Actually I thought the gun battle in this episode was hilarious because clearly nobody involved knew how to shoot because they shot a hundred bullets at each other in close range and only 1-2 people got hit!
I thought it was a nice touch of realism, as scientists and civilians wouldn't be able to hit the broad side of a barn.
I was snickering because I could only picture a Police Squad! type gunfight where they are on opposite sides of the same barrel.
