Running Scared (2006)
Running Scared is a 2006 crime thriller starring Paul Walker as Joey Gazelle, a low life mobster who is asked to dispose of some guns used in a drug deal between mobsters and dirty cops that went bad. Instead of throwing them in the river as he should, Joey hides the guns in his basement, which proves to be a mistake when Joey's son Nicky (Alex Neuberger) and his neighbor friend Oleg Yugorsky (Cameron Bright) witness him hiding them. Oleg steals the .38 snubnose used by Tommy "Tombs" Perello (Johnny Messner) and attempts to kill his abusive Russian stepfather, Anzor Yugorsky (Karel Roden), which he fails to do. To make matters worse, Anzor's uncle is mob boss Ivan Yugorsky (John Noble), who is displeased by this murder attempt. Now Joey must get the gun back, save Oleg, and hope he survives the night. Despite the American setting, the film was shot in Prague, and several of the semi-automatic handguns seen in the film are in reality 8mm blank firing props (because most of these guns common to the US are unavailable in the Czech Republic). Not to be confused with the 1986 film of the same name that starred Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines.
The following weapons were used in the film Running Scared (2006):
Smith & Wesson Model 36
The story revolves around the ".38 Snubnose" used by Tommy "Tombs" Perello (Johnny Messner) during the bad drug deal at the start of the film, a nickel plated Smith & Wesson Model 36 with ivory grips, which he uses to kill several dirty cops, requiring the weapon to be disposed of. He gives the snubnose to Joey to get rid of, but he instead hides it in his basement, where it is stolen by Oleg Yugorsky (Cameron Bright) and used to shoot his step-father Anzor Yugorsky (Karel Roden). Oleg is hiding out when he is found by the Raggady Man (played by one of the main characters uncredited). Who forces Oleg on a ride along to rip off some drug dealers. A shootout occurs leaving the two drug dealers dead. Oleg takes off again with S&W 36. Where he finds a prostitute (Idalis DeLeon) being beaten by her pimp (David Warshofsky). The gun is later given to a prostitute "Divina" (Idalis DeLeon), who helps Oleg out. Eventually Joey's son Nicky (Alex Neuberger) hides it in the tank of a diner toilet, where it is found by Manny Perez (David Monteiro). Manny loses it in a card game to Julio (Thomas Rosales Jr.). Lester the Pimp's (David Warshofsky) brings his Cadillac into Julio's shop, Julio shows off what he won in a card game. Lester the Pimp sees that it's the same gun from before and buys it from Julio for $500 because of the significance of the gun. He then turns the tables on Oleg and Joey at the end of the film by holding it on them.
Joey Gazelle's (Paul Walker) sidearm throughout the film is an M1911A1 pistol. In reality, it is a Bruni 8mm blank firing stage prop, as indicated by its muzzle diameter, gas port behind ejection port, short fully-cocked hammer, and external extractor.
A Glock 17 is used by a drug dealer who holds Oleg (Cameron Bright) hostage, before he is killed in a shootout with the Raggedy Man. A Glock is also used by Anzor Yugorsky (Karel Roden) during the final shootout in the hockey rink before he is killed. It is then taken and used by Ivan Yugorsky (John Noble) and then taken and used by Joey briefly. In reality, the gun is an 8mm Bruni "GAP" pistol.
A Umarex GPDA-9 is wielded by Sal "Gummy Bear" Franzone (Michael Cudlitz) during the opening shootout, and is also taken by Joey (Paul Walker) to dispose of. Instead he stores it in his basement and it is taken by Teresa Gazelle (Vera Farmiga), who uses it to kill the creepy couple (who seem like they came out of Germanic folklore) who kidnap Oleg (Cameron Bright). In reality it is a 9mm blank firing prop based on the Browning BDA.
Tommy "Tombs" Perello (Johnny Messner) wields a Beretta 92FS during the final shootout, which is later picked up and used by Oleg (Cameron Bright). In reality the pistol is a Bruni Model 92 blank firing 8mm stage prop.
An unknown FBI agent is seen using a CZ-100 pistol as his sidearm. Being that this movie is filmed in Prague and the CZ-100 is produced in the Czech Republic, it is likely this is an actual blank converted firearm that the armorers own and not an 8mm prop.
Single Action Army
Colt Dragoon 1848 2nd Model
The dirty cops during the bad drug exchange use a couple of Franchi PA7 shotguns with 14" barrels and pistol grips.
One of the dirty cops during the bad drug exchange wields a sawed off 18" Remington 870 with raised barrel ribbing and wood furniture.
One of the mobsters during the bad drug deal is packing an IMI Uzi but is shot before he can use it.
Rifles / Carbines
Unknown AR-15 Variant
FBI Agents are seen armed with unknown AR-15 variants with carbine barrels and forends, A1-style upper receivers, and full stocks. They are likely airsoft props, similar to the ones seen in Daredevil.
Joey (Paul Walker) has quite a collection of firearms he should have disposed of stored in his basement, keeping them as evidence for later convictions.
