Hard Ticket to Hawaii is a 1987 action movie, the second in Andy Sidaris' “Bullets, Bombs and Babes” (a.k.a. “L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies”) film series. Donna (Dona Speir) and Taryn (Hope Marie Carlton) accidentaly intercepts an operation of diamonds smuggling and now they are hunted by crime ring.

Like other “Triple B” movies, Hard Ticket to Hawaii was filmed on Hawaii (specifically on Moloka`i) and features a cast mostly made up of Playmates in roles of secret agents.

The following weapons were used in the film Hard Ticket to Hawaii:

Colt Model 1878 (reproduction)

In several scenes Romero's henchman "Earring" (Glen Chin) carries a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun that appears to be a modern replica of Colt Model 1878. In the opening scene another henchman "Shades" (John Dunne) takes the shotgun from "Earring". An unnamed henchman (Joseph Hieu) uses a double barrled shotgun during the shootout on Romero's base. This gun is supposedly the same movie prop that is seen in other Triple B movies.

H. Koon Snake Charmer

The henchman "Skate" (cameo appearance of professional skateboarder Russell Howell) carries a H. Koon Snake Charmer shotgun, a very short single shot .410 in stainless steel with synthetic stocks and a buttstock with a thumb hole pistol grip. During the battle on Romero's base same or similar shotgun is seen in hands of another henchman.

Armalite AR-7

During the attack on Seth Romero's base a two-toned Armalite AR-7 with customized barrel cover, a hand grip and a lightweight synthetic stock is used at first by Jade (Harold Diamond), then by Donna (Dona Speir), and at last by Rowdy (Ronn Moss). It appears to be the same movie prop that is seen in Savage Beach.

Other Weapons

Fake Rocket Launcher

A mockup of a quadruple rocket launcher is seen in hands of Rowdy (Ronn Moss), Jade (Harold Diamond), and Donna (Dona Speir). It appears to be made from plastic pipes, shoots firework rockets and the lower part seems to be based on a Intratec TEC-9 submachine gun with an extremely long magazine guide.

Mk 2 Hand Grenade

In the beginning of the attack on Romero's base Donna (Dona Speir) provides air support by throwing hand grenades from a ultralight trike. The grenades look similar to Mk 2 hand grenades but has a strange addition on the bottom.
