Black Dog (1998)

Black Dog is a 1998 action film directed by Kevin Hooks (Passenger 57) and starring Patrick Swayze as Jack Crews, an ex-con who's tricked into running a trailer full of guns from Georgia to New Jersey. The cast includes Randy Travis, Meat Loaf, and Charles S. Dutton.

The following weapons were used in the film Black Dog:


Heckler & Koch USP

Special Agent Ford (Charles S. Dutton) draws a Heckler & Koch USP in the first scene. He draws a Glock 17 in later scenes. Vince (Cyril O'Reilly) carries a USP for most the film. It's hard to tell which type of USP it is.
