Carnosaur (1993)

Carnosaur is a 1993 science fiction horror film produced by Roger Corman that centers around a small town that finds itself under siege from genetically created dinosaurs. The film was produced at an extremely fast rate and low budget in order to capitalize on then upcoming blockbuster Jurassic Park and even sought to cast Diane Ladd, who is the mother of Jurassic Park co-star Laura Dern. The film was successful enough to produce several DTV sequels including Carnosaur 2 and Carnosaur 3: Primal Species.

Handguns

SIG-Sauer P226

During a scene in which two security officers from the poultry plant are chasing the Deinonychus in a van, one of them fires at it with a SIG-Sauer P226, just before the animal charges the van.

A factory black (K-Kote) SIG-Sauer P226 pistol chambered in 9x19mm. This is a real movie gun and has appeared in several motion pictures.

Glock 17

When entering Dr. Jane Tiptree's lab, Doc is armed with a Glock 17 pistol fitted with a laser sight, which appears to have been taken from one of the dead security guards in the van whom he finds before visiting the lab. He later uses it to shoot out the laser fences in the Tyrannosaurus Rex holding pen. Judging by the custom under-barrel laser design, this is one of the same Glock 17s originally built for RoboCop 3.
