Shoot 'Em Up is a 2007 action crime comedy film directed and written by Michael Davis. Starring Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti and Monica Bellucci.
The following weapons were used in the film Shoot 'Em Up:
At the beginning of the film, the Baby's Mother (Ramona Pringle) draws a Walther PPK from her purse and uses it to try and kill the 1st Killer (Wiley M. Pickett). The gun jams on her, but luckily Mr. Smith (Clive Owen) is there just in time to save her. After killing 1st Killer with a carrot (we know it's insane), he fixes the malfunctioned gun and uses it for the entire first shootout before running out of ammo.
The Mother fires her Walther PPK at the 1st Killer.
The Walther PPK jams on the Mother (Ramona Pringle), although it would appear as if the gun just locked empty. When Smith picks it up to use it, he simply releases the slide, instead of clearing a jam. We can assume the weapons coordinator loaded only one blank in it and later just stuck a loaded magazine in it for the next scene.
Mr. Smith fires the Walther PPK at the bad guys.
Smith rolls out from cover and shoots an oil tank on a nearby truck so he can use it to slide and shoot, another ridiculous logic.
Smith dispatches multiple bad guys by diving through a window over their cover and landing right in front of them. It doesn't appear as if he is aiming though, more like he is just firing and moving his arm left and right until they are all dead.
Smith opens the title for the film.
Smith reloads the Walther PPK.
Smith shoots the baby's umbilical cord (which looks very
CG) with the PPK. The muzzle flash is a post production edit as noted by how the hammer stays in double action configuration.
The PPK runs empty, but he racks the slide repeatedly like it broke or something. This is indicated for sure by the next line.
"What a piece of crap." Smith throws away the PPK after it goes empty, apparently thinking it broke. This is likely a jab at the fact this is James Bond's sidearm, and Clive Owen
was at one point suggested to play this role.
Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX
Mr. Karl Hertz (Paul Giamatti) uses a satin nickel Desert Eagle Mark XIX chambered in .50 AE (you can tell this, because the Mark XIX .357 and .44 Magnum models all have fluted barrels, this one does not) and fitted with a custom muzzle brake as his sidearm in the film, which the director chose as his weapon because he improperly believed it to be "the most powerful handgun in the world" and wanted to portray Hertz as a "pussy with a gun in his hand", as quoted in the film.
A notable mistake in the film is during the scene in which Hertz interrogates Donna Quintano (Monica Bellucci) or "D.Q" by burning her with the hot barrel of his Desert Eagle, firing it more times increasingly to make it hotter. Smith interrupts and Hertz points his Desert Eagle at him, only for Smith to tell him he's "blown his load", claiming the gun is a six-shooter, when in fact the .50 AE model holds seven shots plus one in the chamber. For that matter, none of the Desert Eagle variants hold six shots. It can be assumed that the writer of the script intended Hertz to have a magnum revolver, such as the Smith & Wesson Model 500, instead of the Desert Eagle (however, the Smith 500 only holds 5 rounds), the other possibility is the former most powerful handgun in the world Smith & Wesson Model 29 which is a six-shooter.

Right away we see see what type of person Hertz is when he kills his own man for squirming too much and ruining his shot. For this scene, a low powered blank and protective clothing were used so the actor would not be killed by the round at close range. What made this scene dangerous is that full powered blanks are loaded after that so Hertz could continue firing at Smith. This shot compares the film version to the special features version where we see the CGI blood added in.
Hertz fires his Desert Eagle at Smith and the mother.

Smith disarms Hertz of his Desert Eagle and holds it on him.
Close up on the Desert Eagle as Smith holds it on Hertz.
Hertz points out to Smith that his Desert Eagle is fitted with a "state-of-the-art" thumb print safety device so only he can fire it. Charles Taylor designed this by adding lights to the grip, one light blue for the thumb, and one that turned either red or green to confirm authorization of the user. Note the .50 AE stamp on the nose of the gun.

"Come on, Smith, guns don't kill people -- but they sure help!"
"Can't talk right now, honey, I'm right in the middle of something."
Hertz struggles to raise his Desert Eagle at the end of the film.
Taurus PT92 AFS
Smith (Clive Owen) takes a Taurus PT92AFS off of one of the thugs on the rooftop and uses it for a good portion of the film.

The 1st Killer (Wiley M. Pickett) with a Taurus PT92 AFS.
Smith takes the Taurus PT92 AFS off of on of the thugs on the roof after knocking him out by throwing Hert's Desert Eagle at his head. Note how the slide clearly reads "PT 92 AFS".
Smith fires his Taurus PT92 AFS during the rooftop shootout. With this gun, he takes a sign that says "FAULK TRUCK AND TOOL" and shoots it so it says "FUK U" (the camera ignores the "TOOL" part for another joke later).
Smith accidentally drops his PT92 AFS in a dirty toilet while hiding in a bathroom stall, so he takes it to the baby changing station to clean it. In reality, armorer Al Vrkljan
was the one cleaning the gun and putting it back together, as he was faster than Clive Owen
Smith disassembles the PT92 AFS to clean all the parts, all while The Lone Man (Greg Bryk
) nears closer.
Smith reassembles the gun just in time and chambers it as Lone Man yells through the bathroom door.
An excellent close up of the PT92 AFS when Smith tries to fire it through the bathroom door, only for it to misfire due to wet ammunition. Note how he fires it double action despite chambering it and cocking the hammer seconds before.
As Lone Man tries to stab Smith with a Stiletto knife, he puts the PT92 AFS under a hand drier to dry the wet bullets. The chance of this working is pretty slim.
Smith fires his PT92 AFS at the playground, using it to shoot the spinning carousel the baby is on so Hertz can't shoot him.
Smith fires his PT92 AFS some more at the carousel. Once he is about three feet from it, it is questionable as to why he doesn't just spin it with his hand instead of "expend his second cartridge
on the playground", as Hertz inaccurately states.
Smith kills a bad guy in his house with his PT92 AFS before it runs empty.
Taurus PT92 (two-tone)
A two-tone Taurus PT92 used by one of Hertz's thugs in Smith's house. In what appears to be a continuity error, reverse two-tone version replaces the Lone Man's Smith & Wesson Model 629.

Glock 17 pistols (both 2nd and 3rd generation) are used by several of Hertz's (Paul Giamatti) thugs throughout the film. At one point in the film, Smith takes a 3rd gen Glock 19 from a dead thug and holds it on Hertz, but Hert tells him the gun has the same thumb print safety as his Desert Eagle (which conveniently fits right in the thumb relief). Smith then reveals the severed hand of the owner and activates the safety just in time to shoot Hertz in the bullet proof vest before he stabs him with a hunk of glass. He then remarks, "Nothing like a good hand-job." We later see him produce a two-tone model with a chrome slide in the Hammerson factory, which he tosses away, setting off a trip wire and killing a thug holding a gun on him. This same two-tone Glock 17 is used by the Diner Holdup Leader (David Ury) at the end of the film.

) is slurping.
During the shootout in his house, Smith grabs a two-tone SIG-Sauer P226 with a newer milled slide and uses it throughout the shootout before it runs dry. Smith also uses a K-Kote model taken from a Secret Service agent to hold up Senator Rutledge (Daniel Pilon) on his plane and uses it during the ridiculous sky diving shootout. This is strange because the Secret Service should be using P229s.

Smith fires his SIG during the skydiving shootout before it "clicks" empty, even though an empty gun's slide locks back on the magazine follower. Note how the barrel has also been milled down for blank conversion.
The two-tone SIG P226 used in the film is seen on the table among Charles Taylor's weapons.
SIG-Sauer P226R pistols (SIG P226s with picattiny rails on the frame) are used by several of Hertz's men. Technically these are now the official P226s but on this site we still call them P226Rs for easier categorization.

Aside from the SIG P226 Smith draws off a Secret Serviceman, the other USSS members use SIG-Sauer P228 pistols, despite the fact that the USSS currently uses P229s, not P228s.

Heckler & Koch USP-9
Smith (Clive Owen) takes a Heckler & Koch USP-9 with a stainless slide off of a thug in his house after his SIG runs out of ammo. He mainly uses it for the shootout in the Hammerson factory. Smith is prominently seen wielding two of these two-tone USPs on the film cover, although for whatever reason they have the slide of a Desert Eagle digitally edited onto them.

Heckler & Koch USP Expert
A Heckler & Koch USP Expert fitted with a stainless slide is used by the Diner Hood with Earring (Mike Rad) before Smith (Clive Owen) kicks it from his hand. Because all his fingers were broken and casted, he catches the gun on a carrot held firmly in the cast and uses the carrot to pull the trigger while hitting the gun with his other hand.

Para-Ordnance Nite-Tac pistols in both stainless and black are used by Hertz's men when Hertz (Paul Giamatti) teams up with Hammerson (Stephen McHattie), whom the guns are produced from. The logo by Para-Ordnance is shaved off and Hammerson's logo is added instead with laser engraving and backfilling.

Smith observes the Hammerson logo on one of the black Para-Ordinance Nite-Tac pistols used by Hertz's elite men. Note how on the frame rail the stamp states the pistol was made in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida even though they are said to be made in the Hammerson factory. Where the factory is in the film is definitely not Florida.

Smith reaches for the Nite-Tac in the back seat. Usually when guns are hit by bullets some external damage is visible.
Smith shoots out the windshield with two shots from his Nite-Tac (apparently he has the cheapest windshield ever installed). In reality, the windshield is CGI so bullet holes could be added in post production.
"Aren't guns just fucking great

Heckler & Koch P7
Heckler & Koch P7 pistols (not able to confirm them being an M8s or M13s) are seen in the pawn shop when Smith (Clive Owen) goes to buy bullets. It can be assumed that these pistols are CO2 copies or airsoft replicas, as are all the guns in the shop.
Heckler & Koch P7M8 - 9mm.

A Heckler & Koch P7 is seen under baby Oliver when D.Q. buys him a bulletproof vest (which wouldn't actually protect a fragile baby at all). Also note the Desert Eagle
and what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P226
next to it, likely an airsoft replica.
A Browning BDM is seen on a pistol rack in the pawn shop. Since it closely resembles the BDM but has some different traits, it is likely a cheap airsoft imitation.

Smith & Wesson Model 629
The Lone Man (Greg Bryk) uses a stainless steel Smith & Wesson Model 629 with a 6" barrel and Hogue grips as his weapon of choice in the film. According to the director, The Lone Man's attachment to the .44 Magnum is apparently sexual, as he is often seen "polishing" it in the bathroom. Byrk was somewhat embarrassed when he was informed of this fact, unaware of this character trait when he signed on for the role.

Smith fires the Micro Galil back at the pursuing vehicle. In the real world, firing a full auto assault carbine one handed (in the non-dominant hand) makes accuracy and control very difficult.

Unknown AK variant
Multiple AK rifles are seen on a rack in the pawn shop but are too close and blurry to tell make and model. These are probably airsoft rifles, seeing as they aren't used in any of the shooting scenes and would probably just be expensive props if they were the real deal. They might also be Norinco copies, which don't cost very much either.

Mossberg 590 "Compact Cruiser"
Smith (Clive Owen) takes a Mossberg 590 Compact Cruiser off of one of Hertz's thugs and uses it to kill another, which unrealistically sends the thug flying in the typical action movie flair.

Mossberg 500 "Cruiser"
Smith uses a Mossberg 500 Cruiser with an extended magazine tube as one of his traps, tossing a tutone Glock on a trip wire to kill a thug with it. When the thug is shot, the director imitates the camera blood splatter technique used in video games.

Smith (Clive Owen) takes bullets from a Para-Ordnance Nite-Tac and holds them between his broken fingers and then sticks his hand in the fireplace, shooting Hertz (Paul Giamatti) eight times. Since we only see four bullets in his hand, we realize they can't even get the capacity of the human hand correct! Some questions are raised: How does he eject the magazine when he can barely pull the trigger? How does he remove the bullets from the magazine with broken fingers? And does having all your fingers broken make your hand numb to all pain? Perhaps the biggest problem, though, is the fact that, without rifling, the bullets wouldn't really go anywhere. If anything, the casings, being lighter, would injure Smith's hand even further. The general idea of the film, however, was to be as outrageous and unbelievable as possible, so none of the errors really matter.
