Just finished Season 2, please tell me that the prop master has changed the direction the magazines are carried in the pouch to the right direction in later seasons. (Bullets pointed to the actor's left arm.) A small detail but it drives me nuts. See in the video how the low end of the magazine base is forward, allowing the index finger to index on the front of the magazine helping to insure proper orientation of the magazine when it is inserted. The way the magazines are carried on the TV show would in real life require the shooter to rotate his forearm so that the back of the hand is against  the back to grab the magazine correctly. Not a smooth natural move.



Don't get me started on the actor's two hand grip....

I noticed that too! The mags were turned around the right way in a later scene.

Several years ago in a news interview the Chief of Police of a MAJOR west coast city gave a news conference. She had her's turned the wrong way... no one commented on her
presentation, just the incorrect positioning. OF course, Harry is left handed  Wink Wink...

He writes left handed, but he shoots right handed, so that wouldn't make any difference in the position of the magazines. To do a smooth reload, you still need the bullet side forward or you have to twist your arm around in an awkward fashion.

Hey,

All nit-picking about magazines aside, I'm glad to see the new season is out.

Roger that! And now we must wait until 2021 for the final installment.

Of note, and I won't do the 'details' (not spoiling it) but early on in this season there is a
confrontation that does result in the use of firearms. It was done tactically very sound
and I think Connelly still has GOOD technical advisors. That is a big difference in the popularity
of the show. Good job all around.

While it is off subject matter... wish we could tie up the loose ends (I know, in the real world they
never are) with Veronica Allen. Hahah...
