Default Use a monster gun, idiot.

Okay, we all know that the people who make movies often don't know, or don't care, about how things actually work in the wonderful world of firearms, even when said firearms are an intergral part of the plot (if I see ONE more movie where bullets are bouncing off the sheet metal/fiberglass of an ordinary car, making those pretty sparks . . . ).

However . . . how come when theres some large, dangerous critter running around eating the two teenagers making out in the car parked by the lake and generally causing havoc, and you call in the team of specialists, experts in guns and knives and who used to give Rambo wedgies, they go after this large armor-plated creature (like a giant croc) or seven story tall T-Rex with puny pop guns like MP5's or even M-16's. These puny rounds just bounce of Mr. Monster, and have about the same result as shooting a bear in the ass with a bb gun.

Will somebody just get a REAL gun and KILL the thing already? I mean, look at the first TREMORS movie - when it broke into Reba's underground rec room, what stopped it -- the AR's, the .357's, the 9mm's ? Heck no. Burt put an end to that sucker with a double rifle in 600 nitro express (or close to it).

When I go into the jungle after a rogue 'saur or giant flying reptiles, I don't want Dolph Lungren backing me up with M-16's in both hands. I'll take some skinny guy with a Barret .50 caliber. And a third guy, whose main qualification is that he runs considerably slower than I do.

personally I'd lay a barrage of 150mm SP guns down on whatever nasty is causing grief and then send in a squadron of Apache choppers followed by a C130 with twin mounted Bofors guns and then go in with a .22 magnum to put a round into it's head to finish it off only way to be sure or better still just go into orbit and nuke it from space just to make real sure.

Never happen. In todays world do you really think you would be allowed to kill a giant pre-historic creature? The DEQ,DEA,CIA,FBI would close the area to the public. They would only say, "I can not answer that, its an on going investigation".

The press conference will start with...

"I was not aware.......but for the good of the American people, we'll apprehend whoever is responsible......"

Excuse me, sir, but your investigation just ate the Lincoln Memorial.
