The following weapons were used in the film The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!:
Colt Detective Special
We also see a full ejector shroud model with the longer sight as the sidearm of Capt. Ed Hocken (George Kennedy). Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban) shows off his mind control watch to his co-conspirator Pahpschmir, in which his assistant draws a full shroud Detective Special and tries to fire it at him, and puts the gun to her own head as well, only for it to be empty.
Smith & Wesson Model 15
Unknown Colt Revolver
Police at the ball game have unknown Colts in their holsters, likely either Pythons or Troopers.
Smith & Wesson Model 27
The criminal trying to escape Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) as he pursues in a driver's ed cab fires out the back window with what appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 27. It is either that or a New Century Hand Ejector.
Many of the sailors use revolvers at angles to difficult for identification.
An M1911A1 is the sidearm of Det. Nordberg (O.J. Simpson) during his infiltration of the boat "I Love You" before being shot up and barely surviving. Angels outfielder Reggie Jackson, under the control of Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban), is also seen pulling an M1911A1 from under a base plate at the ball game, using it in an attempt to kill Queen Elizabeth II (Jeannette Charles) before Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) fires a tranquilizer round at him, which misses, and hits a fat woman on the upper level, who falls on him with disastrous results. Drebin then picks up the M1911A1 and pursues Ludwig.
One of the sailors on the boat "I Love You" uses a stainless Taurus PT92. A Taurus is also used by a criminal in the meat packing plant before falling into a vat of toxic chemicals (which doesn't seem to follow health code for the plant).
Heckler & Koch P9S
A Heckler & Koch P9S is used by one of the sailors on the boat "I Love You".
Terrorists in Beirut are seen armed with Armalite AR-18 assault rifles.
An AKM is seen slung over the back of a terrorist in Beirut.
One of the terrorists in Beirut is seen armed with an FN FNC.
IMI Galil AR
An IMI Galil AR is seen in the hands of a terrorist in Beirut.
A Kentucky Flintlock Rifle is presented to Queen Elizabeth II (Jeannette Charles) by Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban), but Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) becomes fazed by the loud fanfare and tackles the Queen when he sees the gun pointed at her to get her out of what he believes to be the line of fire.
US Army and Marine honor guard members are seen with M1 Garand rifles during the Angels baseball game.
A Browning M2HB is seen on the back of a jeep in Beirut.
Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban) draws a Micro Uzi during the ball game and uses it to hold up Jane Spencer (Priscilla Presley) before Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) hits him with a tranquilizer round. Unfortunately his mind control system is activated and Jane picks up the Micro Uzi in an attempt to kill Drebin before he proposes and she drops the gun.
