Dead Reckoning - S6-E20

Character mistake: At the start, Kort takes the gun from one guy and uses it. He then places it at the second man's body without wiping it for prints. When he swaps his gun though, he wipes it for prints. Why didn't he wipe the first gun he used? (00:00:50)

Bounce - S6-E16

Visible crew/equipment: While Tony and Renny are alone in Interrogation, in the closeup Renny explains he and Grady were friends, and he just wanted to find out why Grady testified against him.

Capitol Offense - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: After Senator Kiley asks Gibbs to keep his name out of it until after the vote, it cuts to Ziva holding Carrie McLellan's Academy graduation photo (gold frame looks like an 8x10).
