    I watched an episode of Hawaii 5-0 and saw something cool. Tom Sizemore was playing a cop who had to shot his ex-partner. He fired two into the guy with a Glock and then advanced on him as he laid on the ground.
    Once he realized the guy was out of the fight, you see him take his finger from the trigger AND when he does, you hear the trigger reset. Cool. Wish I can get my guys to do that each time.

    surely, with his expertise, he had the trigger half pressed to save time for the next shot :whistling:

    Yeah, he wanted to, but didn't. I just thought it cool that someone knew enough to include the sound of the reset. Sizemore has been in some good gun movies (Saving Private Ryan, HEAT) so maybe besides being a rehad regular, he also knows a thing or two about guns.

    I saw that episode also, Sizemore plays an a hole, but in honesty I think that would be something a director or producer would put in , not the actor.

    Hawaii 5-0, good show, my wife loves it. They NEED to kill off Wo Fat. He was a villain in the original 5-0.

    I don't know why they can't find him, he's right there on Food Network. They could take him while he's revealing the secret ingredient....

    I'm just surprised he landed a T.V gig that wasn't "Celebrity Rehab".

    A lot of post sound effects are added post processing by a foley artist. Believe it or not, most sounds in shows and movies are greatly exaggerated. Real life slide racking, trigger resets and such are not nearly as loud as heard in a movie. That's because they are dubbed in afterwards.

    No kidding. The guy is a train wreck, even if a decent actor.

    Agreed. Is the stress from acting any worse than the stress some of us have to deal with?

    Anyway, I've been recording that show to mark time until "Justified" comes back around. The producers apparently have some decent technical advisers as the gun handling skills are more credible than Hollywood has given us in the past. The tactics, on the other hand, are tailored for camera shots. SIG and Blackhawk and all the gear manufactures need to come on out and advertise their wares as the official firearms, apparel, tactical gear of 5-0 - right along side Chevrolet during prime time.
