Things I hate in the movies #1...the eternal mag....

You know, a good does of firearm play can make almost any film watchable.  Still, those brain doners in Hollyweird often feed off of each others misconceptions to make common mistakes that make us gunnies go nuts when watching them.  Case in point...

#1 The eternal magazine

If we could make Hollywierd logic come true in real life, no soldier or marine would need to go into combat with more than 2 or 3 magazines for their M4 as apparently what I thought were 30 round magazines hold somewhere between 100 and 300 rounds a piece.  Belt fed machine guns actually do not have a round limitation until the action in the movie need it to go down to make the hero seem like he's in trouble.  If funny how some of the same liberal voices that tell us "assault rifles" spew "thousands of bullets a minute" can't figure out that a 30 round mag in an M4 firing burst would empty in about 5 to 7 seconds out of it requiring shooters to flip mags in and out like a juggling act as much as actors seem to use "rock-n-roll" in the movies.

The ultimate example....Arnold in "Commando"  (if you haven't watched this movie, please do so for future reference...it will be mentioned often in this series)

Until next time folks...keep your eyes on the screen!
