Goofs

In episode 4 of this season (Hamsterdam) Bunk talks to a group of kids that Carv and Herc round up about Doserman's missing gun. He says "Glock 9" referring to a 9mm Glock. When he gets the gun back in this episode from Omar via Butchie, Butchie says, "Glock .40 I believe." The gun somehow changes from a Glock 17 or 19 into a Glock 22 or 23. The Baltimore Police Department switched from 9mm to .40 caliber in 2000. Most likely a technical advisor noted the mistaken earlier references to the lost police weapon as a "nine" and they referred to it as a "40" subsequently without explaining the change. See more »
