Top 5 Myths about Guns That Hollywood Taught Us
Forget what you see in the latest action movies or even video games, these gun myths shouldn’t be believed. We see it everywhere; James Bond, Westerns, Call of Duty, Fast and Furious, Terminator, Black Hawk Down, The Expendables, Goldeneye, Battlefield, Taken, Die Hard, Bon Cop Bad Cop, The Matrix, and so on – They’re all Bullshit, but we fall for them thanks to Hollywood. Here’s looking at you Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.
Can Bullets shoot through cars? Will gas canisters explode if you shoot them? Am I safe from bullets underwater? Those questions and more will be answered in this edition of Watchmojo’s Top 5 Myths.

A gunshot is on average 160 decimals. A suppressor and silencer removes 30 decimals. So a silencer equals 130 decimals. But an airplane engine is 140 decimals. Um no, a silencer takes off more than that!
The reason why a fuel tank won't explode when you shoot it is because the it's the fuel vapour which causes the explosion. One you missed was shooting out tyres on vehicles it doesn't matter the round bullets will ricochet. Some useful information for you with the right gun you can shoot through an engine block and at the beginning of Dirty Harry Clint Eastwood was using a single action .41 cal Smith & Wesson because the props department was having trouble finding a .44 you can see Clint hand cock it when the thug goes for the shotgun and Clint says "go ahead make my day"
What about: "Bullets dont usually kill you outright". The most annoying myth is that getting hit by a bullet in the chest will kill you. Even if the heart gets completely destroyed you usually have about 30 seconds of oxygen left to do shit. If the lung is not too damage you can do a lot of screaming and yelling at that point. Normally, only a direct hit in a very special region of the brain will kill you outright.
The obsession with 5.56 ammunition and the M4 being so lethal! Ever see a real sniper using anything smaller than 7.62? Also let's not forget how awesome 9mm pistols and submachine guns are at hundreds of metres.
A car tire rim is super strong,most rifles can go through but after hitting the side and then the rim then the next rim it’s energetic level is decreased, still can kill but lessens the lethality rate.
Myth #1. People (usually bad guys) die right away when shot. Unless it’s at a few exact spots, death from a gun is much more visceral. Usually there’s lots of screaming, bleeding, crying: you get the picture.
I hate that damn near all semi-autos (in movies) when they run out of bullets, somehow the slide magically doesn't lock back lol. If you have an auto and you hit the last round, MOST guns will lock back and there is no way you won't know you're out of bullets. Then they pull the trigger and click nothing happens. This is ridiculous. Make the character use a revolver. That I could believe if they don't count the few rounds, there is nothing like a slide locking back on a revolver and it could happened that they pull the trigger and nothing happens, but not with most autos. Also, when people rack the slide or a Shotgun when they are getting ready to leave and then do it again when they get where they are going or confront who they are after. Hollywood, we know they didn't take the bullet out of the chamber so they could do it again so please stick to just once.
Um....some of these “myths” are true. I would suggest looking at real science. For example, a silenced 22 caliber pistol is pretty quiet. Also, a car will explode if a gas tank is hit. This video should be viewed subjectively and the information in it should be taken on a case by case basis.
Well this is the most accurate list so far. Congratulations Mojo. I nitpick everything so it's a compliment coming from me. Across the river about a mile and a half we here people firing off firearms with suppressors. We can notice the difference but it is still noticed from a mile and a half. The AR15 sounds like a .22 instead of the .223. It might not wake us up at night like it usually does without the suppressors but if it was fired inside a building you'd definitely notice a gun was just fired instead of the movies where nobody even hears a thing 😂😂
Obviously written by someone who has never heard a GOOD silencer on an auto pistol firing subsonic ammo. There is absolutely NO sound other than the action, the bullet whizzing through the air, & hitting the target. Been there.
Even a rifle firing supersonic ammo gets reasonably quiet with a modern silencer, but the crack of the mach wave cannot be silenced.
Bullets can travel a short distance through water but are deflected by the impact and don't fly straight.
Cars are not bullet proof, but the metal can often (not always) deflect a bullet. Locks, hinges, etc deflect rather well. Not a secure protection, but better than NOTHING.
Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
