Anyone know what year this picture is from?  That phone is definitely analog or just a cordless but, still looks old cordless.
Must be around the time of "Bridges of Madison Co."

Questions & Answers / Taking aim!!!

I want to start my first post with this question.  I have read that Clint and Lee Van Cleef and others, for that matter, were very proficient with their sidearms, a fact that is evedent in their movies, the quick draws and ability to hit the target.  But does anyone know just HOW accurate in real life they were?  Could they really shoot that well or was it just all Hollywood imagery?
This is a question that has popped up among my  friends from time to time but no one seems to have been privy to the answer.
It is obvious that practice with the weapon's handling is  essential but the real accuracy is the question.  Do/did any of our heroes have weaponry interests in their personal lives?

Sorry folks, but I am new here and this is my first post so bear with me while I get the feel for this stuff. 
I first wanted to wish Mr Eastwood a happy birthday.  79 years is indeed a milestone this day and age.  So many of the really great talents from back in the day have already gone or are close to it but, Clint seems to be showing us that you can't keep a good man down.
I have liked Clint since the sixties when the Spaghetti Western was in vogue.  Yes the Leone films were the start for me.  I was a kid then but, my older brother got me hooked. 
My real love has always been Lee Van Cleef and I am an insatiable fan of Lee's.
I have pondered many questions about the era of films that Clint and Lee teamed in.  Even from the times when they worked in television on shows like Rawhide, Maverick and others. I have followed, as much as possible, the body of work of many great character actors.  Clint has been in a very repsectable  league and I have always wanted to let him know how much I, and I'm sure many, many others, love and appreciate him for his work and his contributions not just as an actor but in many endeavors he has persued. 
You have to hand it to Clint who has not only been such a great actor but also director, producer, musician, writer, community activist the list is long I'm sure you get the gist.
I congratulate Clint on his success and hope he has many more years to gift us with his talent and hard work.
Cheers to you Mr Eastwood !!!
Have the happiest of birthdays.
