    Hilarious! You know those FBI guys are always trying to show off their mag holders

    And take a look at "boy agent" on the right. Hmmm, unless he is CPA or a masters in computer engineering, it's hard to see how he made agent at 19 - especially as they like to see three to five years in local law enforcement.

    If you watch the show, he looks more like 26-30 than 19. It's Harold from Harold and Kumar.

    Besides the bad holster positioning, I think the show is pretty cool. It's a new idea.

    Movies do it, the media does it, and many shooters do it.

Never mind that he clearly bought a Franchi that can be loaded by pump action or semi-automatic.

    Silencers. For those who don't know, silencers don't actually make a gun any less loud; they only disguise the sound. Real silencers make a very metallic-sounding "BBBRRRIIINNNNGGGG!!!" sound, not the "Psew!" Star Wars type of sound like in the media.
    Really? Do you actually own and use one regularly? Mine makes no such metalling "BBBRRRIIINNNNGGGG!!!" sound. It's quite the "Psew!" sound. In fact...I'd venture to say that with subsonic rounds it's quieter than a bb gun. I have fired from my grandparents back porch less then 10 feet from an open window and NO ONE sitting inside in recliners right next to the window heard it.
    Even with regular supersonic rounds it's quite muffled as well and about the only sound you hear is the supersonic crack of the round breaking the sound barrier.

    I always like good looking babes carrying some big gun on their hip. It looks so out of place. Angelina Jolie as Laura Croft with those big guns strapped to her legs. They look so heavy that they wobble back and forth while she walks/runs.

    I've never heard of a double action automatic de-cocking 1911, have you?
    Sure I have! I saw it on The Sopranos!!

    Ahhh, the always accurate snubbie. Ever watch the old movies/tv where they take down a nest of BG's with a snubbie and no reloads. Wow!

    Stupid!
    Oh, you are so on the money, John. I'm yelling at my wife, "What's that crazy so and so thinking!!?" Along with that is that the BG just murdered a half dozen friends and family (they were on the Altell plan) and the hero/heroine does grab the gun but runs. Far be it from them to put two rounds in the heart and one in the head!

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

    Actually, I prefer crossdraw but finally gave it up when 1. barrel stuck in my groin when sitting and 2. No range (rightfully so) allows crossdraw training that I have been involved with.

    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!
    And along with that: "Independence Day". After working six years with Navy student pilots and seeing what they went through for TWO YEARS to get qualified in a jet or helicopter, we have crop dusters or Cessna pilots who jump in F15's and blow Martians out of the sky. Yeah, that's gonna happen.

    Well, as long as I'm stealing this thread (did anyone notice I'm on break) another favorite along this line: In the old movie "The Final Countdown", I had some Navy jocks burst out laughing (They affectionately called it, "The Final Letdown") when a bunch of F14's took off from the carrier "sans ordinance" but, moments later, fighting the Zero's, they mysteriously have bombs under their wings.
