Quick search shows that as a quote from a move called "Kuffs." With Christian Slater. Matthew Slater shows to be a football player.

wogpotter and archie,

The reason the line appears goofy in the movie, Dr. No, is because the prop guys apparently hadn't read the book or the script.

It was supposed to have been a Smith & Wesson Model .52, .38 Special wadcutter target pistol.

2. How about guns being fired inside of enclosed vehicles without the slightest flinching or concern about hearing damage?
And then on the other side of the coin we have the scene in Snatch where the pawnbroker fires a blank inside a car and blows all the windows out.

Tuco

Never had a bad line. Tuco, everything he said in " The good, bad and the ugly" was cool!

He's tall, blond and stinks like a pig!, or something to that affect.

This one is non-specific. I've seen it in a lot of shows/movies.

Paraphrased -

"She was killed with a slug from a 38 special. Same caliber as the gun registered to you. That pretty much narrows it down to you being the killer."

The other night I caught part of Rooster Cogburn, somewhere close to the middle. Rooster has a young indian companion who he hands a gun to and says "This is a pepperbox 22...."
I don't know if any pepperboxes were ever made in .22 caliber, but you could plainly see the barrel sizes were somewhere around a .38 caliber.

I've never seen any errors or heard goofy lines in any movies. They've all been spot on. I think you guys are in a daze and need medical attention.

NCIS usually has some whoppers. Like the one where Abbey, the forensics specialist says the MI-6 Guy used a "30mm Tokarev pistol".

"A Few Good Men" Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, Jack Nicholson...

The USMC Colonel Markinson, guarded by the Fed Marshalls, dresses up in his dress blues and shoots himself with a nickel plated Baretta M9. Tom Cruise character later says [blew his head off] "with a forty-five"

Sgt. Lumpy,

the good Marine's 1911 was disguised as a Beretta so he wasn't forced to hand it in when the change-over was made from .45 to 9mm. It was so obvious!

Or the people in Westerns shooting their revolvers in a forward, throwing motion, as if doing that will somehow make the bullet come out harder?
That part is real. When black powder was used in revolvers you lift the pistol to get to powder leveled so you could get better combustion from the primer into the powder.

What always amazed me was how good the always were in shooting and never having to reload.

Um,, I have shot black powder for 35 years, (you NEVER EVER have an airspace in a black powder cartridge.

You either firmly seat the bullet against the powder, or compress it with the bullet.

If the load is a light one, you use a filler over the powder, for the bullet to seat against.

Tilting up (or rotating sideways) with cap & ball revolvers has nothing to do with powder. Its mostly done to let percussion cap fragments fall free of the mechanism.

Can't remember what movie or TV show it was from...

"The slug was a seven point six two nato. The killer must be a military or ex military sniper"

OK, I have a fairly recent one, from the Sheriff Longmire series on the A&E cable channel.

The bullet that killed the victim was a .45 rifle bullet, so it had to have been a .45-70 and that had to have been fired from a Sharps, which had to mean an antique from the 1800's.

Wrong on so many points. And, to be fair to the TV people, all that hooey came from the book that started the series. Except for weakness in the area of guns, the books are great!

Bart Noir
Who likes the series even if they make many silly gun mistakes. And who won't even mention the 700 yard off-hand shot taken with the Sharps, which hit the targeted person.

Another NCIS one.
Ari Haswari shoots at Gibbs & Kate with a 7.62 NATO round from "must be close to a thousand yards". The view through his scope was head & shoulders of one person with no mirage at all.

I want that scope!

Not a "line" but goofy -

Final episode of Hawaii Five-O (the original 70s), McGarret fires 19 rounds out of a 1911 into the laboratory of Evil Dr Wo Fat.

Some I saw last night on Netflix "The GLades".

"Your ex husband is a Navy recruiter. So he probably carries a Navy issue service revolver. It wouldn't be a 9mm would it?"

**

Coroner looking at a dead, bloody body pulled from a swamp "I'd guess the cause of death was that gunshot wound to the neck. Looks like a 9mm, maybe a 38"

**

Same coroner pulls fired bullets from the corpse on the autopsy table -
CORONER:
"Here it is. Forty five hollow point"

NURSE:
""Oh, cop killer bullets""

Not so much a line as a sound,like a hammer being thumbed back,or a safety released.Watched Gross Point Blank for the hundredth time,and John Cusack must have had special Glocks.

Well, it's not a line, but a sound effect.

Anytime someone whips out their Glock and draws on someone you plainly hear "Clickety, click, click, CLICK!" as if ever single gun in the world sounds like a SAA being cocked everytime it is pointed at someone.

I think that was from the new Hawaii Five-Oh, the one with the double amputee ex-bank robber that was picking off the cops that sent him to prison years ago.
