Most myths, misinformation and confusion regarding firearms and investigation technique, come from..............HOLLYWOOD!
Sometimes a movie or TV series has the benefit of good technical advisers, but most do not. It sometimes became a real problem in my former life as a detective, when trying to convince a victim / witness / juror, that just because they saw it on Tee-Vee doesn't make it true.
Try to keep things in perspective. Hollywood is entertainment. They sometimes make stuff up to fit into the script. It isn't real.
