One of the most infuriating thing as a gun owner is watching an action movie with some young, impressionable actor or actress, who simply botches any attempt to make their gunplay look safe, realistic, or effective.

Unfortunately, this sort of unrealistic and annoying nonsense seems to be the rule, as opposed to being the exception to the rule.  Even a show as heavily invested in gunplay as The Walking Dead has problems with this, particularly when it comes to one of the show’s main characters, Rick Grimes played by Andrew Lincoln.

There is even a whole blog dedicated to why Rick is such a horrible shot.

So what happens when a real life police officer has to pull some movie-style stunt in pursuit of an armed and dangerous perp?  Well, we got to find out in Las Vegas this week,

In bodycam footage so stunning it could be mistaken for a Hollywood action flick, a Las Vegas Metro police officer chasing two men in an SUV is seen speeding through Sin City’s downtown while simultaneously shooting out his car’s front windshield and trading shots from his side window during a deadly gun battle.

The two suspects allegedly fled after a July 11 traffic stop conducted by cops investigating the murder of a man near a car wash, FOX5 Vegas reported.

The suspects traded more than 60 shots with police during the harrowing pursuit. The officer behind the wheel, William Umana, can be heard on video yelling “shots fired” multiple times. The chase ended when the suspects crashed into the wall of an elementary school.

Of course, the brave officer did come out on top.

Rene Nunez, 30, got out of the vehicle and tried to run upstairs into the school, but the door was locked, Las Vegas Metro police Assistant Sheriff Tim Kelly said.

Fidel Miranda, 23, moved toward the passenger seat of the SUV and started to move it back toward the officer’s cruiser. Police fired on Miranda and he later died at the scene. Nunez, who was also wounded, was arrested and is facing several felony charges, including murder, police said.

And because you just have to see this to believe it…
