WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub
Joe Hallenbeck (Bruce Willis) uses a 2.5" barrel Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snubbie throughout most of the film. It is taken by Milo (Taylor Negron) and used in an attempt to frame Hallenback and leaves it at the crime scene. This gun is accurate for Hallenbeck to carry as he is an ex-U.S. Secret Service Agent and the Model 19 was the standard issue sidearm of the USSS before switching to semi automatic handguns.

Smith & Wesson Model 66 (Snub)
Darian Hallenbeck (Danielle Harris), Joe's daughter, takes a Smith & Wesson Model 66 with a 2.5" barrel out of the car glove compartment and hides it in her stuffed puppet before giving it to Joe, who uses it to shoot several armed thugs holding him up. Just like Joe's Model 19 Snub, the Model 66 Snub is fitted with Pachmayr Presentation grips. Det. McClusky (Clarence Felder) appears to have a Smith & Wesson Model 66 Snub in his holster.
