    Tonight they had a "sniper" firing through a hole in a wall with a scoped rifle. Only problem was that the hole was that made by the removal of a single, horizontally laid brick. This opening allowed the investigator just enough room to fit a scope through the hole. So the "sniper" could have either looked through the hole or fired through the hole; but, he could not have done both at the same time. Those pesky little details!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, there was barely enough room for the scope; surely not a scope mounted on a rifle.

    One of the cable channels documented the Army, Guard, Marines, Brits, Canadians, et al. competing in a several day sniper contest. On one of the stations they had to fire their weapon on its side.

    I thought that was odd on NCIS, and I don't know if they were thinking along those lines. Usually when they use some outlandish technique like that, they have to use it to show how the brilliant investigator figured it out. It was probably Bravo Sierra on their part, but it is trained for.

    Well-it is TV. Normally David P. Bellisario shows are more accurate. That was a glaring mistake-obvious right away. And the referance to Carlos "Whitefeather" Hathcock was a bit of a stretch I thought. Nevertheless I find that show and JAG to be somewhat entertaining. Ever notice that Bellisario shows are almost totally devoid of blondes? I believe the Mjr. Mackenzie character was on the show previosly as a different character, then came back as "Mac" with dark brown hair. Any longterm JAG watchers confirm this? Oh by the way (just to keep on topic for the mods)in a previous episode she couldn't sleep so she asked Harm if she could strip and clean his 1911 for something to do. What a woman!

    Hey Bwana - I saw the same thing, and had the same reaction you did. OOPS!
    And I thought I heard them say Hathcock had "39" confirmed kills . . . I thought it was up around 97 confirmed or so?

    Yeah, I made a point to catch this one cause it looked like it had a lot of potential to have some gun screwups. :) I gotta give them kudos for working Carlos in there though!

    Did anyone recognize the rifle? Looked like a Barrett to me.

    "Mac"

    She's been her sweet ol' self the whole show. 'Bout due for a promotion, though. Raab went from j.g. to lt. cdr. and caught up with her, and the poor gal's been a Major all this time.;) I missed that episode, did she strip, then clean Harm's .45?:what: :D Or was that strip the .45, then clean it;) , Either way, you're right , gotta love a gal like that!:D

    How about NCIS Pensacola?:uhoh: Two shows fer one!:p

    Hey, Bellasario does his homework, most producers would have had it as Carlos "Whitecock" Halffeather!:neener:

    I have watched exactly 1/4 of 1 epidsode of JAG.

    I turned it off when the two main characters (hell, I don't even know their names!) showed up on a carrier to do an investigation. The Marine orderly escorted them to their "stateroom" which was the size of a basketball court and had portholes!

    Damn! I wonder what the skipper's in-port cabin looks like!

    I always liked those WWII submarine movies that made the inside of a sub look like a ballroom.

    Pardon me for having Mac's rank and previous role confused-sometimes certain things cause me to have temporary ADD. In that episode Harm was sleeping in his skivvies while Mac sat at the window wrapped in a blanket. And yes she took his 1911 apart and cleaned it. They also discussed the fact they have slept together but not "really slept together", so to speak. Hey mods-like the way we got this on topic by talking about the now clean 1911? By the way-I have a friend who swears that Mac had another role earlier in the series and she was blonde then. I can see this is a topic for further research. Wonder what kind of a Marine recruiter she would make? I digress.

    Acctally Cathrine Bell was killed off in the first season of Jag. She was then brought back as Mac.

    And I only caught the last few minutes of NCIS so I missed the one block removed for the sniper rifle. I also missed the Carlos Hathcock refrence damn I am ashamed of my self.

    From http://www.tvtome.com/JAG/season1.html

    Season 1 NBC

    22. Skeleton Crew
    gs: John Ashton (Agent Brian Turque)
    Andrea Thompson (Cmdr. Allison Krennick)
    Ben Lemon (Commander Holbarth)
    Mark Kiely (Lieutenant Lamm)
    Brook Susan Parker (Lt. Sarah Williams)
    Glenn Morshower (CPO Ned Bannon)
    John M. Jackson (Rear Adm. Chegwidden)
    Patrick Labyorteaux (Ensign Bud Roberts)

    A murdered female lieutenant turns out to be Lt. Schonke, a
    friend (with whom he attended Academy together) of Harm's but
    neither Cdr. Krennick nor Agent Turque, an abrasive civilian
    investigator, buys Harm's claim that his relationship was strictly
    platonic. After the primary suspect of the murder is also found
    dead - a more than dubious suicide - Harm finds himself being the
    number one suspect for both murders ... Locations: US Naval
    Base Norfolk, Va.; Washington D.C.

    b: UNAIRED
    pc: 022
    w: Donald P. Bellisario
    d: Donald P. Bellisario

    NOTE: This episode was not shown in the US during JAG's initial
    run, due to the series being cancelled by NBC before it was
    originally scheduled to be aired; the second part was never filmed
    or even written.
    Catherine Bell had a very brief role as Harm's murdered girlfriend.
    In fact, her entire role lasted approximately 1 minute during the episode's teaser.
    (The part of the show that occurs before the opening credits roll)

    Producer Donald Bellisario was so impressed with her performance,
    that when NBC cancelled the show at the end of Season 1, then CBS
    picked up the show (from Season Two on), he tapped Bell to play
    opposite Harm as Major Sarah McKenzie.

    The episode has only aired in the U.S. as part of USA Networks
    re-runs of JAG once or twice. The episode though, has been
    aired overseas many times.

    During the 3rd season of "JAG" on CBS, Executive Producer
    Donald P. Bellisario used a large part of this episode to create
    the episode, "Death Watch", scenes from this episode being used to
    help tell that story in flashbacks.


    Drive on,

    Did anyone catch where the decided that the shooter was far away rather than close up due to the vast penetration of the bullet?? Like it went through more walls due to the fact the shooter was further away...maybe I missed something there..

    Dang! I missed that one. I like NCIS for the humor, lots of subtle stuff.

    I caught that one real quick,but missed the 'brick' faux pa(sp). The alluded that a rifle fired at great distance would impart more fps to the bullet.Yea,it is tv,but the amusing part of it is finding the gun foofoos

    Ah, yes! Cute girls, cool guns.

    Either one alone will warp one's thinking. Both at once, in the same stupid TV show? Well, all I have to say is; I betcha the advertisers made out like bandits on that episode.

    I'm pretty sure Harm's gun in JAG is a Beretta, and yeah, she stripped it. I think that she's moved up to Colonel and he's moved up to Commander. They don't clearly say anymore whether or not they are Lt. Commander or Lt. Colonel though, so I'm not sure exactly what rank they both are. But as far as the gun, it's most likely the same Beretta that the M9 is.

    She wears a silver leaf making her a Lt. Colonel and he has three thick strips making him a full Commander.

    NCIS Does it Again!

    Anybody see Feb 18th's episode - where the ME goes off on hollow point bullets (Dum Dums) saying how much more deadly they are than regular bullets, and how they are illiegal to use in warfare, etc.

    True, the Brits developed the Mark II .303 round to increase its stopping power - the original just zipped right through the body and it was originally developed at the Dum Dum Arsenal in India.

    The gist was definitely written by an anti-gun person - and of course the dialogue was repeated at least twice.

    :uhoh:

    The round ducky was unhappy about was a Ranger SXT. Like many uninformed, he thought the mushrooming was to create more damage rather than reduce overpenetration. :rolleyes:
