Guns is a 1990 action movie about a group of Federal agents trying to uncover an international arms smuggling ring. It stars Sidaris regulars Bruce Penhall as Bruce, Michael J. Shane as Shane and Dona Speir as Donna with Danny Trejo, Erik Estrada and George Cheung in supporting roles as bad guys.
The movie was directed by Andy Sidaris as part of his “Bullets, Bombs and Babes” (a.k.a. “L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies”) film series. These action movies were predominantly filmed on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and featured a cast mostly made up of Playmates in the roles of secret agents.
The following weapons were used in the film Guns (1990):
Beretta 950BS Jetfire
The Beretta 950BS Jetfire is used by assassins Tito (Richard Cansino), Cubby (Chu Chu Malave) and Cash (Devin DeVasquez) as well as by Federal agents Bruce (Bruce Penhall), Donna (Dona Speir) and several of their uncredited colleagues.

An equally ‘glamorous’ Cubby also using a suppressed Jetfire in an assassination attempt, like Tito disguising in drag.
Cash during a hit with a pearl-gripped and suppressed Jetfire, note the dangerous way she’s holding the gun.

Raven Arms MP-25
The Raven Arms MP-25, a regular gun in Andy Sidaris movies, is being handled by Federal agent Nicole (Roberta Vasquez).

Dan Wesson Model 15-VH
Shane (Michael J. Shane) once again carries his trademark Dan Wesson Model 15-VH. It is also used by his fellow team member Donna during the shoot-out at the gym.

Heckler & Koch P7
The Heckler & Koch P7 is used by thugs Tong (Danny Trejo) and Rustam (Rustam Branaman), as well as by Federal agents Edy (Cynthia Brimhall) and Kym (Kym Malin).

Abe puts the Heckler & Koch P7 on the table, right before Rustam grabs it, note the H & K logo plus ‘P7’ on the grip.
Edy checking evidence while she holds the Heckler & Koch P7. The silencer is probably fake.
Kym (Kym Malin
) caressing her Heckler & Koch as she awaits the signal to get into action.

Single Action Army
In a flashback scene to the death of his brother, Federal agent Abe recalls how his brother used a Colt Single Action Army to defend himself from thugs in a helicopter.

Abe’s brother (uncredited actor) defending himself with the SAA, note the distinctive cylinder under the barrel.
Arms trafficker Juan Degas (Erik Estrada) carries a Luger P08 with a laser aimpoint in the casino. It is never fired which is just as well since the attachment would block the upward motion of the slide of the gun.
Juan holding the Luger P08 on a hostage, the (unrealistic) laser aimpoint probably making the P08 look more ‘evil’.

Harrington & Richardson Model 733
A bodyguard (David Grossman) tries to stop the kidnapping of a senator with a Harrington & Richardson Model 733. An uncredited Federal agent is also seen with this pistol.

The teamleader of the Federal agents Lucas (William Bumiller) carries a M1911A1-style gun, because of the thick wooden grips with large screw holes, it’s most probably a Kimar 911.
Lucas revealing his Kimar 911 right before a raid, note the crude wooden grips and the fact that he’s not using a holster.
Probably the best proof that this is not a real gun: Lucas cocking the gun with his finger on the trigger...
Like in Hard Hunted, Bruce continues to carry a Intratec TEC-22 as his side arm. Unexplainably, he manages to carry it under his shirt.

In the final scene at the docks in Hawaï, several detectives can be seen holding the IMI Uzi on gun traffickers.

Rather than aiming his Uzi to hold up the gun traffickers, this detective seems just to be posing for the camera.

Ruger MZ14 Bullpup
A Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup rifle with a 20-round magazine and a fake rocket launcher features prominently. Juan buys a shipment from corrupt Chinese government official Sifu (George Cheung).

During the bust at the Hawaï docks, police officers are supported by Army soldiers, all carrying M16A1 rifles.

Winchester Model 1200 Mariner
Federal agent Abe (Chuck McCann) uses a Winchester Model 1200 Mariner with pistol grip on two suspects that he’s questioning about the murder of his brother.

Abe aims his Model 1200 at the suspects, giving a good view of the distinctive sights on the barrel.
The typical Model 1200 forestock is visible when Abe blows smoke from the barrel.
Fake rocket launcher #1
Donna carries a fake rocket launcher throughout the movie, apparently made from plastic pipes mounted on an unidentified air pistol.

A good view on the profile of the launcher, a few seconds later she’ll actually use the launcher to shoot somebody down.
Fake Rocket Launcher #2
The agents are attacked by thugs firing what should represent a rocket launcher from a helicopter (!). Visual examination reveals an electrical wire intended to ignite the charge in the barrel.
Mk II Hand Grenade
Assassin Cash uses a booby-trapped Mk II hand grenade when she kills Abe in the Lake Mead sequence.
