The Bad
- Firing a full-length shotgun one-handed. I've seen this a lot, and the most notable example I can name is Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Unless you're a robotic assassin sent back from the future, this is a really good way to dislocate your shoulder.

I've shot buckshot out my 870 one handed and my shoulder was fine.

The Bad - Just about every movie/TV show where all guns work super good all the time.

The Good - The Way of the Gun (Of course) wherein Benicio Del Toro's shotgun jams and he clears the jam before going back to firing.

A decent, well maintained gun doesn't really jam very often.

All things being equal, it looks like the bald guy could easily have drawn and fired, but because Cruise is taking so long he has to half rear end fumble for 3 seconds until he gets shot.

Drawing down on two dudes ready to fight is usually going to be a losing proposition. It would have been a lame movie, though, if Vincent got his dome popped in an alleyway by a couple pieces of poo poo. More realistic, but lame.

The gun would almost definitely shoot once. The gun wouldn't cycle, though. Fully automatic fire would be impossible.

Well, yeah, I agree that the entire point of the movie was a look into the mind of a manchild's fantasy about banging out a girl hotter than his girlfriend and that's why I'm saying it's bad... so, we agree?

Wanting to bang a woman hotter than your girlfriend doesn't make you a manchild. Doing so in the angstiest, whiniest, most passive-aggressive turned actively aggressive way possible makes you a manchild.

Hope you're not still a manchild.

Passive-aggressive sex would be hilarious.

I don't think I qualify anymore.

FYI I constantly want to gently caress on women hotter than my girlfriend

Here's another news flash: sex in real life isn't usually like what you see in the movies. That said, I don't want to pay $15 to go see a 30 something hairy, slightly chubby white guy awkwardly humping away in the same position for all of 5-10 minutes, I want to see lithe supermodels performing acts that rival most Olympic gymnastics routines.

One of the best MAX Punisher moments is in the Kingpin returns arc, which was overall dumb and I don't like them bringing in "supes" even if it is just Bullseye.

Anyway, he's fighting the Amish dude and is getting his rear end handed to him, just getting obliterated and as he's dying he's saying "I can't die, I have to live to punish again, have to live to kill" and stuff like that and it really shows just how loving gone Frank is at this point. There's also a subplot about how he can't remember his wife's face and it's just all very brutal in terms of character even if the story is lacking.

EDIT: Here's the page: (for spoilers) http://www.outerhaven.net/upload/imgs/da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709.1.jpg

Was that in MAX? I don't remember that storyline and the art doesn't really fit with the rest of the series.

I was wondering where the hell Terry Crews was during that scene, then started cracking the gently caress up when he showed up to wreck shop. What an entertaining movie, i hope to GOD they make a sequel.

The scene down the tunnel, where you just see dudes getting shot up and then here he comes stomping by is loving great.

His life story is really something, and everything I've heard has said that he's a really nice guy these days and gives talks to kids telling them to stay clean, off drugs, etc.

He came to my high school and gave a talk in the gym about drugs and gang life.

Honestly, what I learned was how to survive in a gang and how to score and sell drugs more efficiently. He didn't do a very good job talking us out of the thug life.

No brass came out when he cycled the action, but when Ben Affleck's character reloads his SA58 he ejects a round out of the action for no reason after changing mags.

Many people train to always rack the slide/action after a reload for muscle memory and just in case reasons.

I don't subscribe to the theory, but lots do and maybe the consultant told them to do it that way?

I was watching some military stuff on the History Channel earlier, and I saw them air a commercial for a new show. Hosted by Larry The Cable Guy. I know at this point that they're about as much about history as TLC is about learning, but goddamn. God. drat.

History is loaded with all kinds of awesome stuff, but these jerks would rather air stuff like that and Ice Road Truckers instead of... Anything else. Whatever happened to the shows about Rome, and Egypt, and WW-2? Or that one show about engineering disasters? That was kinda interesting. A whole world and hundreds of years to draw material from, and this is what we get.

V I wanted to record that on the DVR and watch it later, but I can't record the season premier of Top Gear, Adventure Time/Regular Show, and that. Sorry cop show, I hope you're good and move to a different time slot.

What was it? I saw it at a drive-in (was going for that whole '1950s alien movies in a drive-in feel') and probably missed it.

Also, I don't think this is a spoiler, but why were their rifles all like 20" long? I thought the military used 14.5" rifles.

Oh, one other neat thing. Lots of the hovering/craft technology seemed to be based off of this, which I thought was cool.

USMC issues M16A4s.

I think the M9 error was in the shot that was further away, it looked like the slide was locked back. When it closed in again, dude was still shooting.

I loved the movie. I was very entertained throughout, despite the corny dialog and stupid civilians.

I'll give props to the owner of the Mexican baseball team in Eastbound & Down, though. Hip firing the M16 at the alien was pretty dope.

This one brought to you from the land of video games! In new Mortal Kombat, Striker must have some god drat bionic thumbs or something. In one of his cut scenes he has his left thumb wrapped around the back of the slide while aiming at some demon or something.

I've held my Glock 19 slide closed by pressing my thumb against the back. Didn't hurt even a little.

In fact, it's recommended in certain situations. If you press the muzzle of many pistols hard against something, you'll push the slide out of battery enough that the trigger won't do poo poo. Solution? Hold your thumb against the back to hold it in battery. You get one shot, but it's better than nothing.

Guys, guys. Can't we all play nice?

Pre-derail content: I finally watched the new Sherlock Holmes (which totally pales in comparison to the 1984 British television series, but I digress) and was pleased when the first gunshot in the movie deafened the characters. Then I was saddened a bit when every subsequent gunshot was quieter than a Black Cat firecracker.

I don't know why people think its realistic to not be able to hear poo poo after a gun shot. I've heard plenty without ear pro and I don't remember going deaf a single time.

Assuming you're talking about outside. Inside a building, it's a different story - I've been around a handful of rounds discharged inside a house, and each time resulted in temporary deafness for up to several days.

Been there with a .45 that had no effect. In fact, I didn't really hear the shot that was 2 feet away. Just felt the splash of broken glass and saw a hole.
