MOST annoying common gun in movies inaccuracy?

For me, it has to be people who go around with a 1911 with the hammer uncocked. Are you kidding me?!
Doesn't a weapons tech guy say anything?
You?

The best is when they have a Glock and they make the clicking sound as if they cocked a hammer

Holding someone at gun point, a 1911, with finger on the trigger and hammer down.

I was going to say this, but I found it amusing in The Walking Dead in the first episode where Rick tells the deputies to make sure his safety is off and there's a round in the chamber on his Glock. The guy then looks down, turns the Glock to the side, pulls back the slide to reveal an empty chamber and mag, closes the slide still empty then flicks up on the slide stop like he's hitting a safety and then you hear the click.

Watching the trailer (in which they showed that scene) almost kept me from tuning into the series. Almost...

Since then, TWD seems intent on including at least one WTF? firearm moment in every episode - the most recent being a clearly bent rifle barrel. I swear they're doing it on purpose.

I particularly dislike the jumping horizontally wiping twin pistols routine.
Check the expended shell casings defying gravity.

Aside from the fact that I have no idea how the slide would reciprocate with the Maglite attached.

I mean come on. This is America, In a zombie apocalypse you should be able to scavenge at least one quality suppressor from somewhere.

never noticed it was a maglite bahaha

You beat me to it. And it makes that sound over and over every time they point it too. Must be that new Glock decocker I've been hearing about.

That is the most annoying thing ever in shows and movies. I never watched the show lost and my g/f and I started watching it over the holidays on net flix. In one episode they found a g-19, they "cocked" it two different times then the third the actor actually used his thumb like cocking a hammer back and it made the click... She was not happy with my yelling at the TV. Couldn't take it any longer

Every time gun of any kind raised to firing position it has to make the “click” sound.

Bunch of guys with guns doing whatever they do with guns... then someone suddenly moves out of the shadow - they all then rack the slide / pump the shotgun...

Why the hell wasn't your gun chambered before you went in to rob the bank / save the girl / catch the bad guys?



That, and when a Glock / 1911 / non-da gun goes dry, the slide is not locked back, and it "clicks" three times with three pulls of the trigger.

I want that flush fitting 1,000 round mag for a Beretta 92.

I think they have them for just about all other movie guns too. Wouldn't it be nice to have a endless supply of ammo in your gun when you go to the range?

Writers must be ignorant about everything they write. Very few shows seem to use experts for accuracy. I know about literary license but this is literary ignorance.

, all of the above irritate me, mostly because it gives novice gun people or people who dont have much experience with guns a wrong impression
