“Ever use a handgun, Bill?” asks McClane.

“I spent a weekend at a combat ranch,” says Hans, “You know that game with the guns that shoot red paint? Probably seems kinda stupid to you.” McClane checks the barrel and makes sure the action on the pistol is operating.

“Well,” says McClane, holding out the pistol to Hans, “time for the real thing, Bill.”

Hans looks at the gun, then looks back at McClane as he takes it in his hand.

“All you gotta do is pull the trigger,” explains McClane. “Come on,” he says, leading them off the floor.

Hans drops his cigarette on the floor and steps on it with his shoe. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a walkie talkie.

Auf dreiunddreißig Stock. Komm [33rd floor – Come]” says Hans, aiming the gun at McClane’s head.  “Put down the gun,” he says to McClane, “and give me my detonators.”

McClane turns around, and takes a drag on his cigarette.  “Well, well, well,” says John.
