When Smith is busy shooting the bad guys in the warehouse, the last two shots he attempts to fire are met with the sound of dry-firing - a hammer falling on an empty breech. It is then shown to the audience that the slide is locked back, which occurs when the weapon runs out of bullets. In this condition the hammer cannot move, and the gun would not make any sound whatsoever if the trigger was pulled.
When Smith and Hertz point firearms at each other, Smith tells Hertz his Desert Eagle pistol is a six shooter. However, a .357 mag DE holds 9 rounds, the .44 mag holds 8 rounds and the .50 AE hold seven rounds. This would not include an additional round that could be chambered in addition to a fully loaded magazine.
In the car scene where Smith shoots out the windshield of his car and the van full of assassins the glass breaks into a few large pieces which easily fall out of his way. Car (and van) windshields are made out of two pieces of glass with a sheet of polymer or laminate between. This means that when broken (even if shot) the windshield will break into many small pieces, but these pieces will be held in position by the laminate. The glass used in the two vehicles for this scene are obviously not 'real' windshields. Furthermore, in a head-on collision of two vehicles traveling at the depicted speed, Smith should have been propelled all the way through the van's cabin, probably hitting his head against the back door.
