When Col Caldwell is shooting the guy with the shotgun in the water warehouse, he shoots several times and then a "click" is heard indicating he is out of bullets. When the Colt Model M1911A1 .45 pistol fires the last round in the magazine, the slide locks back (open), so there is no empty click - the .45 Caldwell is holding does not have the slide locked back, so he hadn't fired the last round in the pistol.
