Training Day is a 2001 crime thriller that follows a rookie LAPD officer (Ethan Hawke) who begins his first day with a vice unit headed up by a charismatic detective (Denzel Washington). The film was directed by Antoine Fuqua (Tears of the Sun) from a screenplay written by David Ayer. Denzel Washington would receive the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in the film and a television series adaptation produced by Fuqua and Jerry Bruckheimer is set to premiere on CBS in 2017.
The following weapons were used in the film Training Day:
Officer Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) carries the LAPD standard-issue Beretta 92FS in 9x19mm throughout the film. Much like Jake himself, the Beretta 92FS has a history of reliability, accuracy and ruggedness. For a "by the books" man like Jake, the Beretta 92FS is a great choice. The Beretta 92FS also appears in the hands of several other characters throughout the film, including uniformed LAPD officers and some of the Crips who shoot at Alonzo and Jake in Watts.
Smith & Wesson 4506
Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington) carries two Smith & Wesson 4506 pistols in .45 ACP throughout the movie. .45 ACP handguns were approved for LAPD carry after the infamous North Hollywood shootout. In one scene of the film, where Alonzo and Jake come under fire from a gang of Crips while serving a warrant in the Imperial Courts neighborhood of Watts, he fires both weapons simultaneously, holding one sideways, "gangsta"-style.
Beretta 92FS Inox
The stainless Inox version of the Beretta 92FS appears several times in the film. Tim (Nick Chinlund), one of the men in Alonzo's unit, is seen using one during the raid on the house of Roger (Scott Glenn). Smiley (Cliff Curtis) also carries one, which he shows off to Jake in a not-so-subtle attempt at intimidation.
Mark (Jaime Gomez), one of the men in Alonzo's unit, carries a Glock 17. When Jake confronts Alonzo at his girlfriend's place, Alonzo hands over a Glock 17 with a stainless slide. Some of the Crip gangbangers in the shootout in Watts also carry them.
The smaller Glock 19 also appears several times in the movie. When Alonzo and Jake arrest the wheelchair-bound drug dealer Blue (Snoop Dogg), they confiscate a Glock 19 from him. Paul (Dr. Dre), one of the men in Alonzo's unit, also carries a Glock 19 which he uses to threaten Jake during the standoff in Roger's house. Finally, some of the Crips in Watts are also seen with them.
Intratec TEC-38 Over Under Pocket Pistol
When Alonzo and his men raid his home, Roger (Scott Glenn) is seen dropping what appear to be two Intratec Derringers, aka the Intratec TEC-38 Over Under Pocket Pistols that he had concealed in the newspaper he was reading.
After Jake jumps onto the hood of his car when he's trying to drive off with the money, Alonzo fires at Jake with a M1911A1-type pistol (specific make unknown). Jake later retrieves this pistol and holds it on Alonzo, shooting him with it when he tries to take Bone's Smith & Wesson Model 19.
S&W Model 19 Snub
Mossberg 500 Cruiser
A Mossberg 500 Cruiser shotgun is used by Jake during the raid on Roger's house. Later, Alonzo asks Jake to shoot Roger with this weapon, and when Jake refuses, Alonzo takes the Mossberg and kills Roger himself. In reality, the department would have been issued a Mossberg 500 "Cruiser" with a heat shield.
When Jake confronts Alonzo in his home and disarms him of all his pistols, Alonzo distracts Jake and then reaches under his bed for a sawed-off Remington 870 with a heat shield and a Mark 1 bayonet mount. Earlier in the film, when Alonzo and Jake drive past the scene of a major drug bust, an LAPD officer can be seen holding a standard Remington 870 model on several Latino gangbangers.
Remington 870 Field Gun
When Jake returns to the Imperial Courts at night, he hears the racking action of a pump shotgun. A gang member is then seen on the roof with what appears to be a long barreled model of the Remington 870.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Paul (Dr. Dre) uses a Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine gun (with Navy trigger group) during the raid on Roger's house. It seems to be attached to his ballistic vest with some kind of lanyard. The MP5A3 used in this film was an airsoft replica made by Tokyo Marui, likely because Dr. Dre has a criminal record in real life and the armorer was unable to secure the necessary permit for him to handle a real NFA weapon.
Rifles & Carbines
The Russian mafia hit squad at the end of the film all carry AKMSU carbines that are used in an ambush. When Hoyt returns to the Imperial Courts at night, a gang member is seen on the roof armed with what appears to be AKMSU and makes threats saying, "what you doing on the block, Rookie?" and "you know you don't belong here".
