After identifying themselves, the DEA agents pull their own Glocks on Scudder.
TJ (Brian "Astro" Bradley) keeps a Beretta 92FS with a taped grip in his backbag, after he claims to have found it in a dumpster. Matthew Scudder (Liam Neeson) also handles TJ's Beretta, as he gives him a lesson in gun handling. Ray (David Harbour) also uses a Beretta 92FS in the film, most notably after the exchange at the cemetery.

Jericho 941 RB Compact
One of the robbers uses a stainless Jericho 941 RB Compact during scene in the beginning of the film that takes place in 1991. It is doubtful a criminal would have had a compact Jericho 941 in 1991, since the pistol was first imported in the US in 1990, and the compact models were developed some time later. The Jericho turns into a American Tactical Imports FS9 in a continuity error.

American Tactical Imports FS9
One of the robbers' stainless Jericho 941 RB Compact turns into an American Tactical Imports FS9 (the US import version of the TiSAS Zigana Sport) in a continuity error. The FS9 is also highly anachronistic, since the TiSAS Zigana Sport was only introduced in 2005, and the company, TiSAS, was established in 1993.
