Eh... two against one is always bad, and he still damn near killed them both.

When someone suffers no hearing loss after firing a gun (or guns).  This even made it into Ebert's Movie Glossary book:
Movie heroes squeeze off hundreds of rounds of ammo but suffer no hearing loss. For example, RAMBO II, where Rambo enters a metal warehouse and runs an entire belt of ammo through his M-60 machine gun. Afterwards he carries on a whispered conversation with the evil CIA man in another room.

In fact, in most movies where guns are fired, especially by a character who is supposed to have no gun experience, there always seems to be very little recoil at all.  Unless it's crucial to the plot or scene. Lookingup

Honestly the thing that bothers me the most are timeline errors that most people don't notice or care about. This is the curse of being nostalgic and having too good a long term memory. For example the show "Glory Daze" set in 1986 has songs from later in decade and don't even get me started on the ill-informed Motley Crue references in "Hot Tub Time Machine." Do the homework guys!

I see more anachronisms, things that didn't exist at the time but are shown in the movie.  I think it happens mostly because people won't notice usually.  Also, I think budgetary concerns easier to use something that is available then be historically accurate.  Among these firearms are big ones but there are always little things like food stuffs or packages and such that were not at the time. 

Ah, the good old days.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
