Men In Black
Men In Black is a 1997 science fiction film based on the Marvel Comics series. The film stars Will Smith as an NYPD detective who gets recruited into a secret government organization that oversees the presence of alien beings on the planet Earth. Tommy Lee Jones stars as the MIB agent who takes him on as a partner. The film was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld (Get Shorty) and would spawn two sequels, which were released in 2002 and 2012.
The following weapons were used in the film Men In Black:
At the beginning of the film, US Border Patrol agents are armed with Mossberg 500 shotguns while conducting a roadblock to catch illegal immigrants.
Smith & Wesson 3913NL
Detective James Edwards (Will Smith) can be seen carrying a Smith & Wesson 3913NL as his weapon of choice, drawing it several times while pursuing a disguised alien on foot, using it to shoot open the door of a building (the Guggenheim) the alien had jumped onto the roof of. He then pulls it on Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) when K disintegrates the head of Jack Jeebs (Tony Shalhoub). Though the pistol looks identical to the S&W 3913LS "Lady Smith", there are several scenes in the movie that show the right hand side of the slide which does not have "Lady Smith" inscribed. These models were released subsequent to the LS and were given the model ID S&W 3913NL for "No Logo" or "Non-LadySmith".
Winchester Model 1897
A Winchester Model 1897 shotgun appears as the weapon of choice of Edgar (Vincent D'Onofrio), who wields it when investigating an alien crash-landing on his farm. The alien (nicknamed "the bug" by the MiB) orders him to place the weapon on the ground, to which Edgar responds by chambering a round and stating that the alien can have his gun when he pries it from his cold dead fingers. The bug then kills and skins Edgar, taking his skin as a costume and also taking the shotgun, brandishing it several times throughout the rest of the film.
SIG-Sauer Non Gun
During the agent selection process at MiB headquarters, the candidates, consisting of several elite U.S. military personnel and Detective Edwards, are placed on a firing range and tasked with engaging a series of targets in a "Hogan's Alley"-esque scenario using "Non Gun" replicas of SIG-Sauer P220-series pistols. The military personnel begin firing numerous rounds at all the alien targets, while Edwards fires only one round into a target made to look like a little girl. When asked why he shot that target, he pointed out how the alien targets appeared not to be posing a threat, while the target he shot was holding science textbooks for subjects far too advanced for her age.
Ruger Super Redhawk
While the bug (disguised as Edgar) is searching New York City for "the galaxy", a tow truck driver (Peter Linari) begins preparing to tow a pest exterminator van stolen by the bug. When the bug confronts the driver with Edgar's shotgun, the driver pulls out a Ruger Super Redhawk, thinking the sight of the revolver would intimidate him, though is fatally mistaken when the bug kills him and takes both his gun and his tow truck.
