"He must have converted it to a full-auto with a mail order upper receiver barrel parts kit."

This was a statement made about a "Colt Commando M-4"


Then one cop tells a female cop that in real life shooting situations "don't aim, just point and pull."


My favorite was the gun store owner who wouldn't let them see his paperwork for some weapons he sold. They made him out to be a freakin inbreed retard.



Nice to know how ignorant the writers for this new show are. Guess I won't be watching it again. Too bad too because if it wasn't for all of the anti-propoganda it might have actually been a pretty cool show.

It's from Hollywood and based out of L.A. What did you expect.

Don't forget the "teflon-coated cop-killer bullets".

Not to mention the show is set in L.A., and apparently you can just walk into a gun store there and buy a Colt Commando M16A2, which is how the ATF agent identifies the rifle to the LAPD officer who's searching the database.

I could have sworn that "assault rifles" were verboten in CA. Maybe I was wrong. Afterall, the producers are from L.A. and are doing a police show, they'd know the gun laws better than I.

oh well, still not as funny as the detective in law and order saying "that's pratically an assault rifle" when describing a desert eagle.

Well, if they showed you what fugitive investigations are really like, you'd be bored to tears fro the first 55 minutes, then things would get exciting the last five.

I got board with the show after 10 minutes. Other than the History Channel, T.V. just isn't good anymore.

One laugh after another:



  • The criminal had an LEO marked 6920, but the acid tested gun was an Olympic.


  • 6920s are banned in CA/LA.


  • Mail order upper reciever parts kit.


  • Teflon coated bullets.


  • Shotgun point at Supervisor's head while he is using pry bar on door.


  • Chick re-assembled her HK but forgot to put takedown lever back in.


  • "I am ATF, I can do anything I want.".

For what they spend on the frakken shows, you would think they could get a consultant to straighten their stuff out! If I knew who to email them I would just to tell them that several million former military and civillians know that their show is total crap. It would be so easy to get it right! My son laughed at me last night when I went on a rant about that "upper conversion". He asked if stuff like that ruined the show or movie for me and I said yes. So he says, "Dad, it's hollywood! Oh, the wisdom of youth. Really, I would like to bombard these schmucks with email to get their consultant or writer fired depending on what moron put that stuff in.

As I was watching this piece of craptastic stupidity last night, I just knew there would be at least one ARFCOM thread about it today.

You guys keep forgetting. Less than 50% of American homes have a firearm. Of that what do you really thing the percentage is that actually know anything about firearm? I bet it is less than 10%.

Except of course for Stargate. We all know that show is really a documentary masquerading as a work of fiction in order to fool the masses into thinking that it isn't real.



Damn, you sound like my 13 year old son!

The problem is that when the sheeple hear about this "mail order upper receiver barrel parts kit" which you can use to turn an "assault rifle" into a "full-auto assault rifle" they believe this shit. Not to mention the other crap.

Yup. Wait for the ban on "upper receivers" to be introduced in congress by DiFi.
