Terminal Velocity (1994)

Terminal Velocity is a 1994 action thriller directed by Deran Sarafian (Death Warrant) and stars Charlie Sheen as Ditch Brody, a skydiving instructor dealing with a tragic accident involving an inexperienced skydiver he took up on her first jump. When he discovers that all is not what it seems, Brody finds himself dealing with a larger conspiracy. The film, which also co-stars Nastassja Kinski and James Gandolfini, was written and co-produced by David Twohy, and is somewhat notable for being one of the earliest films to feature the then-new Heckler & Koch USP pistol.

Smith & Wesson Model 38 "Bodyguard"

Karen (Cathryn de Prume) is seen in her apartment wielding a snub-nose revolver with a covered hammer shroud, which appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 38 "Bodyguard" (though it's hard to tell for sure).

Heckler & Koch USP

Russian mob enforcer Kerr (Christopher McDonald) carries a Heckler & Koch USP as his sidearm in the movie. Terminal Velocity is one of the earliest films to ever feature this pistol (Not the first, as Clear and Present Danger preceded this film's release by just over a month). It is, however, likely the first movie ever to feature this pistol prominently in firing scenes.

Beretta 92FS

During the ambush scene, Ben Pinkwater (James Gandolfini) tries to draw a Beretta 92FS on Krista Moldova and Ditch Brody (Charlie Sheen). Krista takes the gun from him and gives it to Ditch, whose inexperience with guns is demonstrated when he tries to fire the Beretta with the safety on. Most of the other Russian mafiosos also appear to be carrying Berettas in the scene.

The weapon was based on a SAKO A-II action and a 20-inches Douglas barrel, all bedded on a polymer stock with an underfolding buttstock for easier transport.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch SP89 (mocked up as MP5K)

Several of the Russian mafia henchmen throughout the movie carry Heckler & Koch SP89s that have been converted to full-auto and fitted with MP5K foregrips. They are recognizable as SP89s due to their permanently attached all-metal lower receivers.
