McCauley is proficient enough in the combat use of firearms to do brass checks (e.g. when he prepares to shoot Waingro). Yet when Hanna stops him and asks him if he'd join him for a cup of coffee, he hides a cocked SIG P 22x-series pistol between himself and his car seat. Only someone completely unfamiliar with this sidearm would do this, as it is very unsafe (the gun's only external safety is a decocking lever and cocked, it has a very light and short trigger pull).
The shootout begins near the plaza at the intersection of Flower and 5th streets. After Bosko is shot Hanna gives chase and the getaway car is seen speeding, passing the spot where the shootout begun. Once McCauley starts shooting through a windshield window, the same spot is seen being passed again. The car is then seen passing the intersection, but once the tires get blown the car is at the intersection again with the plaza just few steps away.
Crew or equipment visible
When Lt. Hanna's step-daughter attempted suicide, she cut 2 arteries. the most important of which was her Femoral artery in her leg cut at an angle which would prevented the artery from closing off. Plus she was in water so the blood would not have had a chance to coagulate. She definitely would have bled out in 3 to 5 minutes tops.
When the news reporter is sharing the story about the robbery, it is stated that "A bank robbery that spilled into the streets took place in a small southland neighborhood." The shooting actually takes place in downtown Los Angeles. Mike tells the police to set up roadblocks at intersections of Flower as well as Figueroa. These are streets in downtown Los Angeles.
At the end of the movie, the scene has DeNiro behind a box, and Pacino in the open. The plane is coming from behind Pacino (actually in his face), lighting him up,which means his shadow would be toward DeNiro , however, the scene shows Pacino noticing a shadow as if the plane's lights were behind DeNiro , Pacino turns and fires hitting DeNiro . DeNiro would have seen Pacino in the plane's lights and should have had first shot opportunity.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
Chris Sherhalis would have known or suspected that his "out" (escape plan) was compromised especially after the shootout following the bank robbery. That he didn't try to call his wife in advance before coming over to pick her up or that he would have driven into what could have been a trap is improbable.
When Vincent in Air 18 contacts JJ in Air 40 wanting to know the whereabouts of Neil, JJ says Neil is "on the 105 heading east towards the 110 interchange." After Vincent gets into the car on the Vermont on-ramp, they pass-through signs above the freeway clearly indicate they are traveling west on Highway 105, not east.
