Drives me nuts ; seeing a hammer down on a 1911, or they are in the gun fight of their life & just dumped 1200 rounds outta their 1911 & they are gonna open the last door ..... he’s gotta be in there ........ & ...... they ain’t even got their finger on the damn trigger !! They pull a pistol out & rack it .... every fricken time!!! They NEVER have a malfunction, Or get slide bite, no matter what gangsterass grip they use. They can dump 5000 rounds in a living room shootout & talk in a normal voice afterwards. A 8 round mag last for 53 shots. Oh where is the A TEAM when I need some realistic tv?!!!!

Brian, the book is “warrior soul“ the memoir of a Navy seal by Chuck Pfarrer.

“This gear was considered our safety equipment. It included a .40 caliber Glock model 17 pistol, four magazines, a K bar knife, a mark 13 flare and an infrared strobe light”

Later he says “even on this practice mission, each man carried 480 rounds of .40 caliber Teflon coated hollow point ammunition. These rounds were specifically designed to pass through all known types of body armor, including our own”
Wow. Hard to explain how that could be so mangled. Drugs? Deliberate obfuscation? Crazy.

I have no explanation. You would think they would proofread something like that.

I guess I’ve tried too many cases but I used to tell the jury that when you catch a witness lying about one thing you have a right to not believe anything else they say. It’s funny but the guys credibility just went to zero after I read that part.

And in every police raid in the movies nobody has a round in the chamber in their shotgun. They always have to rack it at the door. Then you see them doing room checks with a 1911 with the hammer forward.

It’s like my wife and I watching lawyer movies. My specialty was trial work and the things you see in the movies are just absurd.

Then in police movies you see the officer knocking on the door and standing directly in the center of the door, that drives me crazy too.
Actually, They rack the gun again a few more times without a thing coming out of it.
When they shoot a fully automatic anything, They don't seem to hit their targets

What gets me is when the police or even bad guys pull their semi auto handguns and rack it, to chamber a round. None of them seem to carry with a round in the chamber.

I remember watching “The Punisher“, he seemed like a real he-man.

You would think that a guy playing a former Marine and super stealthy CIA killer called The Punisher would be cool about weapons. I remember him saying “hey, I only got one more full clip” I lost confidence in him but continued to watch.

I have the same problem with aviation scenes in movies...
Yep. Never realized this when I was flying gliders, but now that I've seen it on TV and in the movies so many times, I know that if an airplane's engine stops it immediately goes into a tail-spin!

This is why I enjoy the John Wick movies.

Evidently everyone in the movies carries their shotguns unloaded.

Drives me nuts.

You mean you lost confidence in the script writers knowledge of terminology? Jane just read from a script 😎

Maybe, my friend. I was just watching along, had sort of bought in to the character, rooting for him, etc. That’s why they hire consultants like us old guys to prevent these oversights. It would be kind of like me finding out that you were never a Marine but you used to be an electronics repairman in the Coast Guard. Not crushing but would make you pause and re-think.

Bet those super duper Teflon coated hollow points couldn’t penetrate wonder woman’s bullet deflecting bracelets! :ROFLMAO:

When in doubt, blame it on the Editor.

I get a real kick out of watching submarine movies. Honestly, the most realistic one for me is Down Periscope--more for the wisecracks and such.

If you want a good “Seal read”, try “No Ordinary Dog” by Will Chesney. Hits the mark with both reality and the love of dogs. He was the dog guy with Seal Team Six on lots of big ops, including THE big one. (y)
