Is there a way you can make a monster fire or attack at something.

Make the monster's target the name of the thing you want it to attack.

Yes, it's called teh SDK. Software Developer's Kit.

you can get it at planethalflife.

http://www.planethalflife.com/
have a look around there and you might find it.
though, the download is quite big, about: 11mb
and here's how you get a monster to attack something:
if you want the thing to break when the monster hits it, set it as a func_breakable. and put it's name to whatever you want.
in the monsters target field put the name of your object there.
then put a scripted_sequence with the attack animation.
and you could trigger_once it so it happens when the player is near.

so, when the monster does his animation, the thing will break.

the monster's target- your object

and the monster does the obvious thing to it. he breaks it.

You don't really need the SDK unless you know a fair deal of C++ and are a mod coder. You can get it from the ERC, afaik, and bypass the fileplanet queue. It IS NOT the complete source for the game. It has the parts of the source that are useful to coders and developers.
then put a scripted_sequence with the attack animation.
and you could trigger_once it so it happens when the player is near.
The scripted_sequence is unnecessary. Just targeting the object will cause the monster to attack the item until it breaks, in the case of a func_breakable, thus playing an attack animation.

Hes meaning the scriptted_sequence to make something like... "Barney goes and hits the glass(then it targets it and breaks). When i asked the question up there. i was meaning, is there a way to make barney walk to a place and make him shoot the player like once or twice..

Barney will not attack the player under normal Half-Life. You need the Spirit of Half-Life Mod, which is essentially an extension to the Half-Life code. This will allow you to easily make Barney target the player.
