Pack Up Your Troubles is a 1932 pre-Code Laurel and Hardy comedy directed by George Marshall and Raymond McCarey. The film follows the duo's unfortunate draft into World War I, and their post-war debacle caring for their fallen comrade's infant daughter. The title is named after the World War I song "Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag, and Smile, Smile, Smile". The film is Laurel & Hardy's second feature-length film.

The following weapons were used in the film Pack Up Your Troubles:


Smith & Wesson Model M&P

Towards the climax of the film, a detective (Robert Homans) breaks down Laurel & Hardy's door by shooting the lock with a Smith & Wesson Model M&P revolver.

Lefever Nitro Special Shotgun

When Mr. Hathaway (Billy Gilbert) realizes that Laurel & Hardy have ruined his daughter's wedding, he withdraws and fires a Lefever Nitro Special shotgun at Ollie.
