Most Realistic Gun Scenes in Movies (And Some Ridiculous Ones)
Hall of Shame
I could easily write an entire article on how and where Hollywood got it wrong.
Instead I want to point to just a few mess ups and mistakes that I find kinda funny.
If you’re new to guns these can be fun to look for. If you are an Old hand with a firearm they can actually start to really grind your gears.
Unlimited Ammo: American History X
A tragic and great film has a few very brutal scenes.
One involves the main character wielding a Ruger P94. This gun holds 10 rounds but the main character discharges it 24 times without reloading.
Honorable Mention: Bruce Willis in Last Man Standing
Yea…Cock that Hammer:
The sound of a hammer being cocked on a Glock or other striker fired pistol is an old school Hollywood goof.
Sons of Anarchy seems to do this every time a Glock is in a scene so the award goes to them.
Honorable Mention: In Ant Man a stream of Ants clog the magically appearing hammer on a Glock.
Shotgun Pumping Sounds Are Cool: The Terminator
Kyle Reese pumps his shotgun three different times without ever firing a shot.
Once when he cuts the barrel off (which makes sense) once when he wakes up, and once when he starts shooting in the club.
Honorable Mention: Natural Born killers has shotguns being pumped numerous times without a shot fired.
