Or how many times a semiauto pistol slide locks open on the first shot but miraculously keeps on firing.
To much time on a person's hands if they care about the mistakes seen in movies/TV shows....
Pssssstttttt, movies and TV shows are not real life......... Just saying..........
 never mind.
IMO, if you're paying attention strongly enough to notice something like that, you're not multitasking (TV plus something useful!) enough! :wink:
I understand movies like Pulp Fiction. They are typically uneducated bangers, so you expect them not to kn*BANG* why'd you shoot him in the face!!??
Anyway, you have to take the character into account, too. What gets me is watching a show like Strike Back, and seeing poor weapons discipline, although the guys on that show are pretty spot on, thankfully. Seeing someone who's meant to be a highly skilled, trained operator, doing stupid mistakes like poor trigger discipline is what gets my goat.
'Sactly -- I don't pay much attention to presentations that aren't really "based in reality" (Pulp Fiction is a good example of just plain over-the-top 'gangsta action' - as much as I personally loved the film). But in others where they're at least trying to present something more "realistic" things like that are now distractions.
I'm not paying attention and watching for them - They find me.
If ya wanna see a great way NOTto handle a revolver watch the cop in Ed Woods "Plan nine from outer space".:blink:
