AK-57 on West Wing
Actualy, with the Hop-ups system on airsoft guns(it helps make the BB go farther by sopining it a little...I think, not sure exactly how it works) you CAN bend the BB's flight path a little.
Also an the TV show Hogan's Heros Sgt Shultz is seen twice with a M1921 Thomson SMG, with foregrip and stick mag. The second time (i can't remember the episode name, sorry) it swiches places with an MP40 that he is holding, a huge contonuity error
I am a big anime fan and its amazing to me how much more they seem to care about the detail they put in. I was blown away by Gunslinger Girl's attention to detail starting with episode one where Cluadia is shooting an Aug and you can see the dented primers on the spent brass falling to the floor.
How about in Max Payne where he blows the doors of the bathroom stalls off the hinges with a Taurus Judge.
Yes, those can curve a trajectory quite well. It functions on backspin, much like how one spins a basketball backwards when shooting, since it reduces side yaw. The hop-up on airsoft wasn't to curve the trajectory though. It was placed to increase accuracy and range.
It's still nowhere near what's in that movie though. Airsoft hop-up is about an inch every 15 or so feet until it starts falling off. An airsoft gun held sideways will have squat for range.
It's pretty much impossible to enjoy any movie or television show without the suspension of disbelief. For those who haven't noticed, none of these things actually react the same way in all movies/TV shows as they do real life:
Mall Security Guards
Ugly people who become super sexy after removing their glasses and brushing their hair
Long lost royal ancestry
If you hate the way guns are portrayed in movies so much, take a newbie to the range instead. Guns act just the way they should, at least most of the time, and you can come post about how you took a new shooter to the range and they loved it.
