I recently bought the movie "The Replacement Killers" from Wal Mart for $5. I realized during the gunfight at the end of the movie that the head badguy was using a fullsize P88. I don't think I have ever seen a P88 in any other movie. Anybody had any other P88 (or P88C) movie sightings?

NOT, a "movie sighting"- but, a "radio hearing" on a Podcast radio show, "Letter to America" broadcast from the "red-light district" in Belfast, Ireland. It's midnight and an American named Joe Lett is host. Kristeen O Sullivan is guest.

Kristeen IS offended that, "... there is a gun on the table". Joe responds that He only has a right and reason to defend himself and cannot help but describe the handgun as being, " ... a Walther P 88 Compact, the finest handgun in the world." Kristeen (not impressed) retorts, "... and you're bringing your American gun culture here?!?" Joe announces however that he is removing the magazine from the pistol, to put her at some ease- and the whole thing continues bizarrely...

I don't have a direct link, but you can find all this stuff and "hear" this particular broadcast by googleing in searchwords: Jett Loe Walther P 88 Compact

This episode is found on entries 26 and/or 27, and is "Chapter 8" on the Letters to America- Podcast Directory.

some cool stuff,

PS- Was the "movie" as good as the "gun"?

Oops,- I notice that my 1st mention of radio host JETT LOE's name- I transposed his first and last names.
And then later refered to Jett as "Joe". Sorry.

I think Jett is "right" though, about the P88 C.

The movie is a pretty fun shoot em up movie. For $5.00 it was worth buying. Also, Mira Sorvino is in it so that's a plus.
