** And they once went paintballing with actual guns . . . inside the house. Despite mysteriously impermanent excessive property damage, I think only one person was shot.

When bullets fail to penetrate through things that really shouldn't stop them -- such as drywall, car doors, and in many cases, [[BulletproofHumanShield people]], that's ConcealmentEqualsCover. DisappearingBullets will only damage people, not surroundings. In some cases, EveryBulletIsATracer.

* In the movie ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit?'' this is parodied by Eddie Valiant pulling out a [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure cartoon gun, with cartoon "bullets" that are alive, that he's able to talk to]]. After he shoots them, they go a distance then stop, trying to figure out which way to go. They make a [[{{Roboteching}} 90 degree turn]], ''the wrong way''. Valiant remarks, "Dum dums."

A bullet is the business end of a ''cartridge'', whose other components include a metal case, either brass or steel, filled with gunpowder, and a primer. When the gun fires, the bullet exits this happy arrangement, leaving the brass case behind, which now must be ejected to make room for another cartridge, either automatically in gas or recoil-operated firearms or manually in bolt-action or pump-action weapons. Most American movies get this part right, and in mystery stories brass cases may furnish important clues for the detective if the killer leaves them behind. But some films show [[CartridgesInFlight the entire cartridge, brass case and all, flying through the air]] toward the target! This gaffe is understandably more common in films from countries where private gun ownership is rare, e.g. China and India.
