Sounds like Red Buttons in the 1960's remake of "Stagecoach" starring Mike Connors, Bing Crosby & Ann Margaret

Actually Mel Gibson, Greg Henry, Lucy Liu, James Colburn, Kris Kristofferson and Deborah Unger in "Payback" (1999).
Mel gets bullets dug out of his back -- the doctor is "sedated" with whiskey, Mel is stone sober.

Story Line: Porter is bad, but his neighbours are worse. Street-wise and tough, an ex-marine, he is betrayed by a one-time partner, and shot in the back by his junkie wife. He survives and returns, looking to recover his share from the robbery of an Asian crime gang. The money has passed into the hands of "the Outfit", a slick gangster organisation that runs the city. He has to make his way through a world populated by heroin dealers, prostitutes, sado-masochists, gunmen and crooked cops, a place where torture is a way of life. His only friend is a former employer, a prostitute, and her loyalty is in question, given she now works for the Outfit. He makes good early progress, but then falls into the hands of Fairfax, the crime boss.

Oh I remember now. Isn't that the Mel Gibson movie where he kills a lot of people?

No. Wait. That's EVERY Mel Gibson movie!

I've got a little time to think about a stand for my JMP, I'll probably wait until it's assembled and I start using it before I decide on something but I wonder if anyone is using the MFT/Kapex as a stand? It seems about the right size and I would be able to fold it & stow it when I'm not using the JMP. It seems it may have a bit smaller footprint than the BCT stand.

Roger Savatteri had his JMP on one of the old smaller MFTs, and has it bolted to the wall. Works great, though it's dedicated to the JMP.

Not sure what he's doing now.

I like the idea of being able to fold the stand when not in use.

Ron, if you use anything other than the Bridge City stand, it had better be just as stiff, or anchored to something. It wouldn't have to be a permanent anchor, but any MFT will need to be stabilized in some way.
