Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man (original name Uomini si nasce poliziotti si muore) is a 1976 Italian crime movie directed by Ruggero Deodato. Two Italian police officers Alfredo (Marc Porel) and Antonio (Ray Lovelock) are members of a "special squad" ("death squad" in fact). They are waging a war against criminals using blood-and-dirty methods. It's worth noting that the literally translation of the title is "Men are born, cops dies" which has different sense with the IMDb version of the title.

The following weapons are seen in the movie Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man:
