Goofs

When MacGyver finds the holster under the table, it is fastened by screws. But when he goes back with Pete and finds no holster, there are also no screw holes. Since there wasn't time to switch tables, or even turn that one, there should have been holes in the bottom of the table where the screws had been, leaving evidence of the holster's existence.
