Re: The Bond Armory

@ Joshua, of the revolvers Bond used in the novels, besides the Colt Police Positive, He was also used a Smith & Wesson Centennial Airweight in Dr. No. Major Boothroyd issues it along side the PPK for long range work. It later reappears in The Spy Who Loved Me as ASP mentioned.  Additionally Bond uses a Savage 99F rifle in the short story For Your Eyes Only, a Thompson Submachine gun in The Spy Loved Me(used during an operation in Canada to locate SPECTRE, he mentions it to Vivienne Michel.) and  an International Experimental target rifle built by Winchester in The Living Daylights.

Re: The Bond Armory

Yes, I forgot about the rifle. If I remember correctly I think Bond also had one in 'From A View To A Kill?'

The number of guns means that I must only have one frame. My wife would surely not allow anything else!

Re: The Bond Armory

@ Joshua, the only gun used by Bond in From A View To A Kill is an Colt M1911A1.  He does mention using a Remington .30-30 rifle to Rene Mathis in Casino Royale. During the Second World War, Bond and a colleague both used Remington's during the assassination of a Japanese cipher expert in New York City's Rockefeller Center. Bond also has taken weapons from various henchman at times when his own gun was either taken or unloaded. In Live And Let Die, he takes a Colt Detective Special from Tee Hee and uses it to aid in his escape. He also uses a S&W Model 10 taken from Dr. No's men during his escape from Crab Key.

Thank you. It is some time since I listened to the audio book. I thought Bond was carrying a rifle or sub machine gun when he was waiting at the enemy hide out. Thank you for correcting me.

Re: The Bond Armory

Awesome video, Ray. I love seeing Bond's personal effects gathered together like this. It would be cool to see the other prop collectors here post pics of their carry items. In my wallet, I keep one of those credit card gizmos that folds into a knife. It certainly comes in handy when working in a warehouse.

btw Thanks for showing the mini Maglite. I hadn't discovered that prop yet.

Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

Those credit card knives are incredibly handy and surprisingly sharp! If  i didn't make the switch to the minimalist wallet, i'd probably carry one for redundancy, two is one, one is none! I'd be curious as well too see what others carried, like i said in the video, any Bond items we missed that would make great EDC items?

Re: The Bond Armory

Here’s my stuff, nothing really Bond in there except the 2004 black Bond collection DuPont fountain pen.  I have the Pell money clip, but prefer the stainless Purdey as it retains more of a spring compared to silver.  Although I only smoke the occasional cigar, I still carry a lighter.  I suppose that can be classed as Bondian as he used this model in TND, but that was gold plated.  The knife is a Spyderco PITS.  The second pen is a Conway Stuart Churchill fountain pen, and the flashlight is a 800 lumen Fenix.  OK, there’s another Bond item there, the Leatherman Rebar is in a DM Bullard Walther PPS mag holder.  Bond used them in Carte Blanche.

Few more bits on my key ring that are Bond related.  I keep my Globetrotter luggage keys on my car key fob along with a small flash drive. My main keys have a really bright USB chargeable Fenix led light with is really bright and lasts for 14 hours on the lowest setting or 6 on the highest.  I use this loads at night and I charge it about twice a year if that. There’s also a Victorinox small knife/scissors/file combo and SPECTRE ring.

Good to know about that Fenix key ring light. I have a couple of their other products and am a fan.

And I had to laugh when I saw the Spectre ring. Mine also ended up on my key ring!

Re: The Bond Armory

Gents, my apologies if this was covered in another thread, but I figured I'd share share belated details about Walther's announcement of the re-release of the PPK series at SHOT Show 2019.

Yes, I know it's the extended beavertail model in .380.  But hey, after a 7 year PPK production hiatus, it's nice to know Walther still cares.  Consider it an affordable alternative with provenance.

The AMEX Centurion Card would qualify as a Bond item as he used it in QOS.
