Is that the same type of ammo that ricochets of fiberglass Corvette bodies with a bright spark?

I like cowboy movies made pre WWII. The blanks being shot was loaded with black powder and all shots made plenty of smoke. I noticed westerns made during WWII still used black powder blanks but not all shooters were actually shooting blanks but were dry firing to conserve blanks. Post WWII smokeless powder blanks came into use in westerns. Westerns were just not the same.

Hollywood is wrong about weapons 95% of the time. At the end of Rambo 2 (starting at 2:18 in video), Sylvester Stallone fires a LAW rock AT rocket through a hole in the front window of a his running UH-1 and destroys a Russian Hind Helicopter. Then Rambo checks his back blast area and everyone riding in the back of the UH-1 us just fine. Note: There is a instant (2:35) where it shows him pulling the trigger of an Russian RPG, before a view of the LAW.


At least Dirty Harry The Enforcer got it right ... sort of ... his co-star is still way too close when view from the rear.

Or an automatic tranny car gets run up the gears.

Or, the car accelerates leisurely, with sounds of an engine running up to redline in 4 gears, and still only going about 25 MPH.

In the Hang 'Em High movies, the the same sound effect for a ricochet is used repeatedly.
Extremely irritating.
