Savages is a 2012 narco-thriller directed by Oliver Stone and based on the novel of the same name by Don Winslow (who co-wrote the screenplay and was also the author of The Life and Death of Bobby Z). The film follows two successful marijuana-dealing friends: Chon (Taylor Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL, and Ben (Aaron Johnson), a UC Berkley graduate who must fight back against the Baja Cartel, run by Elena La Reina (Salma Hayek) and her enforcer Lado (Benicio del Toro), who have kidnapped their girlfriend O (Blake Lively) in order to push them out of the business.
The following weapons were used in the film Savages:

At the film's beginning, Chon (Taylor Kitsch) is seen spinning the cylinder of a Ruger LCR. The novel states that he pulls out a .38, when the Cartel asks him if he has a gun on hand. It is likely that this is the same gun, since the LCR comes in .357 and .38.
