Gun Tweet of the Day: James Patterson’s Deep, Unedited Thoughts on ‘Assault Weapons’ 113 COMMENTS An entire cartridge, bullet and all. And its not all destroyed by the impact in a human. Nicely done. Reply They did a Kennedy assassination episode? Reply Nope, They hammered in the round. Reply So THAT’S why hells’ angels carry ball peen hammers! 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 The trick would be making the cartridge you fired out of the sabot fire too, for range extension. Or just for the coolz. Reply 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. 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 @Jim March, Is that sort of like a Turduckin? Reply “Ballistic Turducken” kinda has a nice ring to it I want to try Mrs. Wolowitz’s turbriskefil. I’ve never had gefelte fish, but it must be pretty good. Well done sir, Well done. *clap* Reply I’ll see your clap and raise you another clap. *clap* *clap* Crack me up!!! Reply 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 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 But that might set off the “explosives”! 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 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 It looks more like it was Scotch Taped together. The bullet looks wrong. Reply Shouldn’t a show about gun smuggling bikers feature a little bit more accuracy about guns and biking? Reply 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 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 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 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. 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 Whoops! That was a bit harsh, didnt notice you were visiting from GA. Havent had my coffee yet. Sorry about that. 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. 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 +1 Indeed. A truly sad state of affairs. ShootingTheBull410 found another non-expanding .380! Reply Ha! Reply Made my day Reply Magic!!!! Reply At least it’s bloody…hollywood seems to get the blood part somewhat right…sometimes. 😉 Reply Man he threw that thing awful hard!!! Reply Had the same thought as Daniel. Whoever (Whomever?- for the haters) threw that cartridge had a good arm. Reply 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 “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 It looks like a Hostess food product? A new cherry coconut flavored comfort food? Reply The shiny thing looks like a hard candy coated chocolate treat. Reply 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 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 Do any of those clowns ride IRL? I refuse to watch that waste of electrons. Reply Looks like one of our products. 65% more bullet, per bullet. Reply Life will rue the day it thought it could give you lemons. Reply Subtle, and I almost missed it. Well done. Reply I sat in astonishment when I saw that. How could anyone be so clueless? Reply 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 Someone posted a link to a clearer pic… Reply Dont know as I do not watch tv shows that glorify organized crime and the thug biker lifestyle. Reply 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 Take the next step and give up TV altogether. Your bank account will thank you 😉 Reply What, and miss Walking Dead??? I’d rather wipe.my butt with a poison ivy leaf! Reply That can be arranged. 🙂 “give up TV altogether. Your bank account will thank you” And your brain. Reply And here I thought it was a SITCOM. Reply Just as bad Reply Hmmmm, I’ve seen that picture before… Reply There is no Israeli Supermodel in the picture. Reply Writers and directors are dumbshits. Reply 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 Same thing as this, from “Jax bin Anarchy” http://whatthecrap.wordpress.com/files/2007/08/captsgekwe52140807225824photo04photodefault-512×369.jpg Reply 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 Being a liberal apparatchik means never having to say you’re sorry…. Reply 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 HOW!?!?!?!?! Reply Apparently the animator didn’t understand how ammunition works. Reply 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 Propmasters cost extra money, you know. Reply 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 Agreed, that was one of the most badass moments of the show. Reply 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 True! Whoever is writing for Rayland is fantastic. Just a great show in general. Reply 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. 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. 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 Although that cartridge was later used to attempt to frame Rayland Reply 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 Justified is awesome!! And Raylan has lots of great lines. Reply I loved the “the next one will come a lot faster” line .. I might need to remember that one…. LOL.. Robert Seddon Reply 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 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 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 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 As Hickock45 pointed out, many of the lever action rifle’s in 1870-80s movie settings, was actually in 1892 model Winchester Not to mention movies set in the late 1860s–where the pistols also tend to be about 10 years in the future. Exactly. That was my thought, but didn’t want to structure an entire paragraph laying on my back near Yellowstone. Laziness strikes. Reply Also the revolver cocking sound whenever someone pulls out a glock lol Reply 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 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 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 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 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 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 Or somehow stuck in the arm when they should have passed straight through… Reply 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 Yeah, well, something better than 0% accuracy shouldn’t be too much to ask. Reply http://m.memegen.com/vc81qm.jpg Reply If its already been mentioned, sorry, but twice in the season premiere Juice cocked a Glock.,,sigh Reply SoA apparently know f*ck-all about guns: http://instagram.com/p/swWbnFEO7a?utm_source=partner&utm_medium=embed&utm_campaign=video Reply Maybe that’s the sound of the “safe action” trigger dingus being pushed back into the trigger? Reply 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 I smuggle loaded ammo in my body cavity all the time, get with the times fellas. Reply 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 Casing still there……….bullet never fired. Reply 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 No, not better computers Reply 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 Yep. I posted about it on SOA’s Facebook page immediately after that episode aired. Obviously, never got a response. Reply Didn’t anyone notice this last season when it was first shown…? Reply 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 During the first episode of the new season, I observed an audible pistol hammer being cocked while the character “Jax” held a glock, LoL!
