|Black Out (2012)
Black Out is a 2012 Dutch crime comedy about ex-criminal Jos who, on the day before his wedding, wakes up with a gun in his hand next to an unidentifiable corpse. If that’s not bad enough, several characters from the local crime scene accuse him of stealing 20 kilos of cocaine.
Jos has exactly 24 hours to solve this mess with the inconvenient circumstance is that he’s suffering from a total black out as to what happened the day before. In a race against time, Jos must manage to settle old scores, retrieve the cocaine and last but not least, be in time for his own wedding.
The following guns were used in the film Black Out:
In the opening scene, Jos (Raymond Thiry) wakes up with a corpse to his right and a Taurus PT99AFS to his left. The distinctive raised target sights are clearly visible. This gun is also used by Jos’ partner Bobby (Bas Keijzer), as well as by Jos’ ex-girlfriend Inez (Renée Fokker) and Russian crime boss Vlad (Simon Armstrong).

. Note the good view of the frame-mounted safety.
Obviously dazzled by the bizarre situation that he finds himself in, Jos picks up the Taurus PT99AFS
. The raised target sights are very well visible.
In a recurring flashback, an unidentified shooter uses a Taurus PT99AFS
. When this image is enlarged, ‘PT 99 AFS’ becomes visible on the slide.
Desert Eagle Mark I
A Desert Eagle Mark I is the side-arm of choice for Bobby for most of the movie. Jos also uses it in some scenes as well as Wally (Willie Wartaal) when he and his partner steal Jos’ car and find the gun in the trunk.

COP 357 Derringer
The COP 357 Derringer is used by Inez (Renée Fokker) whose nickname is ‘Coca-Inez’ due to her activities in the drugs trade. This easy to conceal but deadly weapon seems to be very appropriate for her character. Later on, it is taken by Charity (Katja Schuurman) who, together with her partner Petra (played by her real life sister Birgit), serve as debt collectors for godfather Charles.

Vlad’s henchman Saban (Joop Kasteel) carries a Glock 17, when he accompanies Jos to pick up drugs that Jos allegedly owns. It can be identified as a 3rd generation model because of the accessory rail on the frame.

would actually be a rubber stunt gun, but several screenshots show too much detail for that.
Jos finally managing to remove the Glock 17
from Saban’s hands by closing the window so that Saban is stuck and has to let go. Note the gun is too detailed for a stunt gun.
Several characters in the movie carry the Colt M1911A1 pistol but it is impossible to get a good look to determine the version or the manufacturer.

M1911A1 (KWC airsoft)
During the intro credits, an airsoft KWC M1911A1 can be seen. It can be conclusively identified by the engraving with the manufacturer name on the slide just above the forward section of the trigger guard. This particular KWC model seems to be based on the Springfield Armory National Match 1911.

Heckler & Koch P7M13
A Heckler & Koch P7M13, in a rare satin nickel sports version with compensator and target sights, is seen lying on a crate during a drug transaction.

Detective Andre (Alex van Warmerdam) is seen threatening godfather Charles (Edmond Classen) with what seems to be a Beretta 92FS, but more details could prove it to be an airsoft variant.
What looks cool in a movie is not always true in real life. Rather than the Beretta 92FS
, a Dutch detective would be carrying a Walther P5
In a flashback scene, Bobby is seen held at gunpoint with a Walther P1. This is the post-war version of the Walther P38 and can be distinguished by the grooves that extend around the safety lever.
Benelli B76 Sport
During the robbery on the jewellery store, Wally (Willie Wartaal) carries a Benelli B76 Sport that can be reconized by the pronounced front target sight and slide.

Dan Wesson PPC
Local drug dealer Gianni (Robert de Hoog) carries a Dan Wesson PPC revolver. The distinctive target sights have been removed but the gun can still be identified by the massive rectangular barrel.

The same shot but from a different angle. The shape of the barrel, and the corresponding weight, show the compensator function.
Dan Wesson 14
Several characters use the Dan Wesson 14 with 2.5" barrel. It can be identified by the cylinder latch that is located ahead of the cylinder and the fixed sights.

Taurus Model 689
Next to above Dan Wesson 14, Björn (Kempi) is carrying a Taurus Model 689 which can be distinguished from the Colt Python and Colt Anaconda by the 5 ribs in the barrel, the Colt models have 3.

Smith & Wesson Model 686
Gianni’s bodyguard Abel (Sem Schilt) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 686 for those situations where his impressive physique is not enough to make his point.

Another one of Gianni’s thugs, Rex (Horace Cohen) unexpectedly pulls out a Franchi PA3 when a stand-off arises during a drug deal in his boss’ office.

Jos and his partner Bobby use an over-and-under shotgun in their raid on Gianni’s drug stash. The brand cannot be positively identified and both barrel as well as stock are sawn-off.
