What things do you see all the time on TV or in Films?

US federal agents, members of the CIA or secret service are always depicted in lounge suits, no matter how situationally inappropriate. Whether in Bogata in summer or the northern US in winter. The suits never get dirty, they never tread in animal faeces or step shin deep into a puddle or slip on ice. The black SUV is also the only vehicle they ever drive.
The SUV is also always immaculately clean.

Or just maybe the film editor flipped those clips over to avoid "crossing the line" (where someone appears to change direction between shots), or even just because the director thought it looked better that way around ... magically reversing left and right.
In both shots the gun is shown from the same side in the same prepared position at the Zeeland end of the causeway.

In this picci you can just feel how sticky the floor is.
What was the name of that place in Amesbury, famous for it's sticky carpet?

If you see a tank it will not be very long before you see it roll over the camera dead centre.
 
Shotguns in fact fire WMDs and at any range will cut down half a dozen approaching enemies and remove limbs/heads in the process.

Good guys hit by shotguns take a small pellet, usually in the arse, and can limp on - with the exception of Murphy in Robocop.

If the hero has had but a half-hour AEF on a Cessna 152/an hour or so on MS Flight Simulator then s/he's good to go with landing that B747 with an incapacitated crew or starting up, lifting off and making an escape in that unattended Huey/Jet Ranger. If it's armed then s/he'll be able to make a couple of orbits to save all the innocents by machine-gunning and rocketing the living shit out of the baddies before heading off to safety and a textbook landing. Obviously, the 5" rockets are nuclear-tipped and/or armour-piercing and highly accurate.

In keeping with the above, all helicopter-nicking heroes know exactly where they are, exactly what bearing their base/precinct/nearest airport in a safe area lies down from that location and that it is in range of whatever fuel-load is on their purloined steed when they nick it. All without a map.

The Huns were apparently so scared shitless of them they threatened to execute any doughboy caught with one or the ammo for it, being the early pump shotties had no disconnector and could be slam fired as fast as you could work the action you could put a hearty amount of pellets into the same areas a Boche section was occupying

Further to that, any shotgun that is cut down can leave a hole in a wall/garage door/etc that a car can drive through after firing.
