There is a saying in the music industry that once you learn how a record is made, you’ll never listen to a CD, record or song on the radio the same way. In the firearm industry, once you become an NRA Firearm Instructor, you’ll never watch an action movie the same way either. We have several people in our customer base that travel around the world, Europe, Asia, North American ect, as a consultant on how the military or Law Enforcement should have their duty gear on, what color lights the Polie use in different Countries and yes, even the sounds of the sirens. If an action movie involved a Die Hard movie where the LAPD had Police sirens that sound like they were in Paris France, somebody will call it. There are some pretty funny mistakes in some of these movies that you know the Directors didn’t know until it got out, check out “movie mistakes” and pick your Action Titles.
I’ve seen Police Chiefs on National stages make inaccurate statements about the firearm in their hands, like calling for a National ban on assault rifles like this AK47, meanwhile, they are holding an AR15. In this industry you have to talk about what you know, and if you are wrong in your statements about tactical gear, especially on Blogs, Facebook or in a gun magazine, you’ll hear it. Things have to seem real in a good action movie. Ever see the 9mm gun brass on the ground during and after the Darth Vader entrance into Princess Leia’s ship? What about all of the wrong caliber brass falling from Neo’s gun? Now go find all the action movies where the SWAT Team all have their fingers on the trigger while they move in a stack.
