How come so many TV shows stick the gun in the SOB and then run with it? Especially NCIS L.A. Now I have said before I am not going to scold the TV shows for gun mistakes. It's a TV show. I will applaud the accurate ones. But I know no one who can without a holster, stick a gun in the SOB and then run. It just annoys me. Kenzi's may work but no one else's.

If Magnum P.I. could do it with a full size 1911 - then it must real!

Well Magnum usually Mexican carried
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
I carry there but with a left hand inside the waisteband holster. Now running at my age is another thing but it doesn't have to do with the gun falling out.
They must have learned how to clinch while running.

The first time I saw this was back in the fifties. A detective show called tightrope staring Mike Conners. ( he also started in a show called Mannix). The guy in the tightrope show carried a snub nose sob. They made a big deal out of it saying the bad guys would search him but not find his gun because they never looked at his back.
The whole gun thing on TV ticks me off. They don't recoil, the slides seldom move, if they do reload the mag or speed loader just magically appears. Loaded mags are heavy. How dose a guy in suit pants and light shirt all of a sudden come up with a bunch of mags? The gun is never loud enough to bother anyone. Brass rarely flies around and never hits people. Now not all movies and TV shows are like this but, I think most are. I would be happy to hear suggestions on movies that are realistic. I don't get to see a lot of movies.
I am constantly pointing this stuff out to my GF (and luckily she puts up with it and doesn't get annoyed).
Especially the firing of multiple rounds in small rooms followed by polite conversation. She finally understood how 'magical' that was after forgetting to put her hearing protection on at the range when someone fired a round off and I pointed out 'imagine what 6 or 8 rounds in a small room would be like'.

Just saw the classic ol' Tuck The Gun In The Bum Crack move last night on REVOLUTION.

My wife hates watching movies or television shows with me that include guns and shooting.
