Smith & Wesson 5904
I think the gun is jammed. Look at how the slide is partially set back. You can see the barrel and the guide rod. -Gunman69 22:05, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
-I think they're firing and the screen shot was taken at the time the slide was moving back. -Is that even possible? No Flash or Shell Ejecting?
- Of course, it's precisely the way the gun should operate. The projectile would be fired first, causing the muzzle flash, and then the slide goes back to eject the shell casing. The shell casing may not be visible due to the low quality of the image. -MT2008 15:43, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Will Smith's Gun Knowledge
I think anyone in the world knows you fire a gun by pulling the trigger.
But, What about when Robert Dean checks the magazine on his Glock?
Will Smith probably knows alot about guns, but his character is just a lawyer.
Do you think Robert Dean figured out how to release the magazine?
- Maybe he's been to a shooting range before. This is America. It's not impossible (or even unlikely) that he's had the chance to try guns out even if he doesn't own any. -MT2008
Its also a good telling point that he actually checks the round count of the magazine and not just checking the top of the magazine. Its a small point but a good one. 126.96.36.199 00:07, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Maybe it's because of his line of work (labour law), which would run the risk of being attacked by characters like Pintero.
It's hardly rocket science to figure out how a gun works. They're not complicated pieces of equipment to use. A few minutes of fiddling around could have figured out what everything does with it. --cool-breeze 08:43, 12 September 2011 (CDT)
- But it takes actual skill and know-how to use a weapon properly. :) - Mr. Wolf 21:03, 12 September 2011 (CDT)
True, but then again he doesn't really use it much. I think he fires the pistol once and it's in the tunnel when he's running away from the NSA. I don't think he was looking when he fired it either. --cool-breeze 11:45, 13 September 2011 (CDT)
Police officer with shotgun
Just noticed this, an officer can be seen with a pump-action shotgun with wooden furniture outside the restaurant, out of focus in the foreground as Brill walks away from the van. Alex T Snow (talk) 03:07, 15 May 2022 (EDT)
