Yeah I agree. What's worse is that, in movies and TV, some of the most ridiculous things get done with firearms that aren't even remotely possible in real life and it really gives the uninformed public a lot of misconceptions that eventually get used against us. For example, CSI Miami has a TON of incorrect and completely false gun-related things in it. I enjoy the show, though I can't stand all of the stupid sh*t that happens on that show. In one of the more recent episodes from last season, an arms dealer started selling some "Fused Alloy" bullets. Basically what they were talking about was frangible ammo. In the show, they were saying it is the most deadly ammo known to man, and that it can easily pierce through any body armor. Nevermind the fact that this is impossible since frangible ammo is designed to fragment on impact and provide the least amount of penetration possible. There was also an episode where an arms dealer on the street just happened to get a hold of one of those Metal Storm things. You know, the firearm devices and weapons batteries that are designed to fire utilizing electronic pulses, so they have a ridiculous rate of fire, plus they have a ton of barrels? Yeah, right, like one of those prototypes (of which there are probably only a couple in the world) is just going to go missing from some DOD contractor's lab and of course no one is going to be looking for it except good old Miami-Dade PD officer David Caruso, in all his sunglasses donning glory. lol I could go on and on and on.....but then I'm sure ALL of you are painfully aware of the stupidity on tv these days.
Yeah, movie guns are pretty stupid, but that's what makes them fun.
"RoboCop's gun, referred to in the script as an Auto-9, was a modified Beretta M93R: The barrel was extended and modified to resemble a casket. The weapon has two fire modes, semi-automatic and three-round burst, the latter giving it its reference name, because when bursts are fired in quick succession the weapon seems automatic, though M93Rs are not automatic."
