    Did anyone else notice that one of the BHPs (or 1911s, I couldn't tell) used in the movie had an external extractor? How hard is it to get period-accurate firearms for a high budget movie? And another interesting fact: Not a single shot was fired by a "good guy" in the entire movie. :?

    Though I think you implied it, I'm guessing that those making the movies aren't so much concerned about the histrical and mechanical correctness of the guns, but moreso their "guns! scary! evil!" effect.

    You're suprised about this when they CGI'd out all of the guns from E.T. and replaced them with walkie talkies? I saw it on TV the other day -- was funny as hell to see a guy 'clearing' the back of a van with a walkie talkie.

    I enjoyed the movie.

    I did so because I not only ignored the minor gun problems, but the major scientific problems as well. Of course I have to do that with most movies...I just tell myself....Its a movie...not an art form or anything else.

    I turn off the analytical part of my brain and just enjoy.

    Well, Indy did used his gun to save their lives without even having to fire a shot. That was one of the more realistic parts of the movie.

    I still can't get over the fact that they could expect use to believe that the commies could put that much lead in the air withoutsomeoneeven beinghit by a piece of shrapnel. . . but it is just a movie.

    So you did enjoy it? Even with the gun and scientific problems aside, I still thought it was a flop. :?

    Yea I enjoyed it.....But you have to realize that My wife and Kids believe that I Think I am Indiana Jones.......I don't

    Indiana Jones, is a fictitious anthropologist, who wears a brown fedora, and a brown leather jacket, carries a whip and a gun and wonders around in the jungles, ignoring sound anthropological scientific practices and looks for treasure in the ground.

    I, on the other hand am a real life geologist, who wears a brown fedora, and a brown leather jacket, carries a whip and a gun and wonders around in the jungles, observing sound geological scientific practices and looks for treasure in the ground.

    We have nothing in common.

    Below is a picture of me doing field work in Kentucky. You can plainly see that we are nothing alike.

    Indiana Jones is certainly not nearly as blurry as you are :P

    you're lucky this is an OC forum, or I'd fire up photoshop and make you cry with laughter.
