Handguns

Beretta Cougar

The Beretta 8045 Cougar is used throughout the movie by Bobby Carter (Dan Byrd). He uses it to shoot at the two mutants who kill Lynne and Ethel Carter and also to shoot Papa Jupiter (Billy Drago) when he is rushing toward him. Despite having the massive aperture of a .45 ACP pistol, the blanks are not full load and the sound effects are that of a smaller caliber round, leading some to believe it is a 9mm pistol.

Taurus Model 66

A stainless steel Taurus Model 66 is first used by Bob Carter (Ted Levine). He fires four shots before being captured by Jupiter. Later, it is used by Lizard to kill Lynne and Ethel Carter. He attempts to shoot Bobby's sister Brenda with it, but it clicks empty, causing him to drop it and run away- a nice detail as the revolver had been discharged six times in total at this point.

Shotguns

High Standard Model K-1200 Riot Deluxe Model

The High Standard Model K-1200 Riot Deluxe Model is first in the hands of the gas station attendant (Tom Bower) After he shoots himself with it, it is picked up by Cyst (Gregory Nicotero). Later in the movie, Doug (Aaron Stanford), after killing him with the pickaxe, takes the shotgun from him and later uses it to shoot Lizard (Robert Joy) several times at the end of the movie. The shotgun switches between a live firing model and a welded up (formerly live model). Welding up the firearm renders it permanently inoperable and is thus regarded as a mere prop firearm (no armorer needed). Apparently Hi Standard shotguns were so prone to breaking that many that were unrepairable were welded up and kept in inventory as 'non-firing deactivated weapons'.
