Nice Gun!

Okay, did anyone else notice his line of sight? I'm not sure if he even has a sight picture with that position. Oh, Hollywood, you've got to do better than that!

It's hard to tell but that was the first thing that jumped out at me. It looks like he's staring at the mount.

Thanks for posting the picture though!

Looks like the gas valve is in the adverse conditions position too, maybe it needs to be cleaned! Or maybe thats what it takes to fire blanks?

Uh, guys, it's a movie, and he's an actor, not Carlos Hathcock.

And I don't think those pantywaist directors give much thought to proper firearm technique. At least he had the end that is open pointed away from him.

:D Only on a gun board would folks look at a scene and find the glaring deficiencies (to us, anyway). :lol:

Sort of like watching a movie about the military and wondering why a captain wears scrambled eggs on his bus driver hat, or a C-17 carrying something like five tanks and 200 jumpseats.

Watch the opening scene with him and Pachino in "Righteous Kill". He is supposed to be some kind of dead-eye shooter. He holds his Glock with the right hand and crosses over to shoot left-eye dominant.

I would certainly agree that he is no Carlos.

Being cross-dominant makes you less accurate? :?:

Plenty of people shoot very well with this.

The only thing that will give you a skill level half as much as Hathcock's is practice regardless of cross-dominance.

He is just an actor, he is most defiantly not trying to fool the locals, just the tourists 8)

Looks to me like he just got tired of the meeting the Fockers.....
I guess Greg is finally out of the circle of trust for good!
HA!

From a bench rest there should not be too much of a problem with cross eye dominance. In dynamic situations cross eye can hurt you by putting you in strange contortions for shooting anything but isosceles.

Being a lefty I have shot plenty trying to shoot right handed. I thought I could overcome the natural handedness. After much effort I quit and came out of the closet (so-to-speak) as a lefty and gained some accuracy from the move.

It is irratating watching movies in which they are clueless about guns. That is the left coast for you though. I don't know how many times I hear brass casings hitting the floor after a shotgun is shot. Or the click,click,click noise when you point a gun at someone. Maybe the have built in maracas in there guns.

ROTFLMAO - I don't know how many times a movie has literally been ruined for me because some idiot used the wrong sound effects for a gun like the semi-auto single action 45 with the repeated click sound of a hammer falling on an empty chamber when the character is trying to shoot someone with an empty gun. Even better are the machine guns that go click-click-click-click once they run out of ammunition and the trigger is pulled once. It shows the unbelievable stupidity of the movie folks that they think the gun doesn't' need the cyclic action produced from firing a round to reset the hammer. Somehow that little machine gun hammer just pounds away at the empty chamber as long as the movie star is holding the trigger back. My wife and I crack up every time.

HOWEVER, I would love to get my hands on a few of those "magic" guns. You know the ones, they look like a regular gun, but somehow have 2, 3, or even 4 times the ammo capacity in the same sized magazine. Those magic 1911's that can fire 20 or 30 shots from a single mag - now that's the gun for me!

I swear I have felt my IQ dropping, every time I hear that empty Semi-auto keep clicking...

I take comfort in knowing that I'm not the only overly critical movie watcher in the world. My wife just yells at me and says, "Well don't watch it then!" How the hell am I supposed to rip on actors if I don't watch em'. :)
