This I despise. One damn ounce of research could fix this.

To go along with this is when you see in movies or on TV where the character(s) is one goddamn second from doing something that will guarantee a gunfight and they "make ready" at that moment.

The worst example I've seen of this was in some military themed movie where the guys/convoy were already outside the damn wire and they didn't have their weapons loaded until they got to their supposed objective.

If they had presented a Nagant, I would have given full credit for the attempt.

I doubt they had even an inkling of a Nagant.

Speaking of hearing things....another faux, as an also ran....you will see them swing the cylinder out of the frame of the 20th century wheelgun as if to inspect the chambers. Then hear a ratchet whiz as they spin the cylinder vigorously, before closing up the gun again.

Makes me cringe when I see the shooter whip his handgun every time he shoots. Looks like the whipping action flings the bullet out of the barrel. Same technique used for flinging boogers across the room. Made popular way back in the old westerns and still in use today by the entertainment industry. Get a clue!

Actually, I don't shoot it out of my M14 because when I checked the headspace, it would swallow a .308 field gauge but not the 7.62x51 field gauge. Slightly different specs between the two. I understand that 7.62x51 brass is slightly thicker? Someone somewhere will correct this for sure.

Now back to the topic at hand.

This whipping action actually has a legitimate historical ancestry. In the good ol days of black powder revolvers, whipping the pistol would shed the remains of the popped cap thus keeping the action from getting jammed with copper shrapnel.

Repeatedly pulling the trigger on an empty Glock results in:


"Click, click, click."

Recent one on msnbc "...a high powered glock pistol..."

Does that mean there is a crafty and skilled pastor that married a begian and an austrian?
Is there a 5.56 or 7.62 glock we dont know about? Maybe one in .221 Bee? Oh well pandering never needs a fact. Could have said "...high cap mag... " and used facts?

"High powered" Glocks have much more emotional power than the standard/low powered Glock like the cops have. Unless the cops shoot the wrong guy, then they too have "high powered" Glocks. The greater the number of victims, the more "high powered" any particular gun becomes. Odd how the shooter in those types of events never become more "raving lunatic" the more victims they have. They all seem to remain "troubled" or some such.

TV Shows/Movies where people shoot throughout a several minutes long firefight and never run out of bullets until after all the bad guys are dead. This happens with everything from revolvers to bolt action rifles to semi auto pistols to SMGs to Automatic Rifles.
TV Shows/Movies where fragmentation grenades blow up in a giant fireball and propel people 20' through the air.
People who blame their lack of shooting skills on the firearm.
