Yeah...he still has the receipt and a thank you note from John Milnius.

Really accurate portrayal especially considering when it was made.

    Another classic that deserves more attention if not for the amount of different weapons they used in the film.

    It was originally a play before it was a movie. It was filmed in Israel. They had all kinds of interesting props. Everything from muskets, Enfields, Type 2 AKs, to Israeli LB Fals. They used Ti-67 "Tiran" tanks though, which were Israeli captured T-55 tanks fitted with a 105mm main gun versus the 100mm among other mods. Dayle Dye who negotiated the purchase of the tanks was a consultant on the film. He may be better known for working on "Platoon" "BOB" and "Saving Private Ryan" etc.

    I also find "The Beast" interesting for some of the actors involved like Steven Bauer (Scarface, Breaking Bad) and Jason Patric, I didn't realize he was in "The Lost Boys" until I watched it a couple of times.

    Dye also said it was one of the few films where you can see an actual RPG used.

    Not this fake rocket bullshit..but the real rpg non explosive rounds.

    Filming showed it being used many times.

    1st time firing one showed to me that it has a kick to it.

    That's all pretty cool. Never knew any of that.

    I dug around and found the article on the writer. Pretty bad-ass.----> https://warisboring.com/the-playwrig...and-the-beast/

    Do you remember the BBQ sauce trade thing I done on here? People traded local BBQ sauces the rest of the country knew nothing about. We need to fire that up again for summer time cooking.

    I own a copy of The Beast - need to dig it out and rewatch it. The only thing about The Beast that I eyerolled was the bit where the knucklehead was drinking brake fluid since they didn't have vodka. I was like "how about a cup of petrol instead?"

    I really liked Jason Patric's portrayal of Jim Bowie in "The Alamo".

    No - that one I don't recall.

    I hardly ever eat BBQ. My new to me hunting lease might change that.

    I'm tempted to send him a thank you note as well, not that it will mean as much.

    In June 2011, I stopped in Las Vegas NM while driving from TX to Idaho. Found some of the movie locations.

    I did try to look for more, but like the HS was built up and different.

    Thanks for posting that.

    Some time ago someone went and toured most of the filming locations. I saved all of their pics, then the drive failed.

    The coolest pictures were of the fuel station where the tank was pulling in to fuel up. The pumps were still there.

    I've intended to visit Las Vegas, NM, but haven't made it yet.

    In 2004 - when the internet was new to me - I printed maps to what google said was Calumet, CO since I was going to Boulder, CO to pick up a rust free classic truck bed I'd bought on ebay. I was too ignorant to realize the town Calumet was fictional. The google map put me in the sticks somewhere South of Walsenburg LOL. I learned about Las Vegas, NM later. It was just as well as the Raton Pass was frozen over at the time. I had fun trying.

    My uncle Louie thinks a lot about it.... he was also one of the 1st to have the registered AK auto sears and he had about 20 of them I believed.

    One day while at his shop at Valiant Firearms in Cottage Grove, Oregon, the ATF came in about 1987 or so, and they asked him about the registered AK auto sears, and he said yeah.....I have them.....well, they needed to be in an AK as the ruling got changed so they are checking if he had them installed.

    He said and told them that they are at a gunsmith now and he is doing it.... and he is backed up......well they believed him and they gave him 30 days to show proof.

    Turns out, he only had 3 or 4 installed in AK's.. mostly Chinese.....and some Maadis and some Valmets....no Hungarians..... so he scoured the SGN and called left and right to get some AKs in and he got some extra Chinese and found some Maadis and even some Yugo AK's later I believe.

    He managed to shoehorn several of them into AK's before they came back again and they checked every one of them.

    He couldn't find anymore and he had about 3 left that didn't find a home but he found AK's that day of their visit and just shoehorned into the receiver.

    he actually glued it inside......they tested the action and they worked....until he did one where it wasn't glued very well and it fell out......

    he lost 2 sears and had to give them up......he was sad but was only out about 300 bucks on them.

    They also had to update the records that they are now married to those AK's with the receiver number on it.

    Sold them all back in the early 90's after everyone got all coo coo ga ga over Rambo in the late 80's. Still saving some until the mid 90's and then went into posties as that was easier as he ran out of inventory only having HK sears and AUG sears and weirdo CR stuff until 2003 when he gave up his SOT.

    But the Red Dawn is his most memorable and also doing a video on a news channel on how to get cans and machine guns... reporter sat down with him and they talked about it and the interview was fully aired in southern Oregon. That was good for business.

    Do check it out, because its not that bad of a movie, and is a snapshot of some of what people thought about in the 1980s. Also, check out "The Beast" as well if you get a chance.

    It's one of the best movies to come out of the 80's that nobody really knows about.
