I was just watching The Bourne Identity and managed to catch something very interesting



Is that normal or is it just a movie goof? I mean they are in a US embassy, who needs sights when your up close and personal right?

Stupid movie mistake there.

When I see this, though, it always makes me wonder about the actor holding the weapon. Even if he didn't know much about weapons, wouldn't he wonder why it had no sights?

Weapon-wise, that whole scene was a cluster-fuck.

ETA - In all honesty, with a CQB situation, it would 'suffice' but the idea that you would intentionally leave BUIS off of a weapon for that purpose is stoopid.

Don't pay to much attention to the details of the weapons that they use in the movies, they use mostly either airsoft or replicas, they don't use real guns for safety.

The funny ones to me are optics mounted backwards.

if you take off BUIS, it adds 15-20 horsepower!

It makes the rifle lighter and also more aerodynamic for the high speed operators.

In the movie The Kingdom one of the Saudi cops goes through an entire gunfight without a rear sight.

maybe the guy is just that good and knows his weapon that well

fwiw, when i use to shoot a lot of shotgun - probably 2-3x/wk x a couple hundred rnds each time, i didn't need a sight after a rather short time - just knew where the gun would shoot. and not like i had a fancy clay thrower that would send them in the same general direction each time, just either have a friend throw them randomly w/ the handheld thrower or do it myself.

I give them credit for having the closest I have ever heard in a movie for the actual sound a suppressor makes though....
