Creedy (Tim Pigott-Smith): Bollocks. Whatchya gonna do, huh? We've swept this place. You've got nothing. Nothing but your bloody knives and your fancy karate gimmicks. We have guns. V (Hugo Weaving): No, what you have are bullets, and the hope that when your guns are empty I'm no longer standing, because if I am you'll all be dead before you've reloaded. --V for Vendetta
Because 9mm blanks were more reliable than .45 ACP blanks prior to the 1980s, the Star Model B or the Colt Government Model pistol was often substituted by Hollywood productions for the M1911 pistol.
The first appearance of the Glock 17 in a major Hollywood production was in Season 3 of the series Miami Vice.
