Bad movie tropes and your favorite dumb firearms stuff

Apparently I’m in a silly mood because this is entertaining me tonight:
From “Wanted” … bullets that shoot around curves:

I love the comments on this clip, some of them are quite entertaining
so she blinks faster than bullet speed?

What are your favorite bad-firearms movie moments?

Not a huge fan of the new MacGyver, figured I’d watch a random episode. Prison break: one of the agents gets shot in the shoulder with a shotgun (everyone else who got shot with a shotgun fell dead). After a minute, the agent jumps up, grabs the same shotgun, shotgun whips the bad guy across the back of the head, then aims it at him, and helps the other guy bind his hands behind his back with a belt. After all that, casually looks at his bloody shoulder and mentions he needs to get that looked at.

Won’t be watching that one again.

This was done by a professional. Do not try at home. Lol!

Ah yes, the near-bulletproof hero. :face_with_monocle: A tried and true staple of movies.

I can do that with a pool cue and a billiard table! LOL. (I used to be able to do that with a baseball but that was many years ago!) LOL

Yeah, frankly with a cue ball I probably would have blasted Angelina right between the eyes (for the fun of it)! LOL

Open Range. Although I love the movie there is one point during the main gunfight that Kevin Costner manages 13 rounds from a six shooter. It has always bothered me. Maybe it’s my OCD!

I haven’t run down the film clips for these, but we’ve all seen them:
-the character has a pump action shotgun. They rack the pump to show they’re serious. Then they rack again. Ann’s again. Never firing, just racking.
-In a similar vein, they have a semi-auto pistol. To show they’re serious, they cock it and you get the hammer-and -cylinder clicks of a revolver. Never mind that it’s also a glock, or any of the other pistols without an exposed hammer.
-all the crack shot cowboys who make precise quick draw shots at ranges up to 50 yrs or more without ever even glancing at the sights.

The most recent “gun dummy” incident was in a book instead of a movie. A veteran LEO,you after taking another officers glock sidearm, carefully sets the safety before dropping it into his pocket. This author has writes at least three different series of novels, all involving some level of LE, with dozens of books published. I expect better from supposed professional writers.

I caught the blinking too. The holes were correct though. Murtaug made the center shot. Then Riggs sent it back down range and added 2 eyes and a five hole mouth for 8 total.

Pretty good shooting for having your eyes closed, huh?

Actually this is a great drill I’ve been using:

  1. from “compressed ready” you aim the target. After good sight alignment you close your eyes and take a shot.
  2. from “compressed ready” you aim the target. Go back to “compressed ready”. Close your eyes, aim the target, take a shot.

Try it - it’s a fun !!!

That is how I was taught to decide if a firearm points naturally for you.
