The Town is a 2010 crime drama directed by and starring Ben Affleck as a Boston bank robber who begins to have feelings for a victim of one of his earlier heists. While the film was adapted from the book Prince of Thieves, Affleck acknowledged that the 1995 film Heat was a big influence (the film even shows Affleck's character watching the film). The cast includes Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm and Pete Postlethwaite.
The following weapons were used in the film The Town:
