Maybe, in order to be more professional, we can stop pointing this out every damn time it happens? I'm all for awarding good gun handling, like when actors have good trigger discipline or don't flinch(Robert Patrick as T-1000 in T2, or Michael Caine as Ex-Royal Marine in Harry Brown).

I just can't help but feel like we're being childish by looking down our noses at actors for not being firearms experts. I get embarrassed whenever I read a page with lots of that thrown in.

So what do you say, accentuate the positive from now on?

That's been a RULE for a while. If anyone reads the Rules they'll see it. Where have you been seeing it? I've noticed that IMFDB members have been pretty good about it for a while, and I'm particularly proud of some of the new members who correct bad posts, or admonish other new/anonymous members based on the rules (which means they read and follow the rules! which is hella cool! )
