SIG-Sauer P228

In Season 5's "Mr. Monk and the Really, Really Dead Guy", FBI Special Agent Thorpe (Chris Williams) carries a SIG-Sauer P228 as his sidearm. Most real life agents tend to use Glock weapons, like Glock 22s.

Undercover FBI agents and SFPD officers tackle a man they suspect to be a "serial killer" targeting street musicians. He turns out to be an innocent player with a harmonica. This is supposed to represent the in-joke that the FBI and ATF are incompetent at their jobs.

Smith & Wesson 3913

Stottlemeyer uses a Smith & Wesson 3913 as his sidearm for most of the series. The size and dimensions of the pistol, as well as the diameter of the barrel, indicate the model. Various other cops and criminals use various Smith & Wesson pistols as well. In the episode "Mr. Monk Can't See A Thing" (S05E04), a blind Monk grabs Stottlemeyer's gun and uses it to shoot Peter Breen (Jamie Kaler), advancing on them with a knife.

Shotguns

12 Gauge Over/Under Double Barreled Shotgun

In Season 5's "Mr. Monk Is At Your Service" (S05E12), Paul Buchanan (Sean Astin) tries to kill Natalie with an over/under 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun, though is distracted when Monk shows up with an identical shotgun taken from one of Paul's hunting friends, and Monk shoots down a quail with a single shot. Natalie then grabs the gun from Buchanan and she and Monk train both shotguns on Buchanan.

Notice that Natalie has stuffed a pillow down the front of her shirt, pretending to be pregnant in an attempt to ward off Paul's advances. When the episode was filmed in 2006, Traylor Howard was pregnant, so various hides and pretexts were necessary during the latter half of the season to conceal her stomach.
