Girls With Guns In Cinema And Television is acollection of images of women in film and on television holding firearms, sorted by film/show title, weapon, IMDB ranking (needs some updating...Sticks got a 9.9?), and more. Scroll down past the lengthy news updates to get to the actual archives. (The site itself SFW but some of the images linked aren't. Beware!)

So, some people find the thought of a "girl with a gun" arousing/appealing?

Sounds like ultra-S&M to me:
"I'll spank you if you don't do ..."
to
"I'll whip you if you don't do ..."
to
"I'll pop a cap in you if you don't do ..."

Sorry, but I hate this whole concept. Sex and violence are inextricably (and unfortunately) enmeshed already, and this just fans the flames. Women with guns are supposed to be sexy? Yuck.

See, the guns are like phallic symbols so this is really empowering the women.

Or not.

I don't really have a problem with these pics. I like guns, I like to shoot. I like women. Ergo, women shooting guns should be a nice combination. There's a site called ActionGirls that had a feature of Veronika Zemanova shooting all kinds of guns while in various states of nudity. It was good viewing action!

Wow - he's collected and categorized an incredible number of images. But apparently this left no time to include basic website navigation features. Ugh.

Come on now. Who doesn't find La Femme Nikita (original french release) the sexiest chic on record? She started it all in the realms of sweet, loving, survivalist, and criminal dead aim working for the good cause.

I'd rather have the girl that is good, but bad on the inside than the girl that is just bad all around.

Wow.. a smoking naked chick next to a truck, with a gun and a dead deer..
Must be redneck's paradise.

Viomeda: Hong Kong was churning out girls with guns pics long before Besson's Le Femme Nikita. I'm sure Aliens, Bonnie and Clyde and such gems as Truck Stop Momma qualify as well although I admit they are not the same quality of Besson's work.

On the violent female thread it used to be that women in American movies would take on masculine characteristics as part of their film transformation. Chinese women however, just kicked ass and then went back to fitting a certain stereotype. I always found that odd.

I still think Angels and Pink Force Commando define the girls with guns movie genre.

Many of the pics that I looked at could be movie posters. :)
