saw a movie with James Caan getting ready to "whack" some guy outside a bathroom. he racks the slide on his 1911, then puts it away when some people walk by, he then takes it out & racks the slide again. moments later, he walks into the bathroom up to the stall where the bad guy is, & racks the slide again. so by my count there should be 2 rounds sittin on the floor instead of in his gun.

in army of darkness, Bruce Campbell fires a lever action rifle like 20 times without reloading

I can't count how many movies I've seen where someone shoots the windshield of a car & miraculously the driver isn't hit. it seems to happen a couple different times in "Bullitt" that I remember

Back in 1980 they were filming, The Mountain Men with Heston and Kieth. The film was made in Wyoming on the Togwotee Pass. I was there visiting the set and a friend who was a horse wrangler for the movie. All of the rifles and tomahawks were molded rubber. They had hired extras from local "Buckskinners" clubs. The locals were told that no real firearms would be allowed on the set.
When Heston fired a live blank the arms specialist handed him the gun and retrieved it and locked it up. I sat in amazement, now that was some real gun control.

Check out the shootout in the movie "Open Range", with Robert Duvall and Kevin Costner. Costner fires 10 or 11 times with one sixgun at one guy in the barn yard.

If you ever watched the really old westerns, they never ran out of bullets and they must have been very under powered because the had to throw them by flipping the barrel forward.

I was watching one of those cheesy murder tv shows where someone was murdered with a snubnose .38 and it shows casings hitting the ground as the murder fires.

"The Outlaw Josie Wales. He retrieves his pistol from the burned out homestead"

Speaking from personnel experience with a house fire, that is possible. I retrieved a canvas tool bag with tools in it from my house. The ceiling fell on it and kept it from burning. Of course I'm sure Josie didn't have dry wall in his cabin.

A little trivia question... what is the major gun screw up in the TV show "The Rifleman"? It never was fixed and stayed with the show as long as it ran.

I remember that, they also said the Glock had a porcelain side so it wasn't detectable by metal detectors. Maybe this was just to move the plot along, or maybe it was just a foul up.
