This holiday season, thousands of Americans will flock to theaters to see Quentin Tarantino’s newest epic, The Hateful Eight. Judging by the trailer and the director’s existing oeuvre, it’s safe to assume there will be no shortage of bullets flying in all directions.

In a year plagued by mass shootings, Tarantino’s new film arrives with renewed focus on violence and the place of guns in American society. To get a handle on just how large a role guns play in the director’s films, TIME consulted the Internet Movie Firearms Database, a crowd-sourced site that exhaustively catalogues the exact make and model of every gun used in a major film. The director has made use of 77 firearms in his seven major films, including a whopping 21 in 2009’s World War II revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds. Below you can see each gun used in each movie (The Hateful Eight is not yet included).
