V.I.P. (1998-2002)

V.I.P. was an action comedy series distributed by Sony Pictures Television that ran for four seasons on the UPN Network and in syndication throughout the United States. Created by J.F. Lawton (the screenwriter of Under Siege), the series featured Pamela Anderson as a woman who becomes the figurehead of a bodyguard service after unwittingly saving the life of a celebrity. The series was intentionally campy and broad farce and captured the spirit of the 1990s with splashy colors and 'lightweight' villains (one of the last shows to elicit that "pre-9/11" feel). One thing the show had tons of was .... (no not girls in skimpy attire, which was the case) ... guns. And only on V.I.P. could Vallery's team have a full auto shootout with bandits in the street and no vehicles or buildings are damaged. It was a low budgeted series and it showed, but the producers kept up the light feel by not taking the show seriously at all.

Ruger Mk III Suppressed

A Ruger Mk III with suppressor is the primary sidearm of Tasha Dexter (Molly Culver), first seen in Season 1 - Episode 1 "Beats Working at a Hot Dog Stand".

Ruger Mk III pistol with a custom suppressor - .22 LR. The MK II was replaced by the MK III in 2004. The MK II ceased production completely in 2005. All factory pistols after a certain year, are shipped with the Ruger Logo on the plastic grips. This is a film armory pistol with custom grips (that don't have the Ruger logo). This was done to make the weapon more into a stealth assassination piece and the 'bright' colored logo worked against that.

A Mauser C96 is seen in Season 1 - Episode 11 "Good Val Hunting", used by Eric Collier (John D'Aquino). Collier's C96 is nickel plated (judging from the very shiny and almost brand-new finish, it is possible that this is a Chinese-made imitation. Real "Broomhandles" are relatively rare.)
