After they handcuff Spider to the vault door, Rooster puts his gun in his face, and you hear the gun cock. He's holding a Glock, which has an internal hammer, and can only be cocked by pulling back the slide.

Factual errors 

When Karen is scared by Turk ringing her buzzer, she pulls her firearm out of her purse, cocks the hammer with her thumb, and aims it at the door. Karen carries a Glock 19 pistol (9mm). Glock pistols do not have exposed hammers, and cannot be thumb-cocked.

During the opening credits, Turk and Rooster fire H&K MP5 submachine guns, but then we see 5.56 rifle casings falling. The MP5 usually fires 9mm pistol rounds. They're rarely used by police, 10mm and .40SW variants exist.

Continuity 

When Turk runs out of the lounge in Club 404, alarmed by Rooster shooting Spider, the gold plate on the plaque on the wall next to Turk's head is leaning forward, as it's been stuck into the bottom of the frame, on the outside of the glass. The camera cuts to Rooster holding a gun. When it cuts back to Turk, the plate is in glass of the plaque, a few inches above the bottom of the frame.
