It was a long day and I was looking for something to make me laugh, so I headed over to tvtropes for a little firearms entertainment.
TVtropes takes on all the goofy or exaggerated or cliche things that happen in movies because the directors think we’re kinda dumb or, well, because MOVIES.
Here are some of what I’m finding funny tonight:
More Dakka - the art of solving problems by unloading as many rounds of ammunition at them as possible. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MoreDakka
Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy - Why the good guys can stand in the middle of More Dakka and never get hit. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy
as illustrated by:
A-Team Firing - another case of the failure of More Dakka, in which Heroes and villains can expend enormous amounts of ammo shooting at each other, often with automatic weapons and/or at very close range, yet everybody important is protected by Plot Armor https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ATeamFiring
BFG - A BFG is a piece of personal artillery used by an individual and chiefly defined by, well, its incredible bigness. A BFG chiefly differs from a Hand Cannon in that the Hand Cannon is large for a pistol , while the BFG is large for … well, it’s just plain large. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BFG
And of course - Guns Do Not Work That Way https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GunsDoNotWorkThatWay
