    Movie Weapon Pet Peeves

    Here's a thread to talk about all the Pet Peeves concerning firearms in movies. For example, the 15 or so rounds fired by the Kevin Costner's colt in "Open Range" while he was fanning the hammer. Or maybe this one:

    Was watching "Red" just now and this scene only flashes on the screen for a second but instantly something seemed wrong about it. So I went back to take another look. The scene was so fast it took me a couple tries to pause it right at the spot but let see if you all can notice what the problem is:

    It doesn't look like there is a magazine attached to the AR. You can see the sling under the mag well, with a gap...

    My common gripe is watching bullets leave a trail of sparks/flashes/flame when they hit anything in the area. I have shot up my fair share of cars and concrete and have yet to see anything other than dust and holes.

    Maybe it is one of those flush-fit 5 rounders. The movie could have been shot in Canada and they wanted to comply with our gun laws. The MP5 in the background could be an airsoft for the same reasons.

    My personal favorite. Watching a belt fed browning shooting at normal cars and watch sparks fly as the rounds bounce off the sheet metal bodies without any damage (unless it hits a window in which case it breaks a single pane and not the one on the opposite side).

    This is just the next evolution in Hollywood guns. First mags (or cylinders for that matter) that never run out except for when a dramatic pause is required. Now mags are completely done away with, it's technology.

    Actually, if you watch the directors cut of Open Range they did that on purpose to pay tribute to the old western where it was common. It bugged me too until I found out they did it on purpose.

    The one that always bugs me is the cocked revolver with no firing pin on the hammer...

    are you referring to that fellas optic being backwards?

    couches are bullet proof. As is drywall.

    Movies hire companies that have access to prohibs and what not for filming. Well budgeted ones anyways.
