In the movie Pearl Harbor when the cook (Carter) was shooting at the Zero the AA gun's ammo boxes were closed.
After the plane crashes they pan back at him with his fist in the air, and the AA gun's ammo boxes are open.

When I would watch a movie with my wife. (who was not a gun person) I would ask her what kind of gun that was, and if she did not know I would tell her. After a year or two she could name just about every gun.

How about bullets that cause sparks to fly off of any surface they hit -- including wood, fabric, glass, etc.

I've lost count of how many times a guy survives a hail of machine gun and rifle fire buy hiding behind the BG he manged to circle parry and put between him and the shooters....very clever.
Or the batting in couches and cushions, or a stack of pallets that my .22 could shoot through

Y'all must watch movies a lot closer than I do.

However I do remember one that always makes me smile. It's in the movie "Shenadoah" with Jimmy Stewart. In one scene "the boy" has gotten caught up with a Confederate Army unit. The Yankees are charging their position, the boy throws up his rifle, fires a shot, then flip open the trap and ejects a cartridge from his Trapdoor Springfield.

Oh well. Probably no one else noticed it, and those muzzle loaders are a lot of trouble on movie sets I'm sure. And the Trapdoor does LOOK a lot like a Springfield/Endfield Musket.

The Spaghetti westerns that over used the "bullet ricochet" sound effect. Was still fun to watch!

Good guy has a 2" snub nose revolver and shoots at the bad guy that is 100 yards away, positioned behind cover on the rooftop. Bad guy gets hit (really???) and then with the bullet's momentum he falls forward off the roof!!!

Physics don't work that way. 2" snubnose revolvers rarely (if ever) hit at 100 yards.

The only decent movie with realistic automatic weapons was Heat starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Val Kilmer.

Esp the hat shooting scene where Blondie is lighting up the townfolk at Tuco's hanging. Bullets must have been skipping off their scalps.

Speaking of The Walking Dead, did anyone notice the Maglite suppressor?

General Firearms Forum


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.

Lamp posts, telephone poles, car doors, all great cover & stop bullets.
Bullets that explode gas tanks, propane tanks, & light fires with spilled gas
Bullets that define physics, bend, shoot through the head of 8 people in a circle.

Not a mistake, but:

Check some old "John Wayne" movies......love the guy but when he shoots a pistol, his finger is all the way through the guard. The second joint of his finger pulls the trigger.

I guess I just pay a lot of attention to detail.

Just last night I was watching an episode of Lost, and a girls hair is in front of her left shoulder. It pans away, then back within a split second and now her hair is all behind her shoulder. Another pan, and it's back in front of her shoulder again, in the exact same way as the first time. She was seated inside so it's not like we have a lot of wind going on in this scene ...

Stuff like that bothers me

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.

This had me laughing so hard.

I know no one carrying without a chambered round, and no one throwing away and wasting rounds unnecessarily.

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.
It would be so easy to make the show seem legitimate too. It's sad because all these idiots have to do is hire someone like me or most members on GT and bam, they'd have a show that's completely accurate when it comes to the simple function of firearms. Unfortunately it seems like writers just use guns as accessories for their shows and don't have an ounce of respect for them.

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.

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.
