I agree, but these things aren't even noticed by the novice gun people. Just by us gun junkies. I see this stuff in movies/tv and point it out to my girlfriend and she just shakes her head and says, " only you would notice something like that". Yep.

That was to help launch the bullet as they had really slow burning powder back then.

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.

The constant racking of a pump shotgun. You never see the live round fly out from the last time the shotgun was racked......

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

Not movies but in novels where the writer should know better, I've frequently read their lead character "takes the safety off" of a revolver. Really?? Same thing with Glocks. Come on now, revolvers with safeties. Don

In the movie Blitz starring Jason Statham, he play a cop chasing down a cop killer. Towards the end of the movie around 1:30min mark his partner hands him what looks like a Sig 226, Jason then point the Sig at the killer and pulls the trigger (front view, Sig is pointed at the camera). The camera then transitions to a side, Jason is now holding a smoking revolver?!?!?!?!?! The camera pans back to the front view and it's a Sig again.

You can always watch A-Team and see hundreds of thousands of rounds shot and never hitting anyone.

The hero who's standing in the middle of the street, fully exposed, is able to shoot and kill multiple bad guys who are under cover.

Right up there with decocking a DA/SA semi auto without using the decocking lever... guess it just looks tougher on screen.

Lots of extra clicks all the way around in that scene

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

I love guys and this forum, but you're all a little geeked out about this.

Bad writing and acting get me long before this stuff.


Side note: I can't stand when I see Germans driving a battalion of German marked Patton tanks in WWII movies.

I know no one carrying without a chambered round, and no one throwing away and wasting rounds unnecessarily.
There was the one episode of Justified where Raylan jacks a live cartridge out of his Glock and drops it on a guy's chest and says... "Next one's coming a lot faster".

As others have mentioned, my two biggest pet peeves are definitely:

1) racking the slide on a shotgun for effect, even though it has already been shown being chambered (usually more than once)

2) the manual thumb-cocking of the Glock hammer
