Dirty Harry shot more ppl in the head and the kegs so unless you were wearing full body armor in Kevlar you would have been killed.

pistol whips knocking people out. it is possible but you would have to hit extremely hard alot harder then in the movies.

I love movies/shows with guns but how wrong they get a lot of shit bugs the hell out of me and loses my interest very quickly.

Don't you dare use HEAT as an example of poor gunplay in movies.

So those are the myths! Well the truths are way more interesting; like you can be shot in the hand and the bullet can exit through your foot because of bullet toppling and bouncing as it may have traveled through your hand, which is the most common place to be shot because people have a habit of holding their hand up to stop someone shooting. The flechette round from the Barrett light .50 can kill you even if it misses you. There is a totally silent gun! It’s called the Welrod. It was invented during WW2 and had a completely silent action. In a ‘world war’ there’s more call for guns, therefore more weird inventions like the German assault rifle that can shoot round corners.

water's a great bulletstop for most small arms but I'm not sure about artillery, or anything in 50 BMG or anything like that.

Perhaps the biggest myth from TV & movies concerning guns is the effect of bullets on the human body. How many times do you see the hero shot but he keeps functioning as normal? The body is made up of mostly water which is almost incompressible. The hydrostatic shock of a bullet entering the body can cause extreme damage to other parts of the body. For instance, when the hero is shot in the shoulder (the usual location for oddly non-effective wounds), the resulting shock wave could cause serious organ damage in the chest. Also, having your shoulder area decimated by a bullet would be quite painful as anyone who has ever experienced a dislocated shoulder will attest.

youre pretty dumb... 30 decibels is not all that comes off from a suppressor. some make guns nearly silent.

Another common myth is that guns kill people which is false. There is no way a gun can fire all by itself.

No you can’t use a gun to pierce your nose. A bullet fired from a gun however will work just fine! 🤣
Taylor Davison (10 days ago)
Here's another myth: dropped guns fire on their own. The NFA disallows this. Any gun manufactured after 1934 is legally required to have internal safeties that prevent a gun from firing when dropped.
Taylor Davison (10 days ago)
Gun powder doesn't explode, it burns. The gases that build up in the cartridge push the projectile forward through the barrel. And it has to burn fast or the round won't work.

Revolvers with a silencer? pointless
ThePhalseProfit (11 days ago)
Hollywood never taught me a thing about guns. My Marine Corps war vet Dad did. He was and still is a Colt .45 1911 believer. I broke the trend. My first handgun purchase was .357 magnum revolver and I was dismayed when I took it out shooting for the first time and realized it didn't shoot 23 rounds without reloading like Hollywood showed.
Croaking Toad (11 days ago)
Yes, bullets can skip across water to some extent ... sounds pretty cool too. Yes and no on the silencer ... more accurately, a suppressor. You can shave a heck of a lot more than 30db off the sound, but the bullet has to be subsonic. Look close, you can find more fun stuff in movies: 1. Shooter checks to make sure his revolver is loaded and opens the cylinder, all primers will have a dent in them the person will close the gun and start blazing away. 2. In a machine gun fight a slo-mo with the brass hitting the floor and you notice the brass has no primer at all! 3. Especially in b movies, every time your hero with a gun enters a room he pulls to slide back on his weapon never having fired it in the first place. 4. Uniformed police officers chambering a round. All departments carry with one in the chamber.

I'm ok with fake Hollywood shit what bugs me is that most of these actors are anti gun but it's ok to show gun violence or the actors using guns to kill the bad guys can we all agree they are hypocrites

So if Ahnold would've walked over and picked up the frozen terminator and not shot him so he could reform as the heat thawed him, Terminator 2 could've ended a lot sooner and Ahnold wouldn't have had to dunk himself in the molten steel. Hmm... guns are bad for happy endings in movies, sometimes.

IHCTerra (15 days ago)
The subsonic round is important to the effectiveness of surpressers. A .22 subsonic round is much quieter even without a supressor and is so quiet that you can hear the action run on the gun with one. You can get lots of different calibers in a subsonic load.

"Can you use a gun to pierce your nose?" Give it a try and let me know how that works out for you.
blaine pond (15 days ago)
truthfully a silencer on a Mac 10 or a mac-11 sounds like a little fart when you pull the trigger doesn't silence them but really all you hear is the action going back and forth

Tannerite compound will explode when hit by a bullet only a rifle bullet
blaine pond (15 days ago)
I like it when they run out of blanks an the slides locked back waiting for waiting for another magazine but they're still shooting, and when they use I believe what they're called is training pistols that are .177 caliber pellet guns that are identical replicas of their firearm counterpart and they show you the muzzle of something that looks like a 9 mm and it's got a barrel on it the size of a BB

And Diesel Vehicle Never Explodes In Reality!
Grigori Rasputin (17 days ago)
The one that always makes me groan, is when the good guys, frequently cops, are about to go into a bad situation where there will be lots of shooting, rack the slides on their handguns and dramatically chamber a round. Carrying with an empty chamber is for morons. Pro's know their gun has a chambered round and will not need to chamber one before going into battle.

GUNSandTRIGGER (23 days ago)
I'm surprised to say you did your research, well done.
What's the point of the suppressor if doesn't make your gun quite
BedTime (22 days ago)
Increases situational awareness, reduces the need for coms and earpro, makes your gun more pleasant to shoot, makes you a more accurate shooter thanks to the gun being more pleasant to shoot, makes you a more disciplined shooter since your gun is more pleasant to shoot, makes shooting indoors or next to walls or next to other soldiers no longer headache inducing/blinding, captures muzzle blast so it doesn't kick up a cloud of dirt/sand/dust when shooting prone or off barricade. It also makes the muzzle report less loud as to make it possible to mask the location of the shooter by making the sonic crack louder than the actual report of the rifle, thus it's very disorienting for people getting shot downrange.
OddBallDaddy O (24 days ago)
Noice hopefully now these whiny liberals will stop thinking guns are just straight up death steel with unlimited ammo, massive recoil, and fully auto revolvers.

Sergeant Logan Walker (30 days ago)
By the way guys, the technical (proper) name for a "silencer" is a "suppressor ".
Aleida Blackwood (30 days ago)
There should be an action or war movie where they cut to every person in every action segment reloading their gun. Seems to be a problem that they don't.
Aleida Blackwood (30 days ago)
Love how this is the entertainment factor when it comes to movies, these aren't supposed to be overanalyzed nor are they to be taken seriously. I also love the one fact of how shooting a gun into the water automatically means your not going to die / get wounded whatsoever if you get hit by one of the bullets and because of basic physics it'll slow it down soooooo much that if you get hit by a bullet in the water nothing will happen to you. As for the body armor segment, military and police do not use hard plate body armor, only soft body armor / kevlar vests. If you're looking at a full set of hard plate body armor along with the plate carrier price range is like $150-$200+ as for AR500 armor. Not to mention the difference in weight and bulk.

suppressor are one thing, silencers another, there are actually sub sonic bullets when combine with silencers it wont make much of a sound, Germans used them in ww2, allies hit by them believed they were hit by stray bullets, the problem is you have to be really close to target

How about the bullshit of bullets knocking people back? Or every time someone raises a gun there's a "clicking sound" or even on a striker fired handgun the person magically pulls back a hammer? Fucking stupid Hollywood Jews!

BedTime (1 month ago)
No, very few are. There's not all too much reason to bullet proof police car doors, and officers are universally trained to use the engine block for cover, never the doors.
Gareth Dunford (1 month ago)
It annoys me when someone in a film pulls the hammer back on a semi auto pistol.
Skankerman Studios (1 month ago)
Correction. People are FAR less likely to hear a silenced weapon that fires subsonic ammunition. If the suppressor is good enough for the weapon you're using and you're using subsonic ammo, the only thing you'll hear is the gun's firing mechanism and some of the gas escaping. The MP5SD has an integrated suppressor and it's famous for being one of the quietest firearms in existence. Even some of the louder weapons, if fired indoors with a suppressor will keep the neighbors from identifying it as a gunshot. Which is perfect for assassins like James Bond. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPjliwcbKFg
James Beard (1 month ago)
There's a myth you missed at the end, handling guns is easy. Either holding two guns in one hand, the recoil of sub-machineguns being able to be compensated with one hand, or the ever popular holding the gun sideways and still hitting a target.
MisterTbone (1 month ago)
the WORST offender is lack of recoil
BedTime (1 month ago)
That's more of a byproduct of Hollywood guns being plastic props, CO2 guns, or blank guns. You can't create much recoil with those.

In the terminator 2 clip the gasoline was leaking out of the truck and he shot the gasoline so that’s kinda what made an explosion 💥

+ChasesAnimations Why would the truck explode?
ChasesAnimations (1 month ago)
BedTime I know the point I was making was that if he shot the gasoline it would catch on fire then the truck would explode
BedTime (1 month ago)
Gasoline doesn't explode. It just catches on fire. Also that was diesel and not gasoline. Diesel is actually very unreactive and has a very high flash point so it will not catch fire even by open flame. Sparks are unreliable at igniting diesel fuel as well.

it annoys me when i see people shooting their guns inside of a car in movies, you know if this was for real the noise would be just horrible and could make you deaf, the hot shells going out of the gun would probably be annoying too
Charlie Pruett (1 month ago)
the one that pisses me off the most is that every time a gun is raised in TV and movies you here the hammer being cocked. like in one scene a person will draw and raise a gun, put it down, and raise it again with the same noise. the worst thing is when they raise the gun, you hear the click, THEN they cock the hammer with the gun up. WTF was the original click then!!!
Charlie Pruett (1 month ago)
also when you hear the noise on a glock or another gun with an enclosed hammer.

slower bullets will be lethal up the 8 feet underwater when fired from directly above the water. movies might exaggerate but they are semi-accurate that yes, in shallow water you can be shot to death, generally. Lots of equations and math stuff involved, the degree on the bullet entering the water, the speed, the bullet size, density of water, etc.
