    GunnyBunny sez...

    14 shot .44 magnum revolvers. Continuity person not doing their job.

    Worst ever: Terminator 2... John Connor is running from the liquid metal terminator through the back corridors of the mall... the terminator is armed with a Beretta 92. He fires about 23 shots at Arnold before changing mags... I guess that is an example of 15 plus 8 in the pipe...

    Mustn’t forget, all BG’s carry .50 Desert Eagles and there is no recoil when they shoot.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Worse, still, is the sound of the slide being racked when the gun is drawn. A more "commanding" sound, I suppose, but equally impossibly associated with the mere sight of a gun appearing from behind clothing or being drawn from a holster.

    For example, in the Tom Hanks film Road To Perdition where Michael Sullivan is coming down the hallway to finish off Connor Rooney at the hotel. At the moment Sullivan pulls his 1911 from the SOB holster, the 1911 has a magic-slide-release sound play at the instant the gun appears in his hand. Gun in view = kaaa-chnk!! (Scene @ 02:30min in this trailer.)

    Using guns that have to be cocked every other minute, or 10-round mags that hold 54 rounds...

    Oh yeah one more...cops are at the murder scene and they find a revolver. They open the cyclinder, two casings are missing because the victim has been shot twice. Huh?????????

    Don't forget the scene where Tom Hanks is putting together his Tommy Gun. The fore grip slides on with a loud metallic snap. Actually the fore grip on a real Thompson is held on by a long screw.

    Yup.

    That "snap!" sound is so much more satisfying to the anti-gun crowd, to signify GUN=DANGER=RUN!, and anyone who has a gun is dangerous.

    Easier to do that than require people to think for themselves whether an action is dangerous or threatening. Can't be having them think for themselves, when there's one specific opinion the film makers want the people to have, regarding guns.

    When the BG with a gun is knocked out or stunned and the person being attacked just turns and runs without grabbing the gun...

    Not many people do it in real life, but almost everyone in the movies does it. And with big ole' revolvers no less.

    Another one that bugs me are the people in movies who are just regular, everyday people who look like they've never touched a gun in their life.

    Yet after they grab the gun left by the bad guy or the one given to them by another good guy, they suddenly become firearms experts, with perfect stance, grip, and sighting!

    How about when in a gunfight the the pistol is locked in the open position then in the next frame they are firing again without reloading.

    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
