Death Wish

Stupidity: After Paul is shot, he takes medical supplies from the hospital to his office. However, he doesn't think to take Lidocaine, or some other local anesthetic, knowing that the procedure will hurt.


Factual error: When Kersey finds his throw down gun and proceeds to practice with it, a bullet ricochets back at him. Lead will reflect off objects and continue in the same general direction or flatten out on a surface but will not bounce back at you. If it did, indoor shooting ranges would kill all of their patrons on a daily basis.
