The Taking of Beverly Hills (1991)

The Taking of Beverly Hills is a 1991 action film directed by Sidney J. Furie and starring Ken Wahl as David "Boomer" Hayes, a professional football quarterback who unexpectedly finds himself the only one who can prevent the widespread robbery of the city of Beverly Hills during a supposed gas leak. The film could be described as "Die Hard in Beverly Hills", and even features Robert Davi in a supporting role.

The following weapons were used in the film The Taking of Beverly Hills:


Taurus PT92

Several henchmen disguised as police officers are armed with the Taurus PT92 pistols. The pistol is also carried by Officer Ed Kelvin (Matt Frewer) and is seen in the hands of pro football quarterback David "Boomer" Hayes (Ken Wahl).

Barrett M82

Benitez (Branscombe Richmond) also is seen with an original Barrett M82 with a significantly shortened barrel (possibly a custom job). This appears to be the same customized rifle that was later used in the film Silent Trigger.
