How would we know that IMFDb played a part in it, though? Do we have people actually saying they looked up the database in order to ensure accurate representations of firearms in media they're producing?

I would like to think that movie and TV show directors in media with firearms are moving away from silliness like the infamous never-ending ammo belt you can see on Arnold Schwarzenegger's arm in Commando. Even so, how much of the general American movie-going and TV-watching public actually knows enough of this stuff to complain? Or are they still mostly people who think of certain parts on guns as "the shoulder thing that goes up"?
