Strapped (1993)

Strapped is a 1993 film that went directly to HBO, and was directed by actor Forest Whitaker. The movie is perhaps most notable for being the acting debut of its star, Bokeem Woodbine, who subsequently went on to a lengthy career in TV and cinema. Strapped is also controversial amongst American gun owners due to its depiction of the relationship between Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) and the illegal arms trade.

Please note that IMFDB does not endorse this movie's anti-gun message, which may offend American gun owners in general, and FFLs in particular.


The following weapons were used in the film Strapped:

Revolvers

Charter Arms revolver

At the beginning of the film, Diquan Mitchell (Bokeem Woodbine) stumbles upon two kids arguing in his apartment building, one of whom draws a Charter Arms revolver with a semi-bobbed hammer and stainless finish and then kills the other. The revolver is either a Charter Arms Off Duty or a Charter Arms Undercover. Diquan takes the revolver and hides it behind a speaker in his room. He later uses it at the end of the film.

Pistols

Jennings Pistol

When Diquan goes into the sandwich store run by the gun dealer Mike (Jaime Tirelli), he is shown a number of inexpensive, compact pocket pistols ("Saturday Night Specials"). One of them is a Jennings Pistol; Diquan says it looks like a .25 ACP, but Mike corrects him and says it's actually a .32 ACP. This gun is also visible in the trunk of Ben's (Craig Wasson's) car.

Raven Arms MP-25

Mike opens up a Styrofoam food container to show Diquan several pistols inside. Two of them are Raven Arms MP-25s, one blued, the other nickel. The nickel MP25 is later offered to Bamboo (Fredro Starr) by Ben.

Smith & Wesson 6906

When Diquan brings in his friend Willie to purchase a "Nine" from Mike, Mike offers Willie an older-model Smith & Wesson 6906 with a squared trigger guard for $900. A newer-model 6906 (recognizable by the rounded trigger guard) is also visible in the Georgia gun shop's display case.

Trivia: Willie is played by a then-unknown Isaiah Washington, later of Grey's Anatomy infamy.

Glock 17

When Diquan and Bamboo decide to go into business selling guns themselves, they make a trip down to a gun shop in Georgia. There, they pay a friend of a friend to buy them three 9x19mm Glock 17s and/or Glock 19s (both types are seen in the store's display case, so it can be assumed that they might have purchased one or two of each). Bamboo also carries around a Glock 17 in several scenes, which is used most notably at the end of the film. Bamboo's Glock appears to be a 1st Generation model.

Ruger P85

Bamboo uses a Ruger P85 during the scene where he threatens the convenience store clerk and later shoots a little girl by accident.

Glock 19

Glock 19s can be seen several times in the film, first in Mike's sandwich shop when he shows Diquan his guns, and later at the gun shop in Georgia when Diquan and Bamboo are looking over guns. Since they wind up buying three 9mm Glocks (model never specified nor shown), it can be assumed they may have purchased one or two Glock 19s as well as -17s.

Colt Commander (?)

A nickel Colt Commander-type 1911 pistol is seen in the arms stash in Mike's sandwich shop. It's hard to tell exactly what model it is, but it is certainly a compact 1911-type gun. It's likely that this is the same pistol which can be seen in the holster of the sales clerk at the Georgia gun shop.

Submachine Guns

Intratec TEC-9

After Diquan asks Mike to show him the "real deal", Mike opens up a storage cabinet filled with various 9mm pistols and several Intratec TEC-9s. Diquan tries out one of the TEC-9s, pretending to be interested in buying it, but Mike says he is selling the weapon for $1,000, out of Diquan's price range. Later, when Bamboo is trying out guns that Mike has for sale, he can be seen firing a TEC-9.

IMI Uzi

Ben (Craig Wasson) is often seen in the movie wielding a full-size Uzi submachine gun, which he apparently prefers to keep around for his own security.

MAC-10

In one scene of the film, Ben lets Bamboo try out a MAC-10 machine pistol in an abandoned warehouse, and Bamboo says he falls in love with the gun (to which Ben replies, "Makes one helluva nasty bride, let me tell you.") Later in the film, the NYPD detectives led by Matthew McRae (Michael Biehn) attempt to arrest Ben after he is caught trying to smuggle MAC-10s into New York.

Calico M950

When Ben is trying to find out if Bamboo sold him out to the police, he goes to Busta (Busta Rhymes) and offers him a Calico M950 pistol for only $350 (far less than the weapon's retail or street price) if he can provide the information Ben desires.
