Continuity 

At the beginning of the scene at the Shorns' house, the LP record Jodell is looking at while talking to her mother changes from David Rose's 'The Stripper' into 'Music to Strip By' and then back again. These were both actual stripper-themed LPs released in the 1960s (perhaps suggesting Mrs. Shorn's previous occupation?)

At the beginning of the movie, Billy Jack is carrying an MI Garand semi-auto rifle, which he puts in the flat bed of his Jeep pickup truck. A short while later, when he is confronting the bikers in town, he takes the rifle out of the Jeep and it is now a US Springfield bolt action rifle and remains so for the rest of the movie.

When Vicki is getting out of the ocean and her jacket blows off her bike, it lands a few feet from the dead seal. In the very next shot, it's just inches from the seal.

The brake lever on the right handle bar of Vicki's Yamaha sticks up at an angle at the beginning of the movie, and 30 minutes into the movie, it disappears. Later, it reappears and disappears again several times.

Factual errors 

Billy Jack shoots Danny in the head with an M1 Garand from a distance of no more than 10 feet. Even assuming that the rifle was loaded with full metal jacket military-style rounds instead of game loads, the damage to the rear of Danny skull would have be immense and far bloodier than the scene reveals.

The .30 '06 is one of the most potent rounds invented and it will cause a great deal of damage when it strikes flesh or bone. The shot at that range should exited the rear of the skull, destroying much of the back of his head.

When Vicki tries to escape after the biker shuts off the fuel valve, her motorcycle slows to a halt after the carburetors run empty. The sound of the motor slowing down to a stop is that of a 4 cycle engine. This bike had a 2 cycle motor, as did all Yamaha bikes in the '60s.
