Hollywood just loves its guns, but it doesn't always get the facts straight. Robert Evans of Cracked.com busts 5 common gun myths:
- Bullets blow up cars and stuff (Jaws, Casino Royale, Matrix Reloaded): If it were that easy to make flammable things go boom, every car accident "would look like a Michael Bay movie."
- Enough with the cocking (Boondock Saints, Die Hard, Reservoir Dogs): Sounds cool and suspenseful on the big screen, but it doesn't apply to many modern weapons.
- Silencers make guns silent (Die Hard 2, No Country for Old Men, and nearly every James Bond movie): They don't work as well in real life. For the most part, they make a loud gun sound like a slightly less loud gun.
