What’s Wrong With This Picture: Sons of Anarchy Edition by Robert Farago | Sep 10, 2014 | 113 comments facebook twitter linkedin email [h/t FC] comments lolkeke says: September 10, 2014 at 19:00 An entire cartridge, bullet and all. And its not all destroyed by the impact in a human. Nicely done. Reply Marcus Aurelius Payne says: September 10, 2014 at 19:20 They did a Kennedy assassination episode? Reply Howdy says: September 10, 2014 at 21:29 Nope, They hammered in the round. Reply Marcus Aurelius Payne says: September 11, 2014 at 07:19 So THAT’S why hells’ angels carry ball peen hammers! Dickie J says: September 10, 2014 at 19:24 Theoretically you could shoot something like a 9mm cartridge as a sabot round out of a larger cartridge, like something in the .50 caliber range. So I think these guys are just ahead of the curve and all y’all are just a bunch of haters. Reply Zach says: September 10, 2014 at 20:42 The trick would be making the cartridge you fired out of the sabot fire too, for range extension. Or just for the coolz. Reply Jim March says: September 10, 2014 at 22:27 No, see,you load a 32ACP into a 357 shell. You charge the 357 shell as normal. You stuffed the 32 shell with black powder, to the brim, and sealed the primer pocket with a glob of wax. About halfway down the barrel the ignition behind the 32ACP shell burns through the wax and sets off the BP, which uses the primer pocket as the rocket nozzle. It clears the muzzle at 1,400fps but 20ft downrange it’s picked up another 500fps from the rocket effect. 🙂 One day I want to actually test that theory. Clay-in-UT says: September 10, 2014 at 22:29 G_D_ Son you are f’n brilliant! I thought the other posters of the 223 round coming out brass and all was a joke. Now that it is on SOA, It must be the new sabot rounds. So, what you are saying is these are fired out of the new “ghost guns” I have heard so much about? Sh** I gotta’ get me one of these! Reply Ed says: September 11, 2014 at 06:17 @Jim March, Is that sort of like a Turduckin? Reply Eric J says: September 11, 2014 at 10:07 “Ballistic Turducken” kinda has a nice ring to it Rich Grise says: September 16, 2014 at 01:19 I want to try Mrs. Wolowitz’s turbriskefil. I’ve never had gefelte fish, but it must be pretty good. AndrewPVD says: September 11, 2014 at 07:12 Well done sir, Well done. *clap* Reply Jim says: September 11, 2014 at 08:57 I’ll see your clap and raise you another clap. *clap* *clap* JhonnieB says: September 11, 2014 at 15:15 Crack me up!!! Reply FC says: September 10, 2014 at 19:38 http://www.panoramio.com/photo/111601963 Here is a clearer picture. They actually wrapped it in what appears to be electrical tape so as not to be so shiny. I love Hollywood. Reply Dickie J says: September 10, 2014 at 19:52 Millions budgeted for special effects but not 10 cents for a bullet? Not even a pair of pliers on set to pull one out? It’s pretty sad. Reply tactical mall ninja says: September 10, 2014 at 20:09 But that might set off the “explosives”! Clay-in-UT says: September 10, 2014 at 22:33 All they would of had to do was ask anyone with… Wait, wait wait, there might be a possibility that no one one the set has actually fired a real gun… I will be putting in my resume as a “firearms expert” for any of their spin-offs Eric J says: September 10, 2014 at 21:35 I think it’s a lacquered case like Brown Bear, not electrical tape. (Someone just grabbed the cheapest box of 9mm on the shelf lol) Reply Jus Bill says: September 10, 2014 at 21:54 It looks more like it was Scotch Taped together. The bullet looks wrong. Reply -Peter says: September 10, 2014 at 19:46 Shouldn’t a show about gun smuggling bikers feature a little bit more accuracy about guns and biking? Reply Keith says: September 10, 2014 at 21:12 Why is anyone surprised? There’s one episode where the IRA were selling AKs to gang bangers, they made a big deal about having scopes and foregrip. But when they were “testing” them, they used neither. Reply Michael in GA visiting Detroit says: September 10, 2014 at 22:51 Off topic but I was denied entry into the Tiger’s game tonight for CCW. Anybody knew about this new policy change? Michigan guys? Speak up! Reply That Guy says: September 11, 2014 at 02:31 Did they discover it on a search upon on entry or did you volunteer the info? I visit the in laws in Detroit frequently and this would be good to know. Reply Michael in GA says: September 11, 2014 at 05:57 No I did not try to bring it in. I just stood there with a look on my face that said “you gatta be shitting me”. They asked me did I need help. I told them my predicament and they got a supervisor and then he went “upstairs” to talk to higher ups and called the guys at the gate to tell them there was nothing they could do for me. So one guy tells me to find a lady with a big bag…I stopped him right there and said “yeah I noticed you guys were not thouroghly searching bags, but I am not going to try that.” It turned out okay. I went down the block and watched the game from a tequilla and tacos bar and stayed out of the rain. People seem nice in Detroit…It is a shame this city sucks so bad. KingSarc48265 says: September 11, 2014 at 05:11 Any entertainment venue that seats more than 5000 is a prohibited place for your CPL by state law in Michigan. VERY sure Comerica has more than double that number. You might as well have been trying to carry into Greektown or Motor City casino. Brush up on the laws before taking your gun out of the house again. Reply KingSarc48265 says: September 11, 2014 at 05:21 Whoops! That was a bit harsh, didnt notice you were visiting from GA. Havent had my coffee yet. Sorry about that. Michael in GA says: September 11, 2014 at 05:48 Yeah, until I saw your follow up comment, I was trying to figure out if you were living up to your name. I was here last year and there were no metal detectors. I practice my right to bear arms everywhere there is no search and sesure. Michael in GA says: September 11, 2014 at 06:10 You know what the definition of irony is?… Standing outside a venue that has just barred you from entering for exercising your second amendment rights while the National Anthem plays inside. Reply Wiregrass says: September 11, 2014 at 08:07 +1 Indeed. A truly sad state of affairs. Steve in RI says: September 10, 2014 at 19:01 ShootingTheBull410 found another non-expanding .380! Reply Phil COV says: September 10, 2014 at 19:13 Ha! Reply Scrubula says: September 10, 2014 at 20:43 Made my day Reply Sheepdog6 says: September 10, 2014 at 19:01 Magic!!!! Reply MotoJB says: September 10, 2014 at 19:02 At least it’s bloody…hollywood seems to get the blood part somewhat right…sometimes. 😉 Reply Daniel Silverman says: September 10, 2014 at 19:02 Man he threw that thing awful hard!!! Reply Esteve says: September 11, 2014 at 09:46 Had the same thought as Daniel. Whoever (Whomever?- for the haters) threw that cartridge had a good arm. Reply Jim March says: September 11, 2014 at 10:20 OMG, I KNOW, IT WAS THAT CRAZY GERMAN LOONIE JORGE FROM “THE SLINGSHOT CHANNEL!!!” 🙂 Seriously, it’s a good thing that guy wasn’t born before WW2 or Hitler would have had a bunch of truly weird terror weapons. Reply Matt in FL says: September 11, 2014 at 17:43 “Whoever” is correct in this case. An easy rule of thumb is to replace the questionable who/whom with a male pronoun, i.e. he or him. If the pronoun that fits ends in ‘m’ (him), you use whom. If it doesn’t, you use who. To wit: “Whoever/whomever threw that cartridge had a good arm.” He threw the cartridge/He had a good arm versus Him threw the cartridge/Him had a good arm “He” fits, “him” doesn’t. Ergo, the proper form is “whoever.” Reply Indiana Tom says: September 10, 2014 at 19:11 It looks like a Hostess food product? A new cherry coconut flavored comfort food? Reply Indiana Tom says: September 10, 2014 at 19:13 The shiny thing looks like a hard candy coated chocolate treat. Reply Wow says: September 10, 2014 at 19:13 Wow…reusable bullets! Shoot a man and it automatically reloads itself while in the body of the attacker. Ready for reuse! Amazing… What an age we live in… Reply ThomasR says: September 10, 2014 at 19:19 I’m shocked and dismayed to find that that cold blooded killers portrayed on the show couldn’t recognize the idiocy of an unfired cartridge portrayed as injuring or killing someone . Well, not really. I would be really amazed if any of the actors acting like an “outlaw biker gang” would even own any guns let alone know how to use one in a real self defense situation. Reply Jus Bill says: September 10, 2014 at 21:56 Do any of those clowns ride IRL? I refuse to watch that waste of electrons. Reply Cave Johnson says: September 10, 2014 at 19:20 Looks like one of our products. 65% more bullet, per bullet. Reply Nagurski says: September 10, 2014 at 19:46 Life will rue the day it thought it could give you lemons. Reply Matt in FL says: September 11, 2014 at 05:49 Subtle, and I almost missed it. Well done. Reply Holepunch says: September 10, 2014 at 19:20 I sat in astonishment when I saw that. How could anyone be so clueless? Reply Mark N. says: September 10, 2014 at 19:22 I wish the picture wasn’t so fuzzy. It looks to me as if the casing and the bullet are at least separated, but that they are of different calibers. Reply Geoff PR says: September 10, 2014 at 23:05 Someone posted a link to a clearer pic… Reply jimmyjames says: September 10, 2014 at 19:23 Dont know as I do not watch tv shows that glorify organized crime and the thug biker lifestyle. Reply Mark Lloyd says: September 10, 2014 at 19:31 I try not to watch reality themed TV shows as I find myself almost insulted by the raw idiocy of them. It’s like the dumbing down of America. Reply Craig says: September 10, 2014 at 19:33 Take the next step and give up TV altogether. Your bank account will thank you 😉 Reply Mark Lloyd says: September 10, 2014 at 21:33 What, and miss Walking Dead??? I’d rather wipe.my butt with a poison ivy leaf! Reply Ing says: September 10, 2014 at 22:05 That can be arranged. 🙂 JR_in_NC says: September 10, 2014 at 21:43 “give up TV altogether. Your bank account will thank you” And your brain. Reply Jus Bill says: September 10, 2014 at 21:57 And here I thought it was a SITCOM. Reply Mark Lloyd says: September 10, 2014 at 22:41 Just as bad Reply FC says: September 10, 2014 at 19:25 Hmmmm, I’ve seen that picture before… Reply Full Cleveland says: September 10, 2014 at 19:29 There is no Israeli Supermodel in the picture. Reply johnny says: September 10, 2014 at 19:32 Writers and directors are dumbshits. Reply Timmy! says: September 10, 2014 at 19:35 I remember the “Who shot Mr. Burns?” episodes of “The Simpsons” had the same thing. They went looking for the bullet Smithers had fired and found it, casing and all, stuck in Jasper’s wooden leg. Oh crap, I just realized, I’m a geek! Reply Bob Wall says: September 10, 2014 at 19:48 Same thing as this, from “Jax bin Anarchy” http://whatthecrap.wordpress.com/files/2007/08/captsgekwe52140807225824photo04photodefault-512×369.jpg Reply Another Robert says: September 10, 2014 at 20:05 Ha, one of my favorite “don’t tell me the media aren’t biased” exhibits. That photo ran for several days straight , from Agence France Press via Yahoo News, purporting to how an Iraqi villager showing “bullets” she “found” in the wall of her house after those trigger-happy racist oppressor American soldiers drove through shooting the place up. The Net exploded with pics of real fired bullets, but I never saw any kind of retraction or “clarification”. Reply DrVino says: September 10, 2014 at 20:46 Being a liberal apparatchik means never having to say you’re sorry…. Reply JasonM says: September 10, 2014 at 19:49 A few years ago, on Mythbusters, they had an animation (as they frequently do) explaining a rifle myth. A fully cased, bottlenecked, rifle round came out of the muzzle of the rifle. Reply DrVino says: September 10, 2014 at 20:47 HOW!?!?!?!?! Reply JasonM says: September 10, 2014 at 21:29 Apparently the animator didn’t understand how ammunition works. Reply Another Robert says: September 10, 2014 at 19:53 You know, you can buy the bullets separately at one of the better-stocked gun stores. (You all DID know that actually). You would think the Hollywood propmasters would know that. Reply Jus Bill says: September 10, 2014 at 22:00 Propmasters cost extra money, you know. Reply Pg says: September 10, 2014 at 20:10 In the show “Justified” Rayland Givens drops a bullet on bad guy Wynn Duffy’s chest after knocking him to the ground and says, “the next ones coming a lot faster.” It looks like Rayland made a guest appearance on SOA…. PS: one of the coolest lines I’ve ever heard. Reply Grindstone says: September 10, 2014 at 20:38 Agreed, that was one of the most badass moments of the show. Reply KC in NorCal says: September 10, 2014 at 21:18 Agreed, for me it is a tossup between that and when somebody pulls a knife on him. He pulls his duster back to reveal his gun and says “S#%t, I forgot my knife.” Reply Pg says: September 10, 2014 at 22:13 True! Whoever is writing for Rayland is fantastic. Just a great show in general. Reply KC in NorCal says: September 10, 2014 at 22:43 I saw a piece on the author of the books the show is based on, wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of the dialogue is from the books. Something like 2 seasons ago Givins had a line about the people having a right to keep and bear arms, don’t remember it. But at the time I thought it was good. Ment to rematch it to hear what he said more closely but never did. Pretty good writing either way. Wiregrass says: September 11, 2014 at 08:17 Elmore Leonard was one of the greatest crime fiction writers of all time. He studied Detroit PD case files where he learned his comic insight into the stupidity of criminals. Matt in FL says: September 10, 2014 at 23:08 The “coming faster” line was great, but I’m still partial to “When you meet an asshole in the morning, you met an asshole. When you run into assholes all day, you’re the asshole.” Reply KCK says: September 10, 2014 at 23:24 Although that cartridge was later used to attempt to frame Rayland Reply Sian says: September 11, 2014 at 00:06 Rayland later admitted that at the time he was mostly thinking about how cool the line was, and not so much how it could and would come back to bite him. Reply That Guy says: September 11, 2014 at 02:35 Justified is awesome!! And Raylan has lots of great lines. Reply Robert Seddon says: September 10, 2014 at 20:27 I loved the “the next one will come a lot faster” line .. I might need to remember that one…. LOL.. Robert Seddon Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: September 10, 2014 at 20:41 Maybe they did that on purpose just to see if we were paying attention. That or somebody forgot to put the pliers back after using them. Reply S. Cautela says: September 10, 2014 at 20:53 Wow… And I thought the “hollow point” cartridge that Martin Riggs threatened to kill himself with in Lethal Weapon was bad… This is ridiculous!… That being said I actually think that this error was by design. A cartridge is much more recognizable to the average non-firearm owning layman than a deformed bullet… They probably thought that an accurate representation wouldn’t be recognized by the unwashed masses. Reply Another Robert says: September 10, 2014 at 21:18 Actually, I know I have seen several Westerns, movies and TV, where the ol’ doc fishes a bullet out of someone and drops it in the pan of water and whiskey that he “sanitized” his hands with. And it was always just a little hunk of metal, not a whole cartridge. Reply S. Cautela says: September 10, 2014 at 21:44 People who watch Western films or grew up in the 1950’s when Westerns were a substantially larger portion of television programming aren’t who we’re talking about here… More so the lefty Hollywood directors and producers who know that there is a large portion of their viewing base that don’t know the difference between cartridges and bullets… Either that or they themselves don’t know the difference between cartridges and bullets… I tend to think the former. With the amount of gunplay on that show I’m sure that at least one technical advisor would tell the director that what he’s showing is BS. Reply KCK says: September 10, 2014 at 23:27 As Hickock45 pointed out, many of the lever action rifle’s in 1870-80s movie settings, was actually in 1892 model Winchester Another Robert says: September 11, 2014 at 12:13 Not to mention movies set in the late 1860s–where the pistols also tend to be about 10 years in the future. Mark Lloyd says: September 10, 2014 at 22:50 Exactly. That was my thought, but didn’t want to structure an entire paragraph laying on my back near Yellowstone. Laziness strikes. Reply .9mm says: September 10, 2014 at 21:03 Also the revolver cocking sound whenever someone pulls out a glock lol Reply Dickie J says: September 10, 2014 at 21:30 God that’s annoying. Apparently guns make all these cocking sounds when you’re just holding them. I think all mine are defective. I do like folks like Dynamic Pie Concepts who make fun of those cliches in their videos. Reply Mark N. says: September 10, 2014 at 21:44 Or when cops go charging into a building, confront the bad guy, and to show they mean business when they order him to drop his gun, thumb the hammers on their Glocks. Reply Eric J says: September 10, 2014 at 21:31 The worst gun scene I’ve ever seen I haven’t seen since to find out what it was: I was channel-surfing and came across a lady detective who was in an ill-lit parking garage confronting a bad guy… Of course when she drew her Glock they had a revolver sound-effect, but the best was yet to come… The bad guy advanced on her so she emphasized her willingness to shoot him by using her thumb to ‘cock’ the Glock, including a SAA triple-click sound effect! I wonder what was going through that actress’ mind when the director told her to wiggle her thumb in the air behind the Glock as if there were a hammer there… Reply Jim March says: September 11, 2014 at 00:50 At least they didn’t put a magazine into a revolver. That’s completely impossible…well, unless you’re me. 🙂 http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2014/03/03/maurice-frankenruger-magazine-fed-revolver Reply Ralph says: September 10, 2014 at 21:35 No doubt this cartridge was part of Dallas Archer’s personal supply. Very personal. Google Dallas Archer if you don’t get the reference. Reply Mark N. says: September 10, 2014 at 21:47 I always hate it when the lovely leading lady fishes bullets out of the hero’s body (e.g., Bourne Identity) and the rounds are right under the skin. Reply Scrubula says: September 10, 2014 at 22:00 Or somehow stuck in the arm when they should have passed straight through… Reply dcSODAK says: September 10, 2014 at 22:39 It’s just a tv show, it’s not meant to be 100% accurate. A tv show is just meant to draw viewers in, not to speculate if a round fired into a person’s body was 100% accurate. Reply CarlosT says: September 11, 2014 at 03:34 Yeah, well, something better than 0% accuracy shouldn’t be too much to ask. Reply PavePusher says: September 10, 2014 at 23:02 http://m.memegen.com/vc81qm.jpg Reply Nj2Az says: September 11, 2014 at 00:31 If its already been mentioned, sorry, but twice in the season premiere Juice cocked a Glock.,,sigh Reply Grindstone says: September 11, 2014 at 02:32 SoA apparently know f*ck-all about guns: http://instagram.com/p/swWbnFEO7a?utm_source=partner&utm_medium=embed&utm_campaign=video Reply Another Robert says: September 11, 2014 at 12:23 Maybe that’s the sound of the “safe action” trigger dingus being pushed back into the trigger? Reply DaveL says: September 11, 2014 at 04:17 If this were a year ago I might have thought the picture showed the last 9mm round available at Wal-Mart and the blood was shed by the shoppers fighting over it. Reply Fug says: September 11, 2014 at 07:22 I smuggle loaded ammo in my body cavity all the time, get with the times fellas. Reply joe says: September 11, 2014 at 08:05 how about “under the dome” ? one of the main charactors that “knows” about firearms and has always had one in the chamber when he has to pull it, goes to clean it, he drops the mag never racks the slide then starts waving it around and even manages to point at own head Reply wvumounties8 says: September 11, 2014 at 08:12 Casing still there……….bullet never fired. Reply N8thecowboy says: September 11, 2014 at 10:15 I don’t think there is a shell on that. It looks like just a bullet it to me. It should be smashed up for sure, but I can’t see a case on it. Maybe you guys have better computers than me. Reply esitue says: September 11, 2014 at 11:45 No, not better computers Reply Rand says: September 11, 2014 at 10:58 The recovery of an intact cartridge is no dumber than this tweet from the show’s creator. ““Watched DEVIL’S RIDE,” Sutter tweeted on May 21. “Probably get in trouble for saying this, but i’m pretty sure my SOA actors could kick the s[***] out of this ‘real’ MC.” My fake bikers are tougher than your fake bikers? That takes brass. Whoa, pun intended? Reply Avery says: September 11, 2014 at 13:21 Yep. I posted about it on SOA’s Facebook page immediately after that episode aired. Obviously, never got a response. Reply Mike_M says: September 11, 2014 at 15:23 Didn’t anyone notice this last season when it was first shown…? Reply Cynical Bastard says: September 11, 2014 at 20:02 Heh. In a criminal show that shall not be named, a dude gets shot with a .223 fired from a Ruger 10/22. And then they recover a pistol bullet from his noggin. …then again, those are the same people who can not tell a 9 mm pistol bullet from a 5.56 rifle one. Reply Doc_03911 says: September 12, 2014 at 06:13 During the first episode of the new season, I observed an audible pistol hammer being cocked while the character “Jax” held a glock, LoL!
