Nude Nuns with Big Guns
This article currently has one or more unidentified weapons.
Nude Nuns with Big Guns is a 2010 nunsploitation spoof about Sister Sarah (Asun Ortega) who, after almost being beaten to death, takes revenge on those who drugged and abused her; corrupt local clergymen and members of the motorcycle gang ‘Los Muertos’.
Filmed on a relatively low budget, the movie has the same ingredients as such classics as From Dusk Till Dawn and El Mariachi; sleazy bars, violent encounters, dusty road-side gas stations and artfully shot Texmex landscapes with accompanying dramatic Mexican guitar play.
It is likely that for budgetary reasons most guns have been procured from suppliers of non-firing replica guns. The actual supplier cannot be identified with certainty so for reasons of simplicity, the original gun is assumed below.
The following guns were used in the film Nude Nuns with Big Guns:
For the final shoot-out at the strip club that serves as the HQ of the ‘Los Muertos’ motorcycle gang, Sister Sarah (Asun Ortega) packs a M1928 Thompson submachine gun. She uses it to deadly effect on unlucky visitors and gang members who stand in her way of final revenge.
Motorcycle gang ‘Los Muertos’ president Chavo (David Castro) carries an unidentified variant of the M1911A1. It may very well be some kind of non-firing dummy pistol because it has a strange ‘weathered’ look, the hammer does not lock back even when the trigger seems to be pulled back, and on many occasions it is held close too close for comfort next to actor’s faces.
The receptionist of the Palms Motel takes a stainless 4” Ruger GP100 revolver as she apprehends Sister Sarah who was found out to be taking refuge in her motel.
Smith & Wesson Schofield
When Sister Sarah is almost beaten to death by a visitor of the strip club, she is saved by Mr. Foo (Maxie J. Santillan Jr.) who gives her a pair of ornately engraved Smith & Wesson Schofields in nickel finish to carry out her revenge plans. She uses these revolvers during most of the following shoot-outs, carrying them backwards (‘grips aimed forward’) in shoulder holsters over her nun’s habit.
Single Action Army
Chavo (David Castro), Kick-Stand (Xango Henry) and most other bad guys pack Single Action Army ‘Cavalry Model’ non-firing replica’s of unknown make. Some have the characteristic ejector rods removed or shortened and most of the time they are carried in a casual style in a belt across the hips.
J.C. Higgins Model 20
During Sister Sarah’s raid on the cocaine processing facility, a ‘heroic’ member of the ‘Los Muertos’ motorcycle gang who guards the place is seen with a J.C. Higgins Model 20 with sawed-off stock and barrel.
Reck Miami 92F
Apart from the Smith & Wesson Schofield’s that Sister Sarah keeps in shoulder holsters, she’s also packing a couple of nickel finished Reck Miami 92F’s in waist holsters. Apart from some dramatic cocking and loading shots, the Reck Miami 92F’s are not seen used by her.
Colt 1878 shotgun
For her confrontation with the devious Father Carlito, Sister Sarah packs a sawn-off Colt 1878 shotgun. It is seen when she is making preparations but is never used in real action.
Father Carlito (Perry D'Marco) takes an unidentified compact gun from a cut-out bible when Sister Sarah catches up with him. It has gold-plated levers and bears some resemblance to the Bersa Thunder 380 (which has a version with gold-plated levers). Also, Makarov PM and Walther PPK have been suggested, but not enough details can be seen for a positive identification.
During the final gunfight, several thugs show up carrying unidentified revolvers. They could be the previously used Single Action Army (left) and Ruger GP100 (right) but again there are not enough details for positive identification.
