Laser Mission is a 1989 direct-to-video action movie directed by BJ Davis (who was primarily known as a stunt coordinator) and starring Brandon Lee, Debi A. Monahan and Ernest Borgnine. Although a relatively obscure B-movie, however like all of Brandon Lee's films, enjoyed a brief spike in popularity in the mid-nineties following his abrupt death during the filming of The Crow.

The following weapons were used in the film Laser Mission:


Browning Hi-Power

Michael Gold (Brandon Lee) carries a Browning Hi-Power for most of the film.

Alissa (Debi A. Monahan) carries a Beretta 92 in a thigh holster for most of the film.

Rocket Launcher
