This guy was talking about building a .22 LR suppressor using a maglight for the tube. Never posted any pics so I doubt if he ever did it.

I remember one that really got me. It was a Glock. The bad guy wanted to make the threat of the gun more apparent. Since there was no hammer to cock back, the actor did the next best thing......pulled the slide back and locked it in place. Then held the newly cocked glock up to the guys face. I gotta say, the barrel sticking up at a weird angle gave it a scary look.

Let's see,
1. Never running out of bullets without a reload.
2. Hollywoods obsession with the "click, click" of a guns hammer. Rather cocking it, or just making the hammers sound even if the gun doesn't have a hammer.
3. Pump shotgun being pumped over and over again without a shell being expelled. Pumpong the gun every chance they get for no reason.
4. In the same scene the type of gun being handled by an actor changing in mid-scene. And the beat goes on!

From what I think people missed so far:

1)Hero "fanning" a 1911.

2)Hero keep changing pistol through out the movie

3)Average uniform cops using Colt Python as duty weapon

4)This one is edititor's fault, but I hate that they flip the image so the chamber/safety options show up on the wrong side of gun

5)Hero is soloing again entire gang of bad guys. Yet never stop and pick up the bad guy's gun once he karate them down

I don’t think anyone mentioned this one yet. Why is it that the good guys always wait until the absolute last minute to camber their weapons after the bad guys are charging them? Shouldn’t this have been done before they were under attack?

In Lethal Weapon Mel Gibson's character talks about the hollow point he's gonna use for his suicide. Problem is it's a FMJ round.

Not a mistake, but:

rank right up there with the revolver that holds 816 rounds, and the ricochet that seems to always happen.

worst i saw was a t.v. show in the 70's guy pulls a snubnose, and from the hip, knocks a girl off a surfboard a good, what....75 yards away? at about age 7, i called bravo sierra on that one.

Along with the constant cocking clicks in moves, anytime a group of guys are running with guns you hear all sorts of rattles and clanks. Almost sounds like the guns are full of loose parts.

Which Lethal Weapon was it that the "cop killer" bullets went straight through the scoop on the bulldozer and killed the bad guy?

Not just westerns, a lot of gangsters, cops, and military shot that way too.

It seemed to be a fairly common shooting technique in older (1950s and earlier) movies and TV shows.

Not a movie, but in Catch 22, Joseph Heller has Yossarian racking the bolt on a 1911.

Bad guy holding the victim(s) at gunpoint and they are having a verbal exchange. As things heat up, the bad guy racks the slide to emphasize how serious the situation is getting.

Wasn't there one in the pipe to begin with?

Drives me nuts.

How about Mel's flinch every time he pulls a trigger in any of his movies. Isn't he supposed to play a bad-a** in lethal weapon? Yet, the range scene with the smiley face on the target has him flinching every time a blank goes off.

I have seen newbies at the range pull that along with the sideways Glock shot.

In the movie The Next Three Days, Russell Crowe goes into a gun shop, buys a Glock, and says - "show me where the bullets go"

Immediately he's handling and shooting the gun like a pro!

Sideway shooting is so 20th century. It's upsidedown shooting these days.

If you sideways shoot next to me you will be asked to leave, unless you're a big rough looking guy, then I would compliment you on your shooting style
