The Wire - Season 3
Work In Progress
The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series The Wire:
The police officers use Glock 17. Many of the police officers refer to their weapons as "Nine(s)".
Colt Gold Cup national Match Enhanced
In the third Season episode "Middle Ground" Omar (Michael K. Williams) pulls out a stainless steel Colt Gold Cup national Match Enhanced during his confrontation with Brother Mouzone (Michael Potts) during the opening scene. Brother Mouzone and Omar get into an amusing conversation about the relative merits of their respective pistols (1911 and Walther PPK). Cheese also carries one throughout the series. It is used to put down his dog in the second episode of Season 3 and he is seen aiming it at a fellow Co-Op member in the final episode.
Stringer Bell (Idris Elba) pulls out a stainless steel CZ 75B from a drawer and tucks it into the waistband of the small of his back in "Moral Midgetry". In the Season 3 finale "Mission Accomplished", Avon Barksdale (Wood Harris) reaches into a drawer and pulls out the same pistol. It later reappears when the police are raiding Avon's safehouse.
At the end of Season 3 Omar throws all of his weapons away into the dock and gets this along with his trademark shotgun.
