The following weapons were used in the film A Call to Spy:

Handguns

Luger P08

Virginia Hall (Sarah Megan Thomas) uses a Luger P08 when demonstrating how the French resistance can incorporate firearms into their work, instructing that "when you use a gun, double tap: torso, head." Lugers are also prominently used by German Army soldiers and Vichy officers.
