5 “Hollywood” facts about pistols that have nothing to do with reality

In the movie, everything is always different from life. Sometimes “everything is not so” even more than it seems at first glance. A vivid example of how filmmakers embellish and simplify reality is a weapon. Especially – pistol shooting. There are at least five well-established myths that continue to mislead people.

1. Kill with a pistol easily

Of course, getting into the head or even into the chest will lead to a person’s speedy death. However, in reality, the pistols have a rather weak “stopping” potential. Pistol bullets are weak. Especially when it comes to shooting at a protected, inadequate or under the influence of alcohol (narcotic) intoxication. Shooting at vulnerable points in real combat is almost impossible.

Here is a video of how the Bali police tried to stop an MMA fighter by firing pistols and rifles. Weak-hearted and people with a sick heart are advised to refrain from viewing.

2. Ammunition in abundance

The most voluminous pistol magazine currently holds 33 cartridges. With an average rate of firing a pistol – this is enough for about 30 seconds. When shooting in real conditions, the cartridges literally “fly away”. All ammunition can be easily spent on a single target.

3. Shoot the moving easily

In films, cool guys always easily fall out of a pistol at a moving target. In fact, to get into a running man from a pistol, you have to be almost a sniper. This is possible, but extremely difficult for the average shooter. And now it’s not at all about the fans of the regional shooting gallery, but about trained policemen and special forces soldiers.

For a better understanding, it is worth adding that when shooting at a moving target with automatic weapons, use short lines and the “flooring” method. The logic is that at least one bullet will hit. Now introduce the majority of pistols.

4. Knee Shooting
Another popular Hollywood “technique” is shooting at the limbs. In the real world, he also has the problem of shooting at a moving target. In a real combat situation, when a person is gripped by stress and tension, and the goal is constantly moving, it is very difficult to get in the leg or arm on purpose.

5. My shelter is my castle

A flask, a lighter, a table, a car door and (God forgive me) the Bible cannot even stop a pistol bullet. All this is nothing more than the fiction of filmmakers. Car trim flashing bullet on the flight. A wooden table will only slightly reduce the energy of a bullet, but it will still be enough to kill a person. There is no point in talking about other things.

Why are the cops in the movie hiding in a shootout outside the door of his car? Because, in any case, in the USA they have protective armor plates.
