    Why are there hammer cocking sounds when people draw striker fired weapons in movies?

    Why do they put in spool up sound effects when helicopters take off? Their engines run at full RPM, the pilot increases rotor pitch, not RPM on takeoff.

    Why dont guys ragdoll when they take head shots?

    I love when you see semi autos lock the slide back when out of ammo, then they just start shooting again.
    Or somehow they just never run out of ammo

    Why do they show even experienced LEO's chambering a round as they enter a dangerous
    situation? I know, it looks cool,:rolleyes: but it's stupid.:confused: Have one chambered before you need it.
    That extra second might cost your life.:(

    Tires screeching on dirt/gravel roads.

    Cars making jumps, landing, then driving away without a SINGLE wrinkle.

    Booger hooks on bang switches...

    How many times can a single action gun go "click" when its empty?

    Why dont slides ever lock to the rear in crucial moments, resulting in a click?

    4-stroke motorcycles with 2-stroke sounds dubbed in

    Always a cocking sound when a gun is used to threaten someone even moments after the same cocking sound was dubbed in

    Shoes always clicking on the floor when trying to escape from a pursuer

    Woman hiding from a bad guy cannot control her emotions and always has to gasp, or make muffled squealing noises

    Getting shot never really hurts, only inconveniences and slightly disables the hero of the story

    And last but not least, always throw away the gun after the mag is empty, and never, ever, pick up the bad guy's superior weapon after knocking him out :rolleyes:

    When the hero and his team is SNEAKING up on the bad guys in a dark building/forest/cave and trying to be all quiet and shushing each other while they're all carrying huge ultra-bright flashlughts and turning night into day and also destroying their night vision.

    SWAT entry teams all armored up and stacked to go into a house... yet the stars of the show go in wearing only a light weight vest, clearing rooms with their side arm.... ahead of the SWAT team. o_O :rolleyes:

    Aside from incorrect period guns for the supposed year setting of the movie - incorrect military uniform accouterments are probably my biggest beetch.

    Actors making millions depicting crime fighting hero's who in the real world are anti-gun left wing nut jobs....

    Movies like taken where the hero kills like 80 people and always only gets the token shoulder or thigh flesh wound.

    Guns blazing, hero enters the room and blasts away with his hand cannon at a group of bad guys.
    Mows them down and then a rocket propelled grenade crashes through a window and detonates against a wall as the hero leaps through a doorway just in the nick of time.
    The very next scene has the hero creeping through an adjoining dark and empty room and listening for the tell tale squeak of a floor board.
    I guess heavy explosions and gunfire don't impair a hero's hearing.

    Hitting a guy over the back of the head with the butt of a pistol and he drops like a dirty diaper, apparently unconscious. Really???

    One flick I saw decades ago actually nailed it, and maybe else someone here will remember...

    Somebody sneaks up on a guard in a south of the border stronghold and clonks him on the noggin like that. The guard drops his rifle, doubles over, grabs his head and starts screaming stuff in Spanish. Of course this earns him 10-12 more whacks in 1.5 seconds and he gets "shushed" as he finally slips to the ground. I was laughing my buttocks off.

    Not so much nowadays but a lot of TV and Movies made in the 70s and 80s depicted American Military with non regulation haircuts. The actor might slick it down and tuck it behind his ears but it was always obvious that the hair was too long for a real soldier.

    When the detectives in a murder mystery talk about a suspect having a particular gun registered (or not registered) to them in a state where there is no gun registration - including Oregon and Wyoming (Backstrom and Longmire).

    Most states do not have gun registration (well, Oregon has it now, but not officially).

    Hollywood writers just assume every state has it - even California doesn't really have gun registration - not on every gun anyway.

    It is like they want to send a message that every state should have registration, or to condition people to think that we do and therefore be accepting of it.

    I don't think I've ever seen a horror/terror flick where a private citizen just happened to be carrying a defensive firearm. BOO! bang bye end

    That'd make the movie too short, and nobody would make dookie and warm lemonade in their shorts! :D
