Revealing mistake: Worst rubber 'dead dog' ever. Shot in mid air, it's stiff as a board as soon as it hits the ground.

Suggested correction: If you watch closely the dog moves its hind leg ever so slightly, so it had to be a real dog on the ground at some point.

Revealing mistake: When Llewellyn picks a cab to take in Del Rio, behind the cab that he takes is a cab with a rear license plate that reads J8R-725. Later in the story, at the crime scene, Llewellyn's wife drives up to the motel in El Paso in a cab with the same license plate number as the one in Del Rio. It's also the same plate number on the vehicle Llewellyn's wife pulls up to the house in after her mother's funeral.

Revealing mistake: Chigurh's shotgun is a semi-automatic, yet in none of the scenes where he fires it do we see it ejecting an empty shell casing.

Suggested correction: The gun that Chigurh is not a semi-automatic, but some sort of air compressed shot.

It's not a semi automatic but a pump action shotgun where a spent shell is not ejected from the weapon until the pump is moved forward, away from the shooter and then a new round is loaded as the pump moves backward, towards the user. The weapon is not an air compressed shot, it just has a large silencer on it.

Revealing mistake: Chigurh's shotgun has a black finish and a synthetic stock. While these are popular on today's "tactical" shotguns they were not available in 1980.

Revealing mistake: When Chigurh is preparing to blow up the car in front of the drugstore, he uses a piece of cloth as the fuse. He removes the gas cap, places a piece of cardboard over the opening, and lays the cloth on the cardboard. He then lights the cloth and walks into the drugstore. After the flames burn through the cardboard and reach the fumes from the gas tank, the car explodes. If you watch the burning cloth as he walks into the drugstore, you will notice that it never moves, not even when the car explodes. If the explosion had been real, the burning cloth would have been blown away from the car by the hot gases expanding out of the gas tank opening.

Trivia

After burning and exploding a car, Anton Chigurh enters in a pharmacy called Mike Zoss Pharmacy, to steal syringes, antibiotics and other stuff. The Coen brothers hung out at the real "Mike Zoss Drugs" when they were growing up and named it after him in the film as an homage. Mike Zoss Productions is the name of their production company (also named after the same man).
