My favorite firearm flubs of all time were in "The Taking of Pelham 123".

First, a police officer gives Denzel's character a Walther PPK. He shows him how to use the safety, "up for safe and down for fire" he demonstrates... obviously wrong and completely backwards.

Then, after Denzel later retrieves the Walther from the pocket of the duffel bag it was concealed in, the PPK has somehow magically become a Kahr.

Stuff like that bothers me

Now, that's some seriously funky continuity editing there...

My wife used to be a video producer, and she has a real eye for that stuff. She'll keep interrupting movies and T.V. shows to point out how blood splotches on actors' clothes keep jumping around on their bodies from scene to scene...

I like the old westerns where they hide behind a wagon wheel while being shot at. I told a guy at work I was going to get me a wagon wheel and put it in my bedroom just in case if someone breaks in I could hide behind it while shooting at the bad guy.

Old movies and cop shows of the 70s and 80s with screw in suppressors for revolvers. Ugh.

Just last night I was watching the latest episode of Dexter. There was a scene where he was taking a boat ride. He stops the boat in the middle of the ocean with nothing in any direction for a few miles. Camera comes in close and now I can see a rock Jetty come into view, and as the camera pans, the boat looks to be only 50ish yards from the Jetty. Now the camera cuts back to the zoomed out view and we are back out in the open ocean, and he gasses it heading directly where the Jetty was a few seconds ago.

I just can't catch a break

You DO have a good eye -- my wife and I both watch that show, and neither of us caught that...

You've turned me on to Koontz. Picked up Kindle versions and started into Odd Interlude 1 and Watchers. Looking forward to a good, accurate read.

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?
At least one movie admits to this.

We could probably spend a hundred pages bringing up gun errors in movies.

A few that come to mind.

First Indiana Jones movie where he is in the tavern in Tibet and gets into a firefight with the Nazis. One scene he is shooting his revolver, cut away and back and he has an automatic. Cut away and back and he has a revolver again.

Recently watched 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance' with John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Lee Marvin. In the gun fight scene between Jimmy Stewart and Lee Marvin, Stewart is seen loading a double action revolver made up to look like a single action.

People getting blown off their feet, or through a wall, by a pistol.

Two of my favorite non firearms related: Goodfellas, when Jimmy is trying to get Morrie to pay up, the phone rings while Jimmy is beating Morrie with the receiver.

In Terminator 2, in the scene where the kid is being chased through the L.A. viaducts. I didn't know Peterbilt made dirt bikes, that thing had at least 16 gears.

Recent episode of Hunted, had the lead character thumb cocking a GLOCK. It's bad enough when the sound effects guys get it wrong post editing, but to have an actress thumbing an imaginary hammer....

Last weekend I watching an old 1950's western show call the "Rebel". They said several times in the show the Civil War ended 3 years earlier. 1865+3=1868 they showed a close up of someone holding a Peacemaker (Peacemaker came out in 1873) Most people would not notice, but I did.

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.

General Firearms Forum
I noticed that, but I thought it was supposed to be a weird crossbow, since I didn't get a good look at it and most of them use bows.


Mine would have to be the threatening to shoot someone/holding them at gunpoint with the hammer down 1911 or the revolver making sounds like the cases are hitting the ground.

Not really weapon-related but I once saw an old (early 1970's) color movie about Roman Legions and during a major battle you could clearly make out a white aircraft trail in the blue sky!

I also like Fear Nothing and Seize the Night. Read those in order after Watchers. They are a loose continuation of the smart dogs, with some relation back ot Watchers.

Just like I was taught to shoot a revolver in the police academy? I'm pretty good at it too. Maybe John Wayne was onto something.

Also pretty much exactly how I was told to pull a rifle trigger by a national champion service rifle shooter from the Army Marksmanship Unit. I still don't do it that way, but I have heard at least 2 USAMU NTI national champion service rifle shooters, SFC Kyle Ward and SSG Brandon Green, give the same advice - as much finger through the guard as you can get.

Then again, back in the wild west days, it would be period correct to show a guy pulling the trigger with his middle finger, as at least one handgun shooting book of the time said was the "only" way to do it.

I'll hold off calling that one a mistake.

I was watching the last season of Alias, and in multiple episodes, they had standard Beretta M92 with clearly NO CAN on it but they used the "silencer" sound in post production.

In the TV show Miami Vice, whenever Crockett fired his Bren 10 it sounded like a cannon.

That wasn't sound effects added. That **** was real!!!

She was also gripping it about 2 inches low on the backstrap.

That I have no problem believing. Everybody firing from the hip. Nobody aiming. No surprise nobody ever got hit. Considering how many of them were shooting Mini-14s the part I can't believe is no jams.

General Firearms Forum

Now Denny Crane at least knows how to handle a gun.

General Firearms Forum

And no silly cocking or clicking sounds before he shot that mugger in the knee and feet.
