Monk - Season 2
The following weapons were seen in Season 2 of the television series Monk:
The Beretta 92FS is seen used by various characters in the series including police consultant Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub), Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine), and Lt. Randy Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford). The Beretta is Randy's sidearm throughout the first half of the series, before he swaps to using a Glock 17 sometime prior to the seventh season.
In "Mr. Monk and the Captain's Wife" (S02E14), bank robber Evan Coker (Daniel Goddard) uses a hunting rifle to stop a tow truck repossessing his car, which still contains his 9mm Beretta in the glovebox.
"Lane & Westen"
Probably because of legal objections that came after the episode "Mr. Monk and the Very, Very Old Man," subsequent Beretta pistols which appeared in the series were given the fictional name "Lane & Westen." Even with the alternative name, they are clearly Beretta pistols, and in "Mr. Monk and the Captain's Wife," Evan Coker's handgun is explicitly referred to by Disher as a Beretta. To avoid confusion for any viewers, all "Lane & Westen" pistols will be referred to in this article by the "Beretta" name.
In Season 2's "Mr. Monk and the Three Pies" (S02E11), Monk's brother Ambrose (John Turturro) overhears his neighbor, Pat van Ranken (Holt McCallany) murder his wife, Rita, by shooting her with a 9mm "Lane & Westen." Ambrose claims to be able to recognize the gun just by the shot it fired; Adrian is skeptical at first, stating that Lane & Westen (Beretta) doesn't make a 9mm pistol, but Ambrose counters that they did until 1992 (and he wrote the manual for it). A pistol manufacturer that does not offer a 9mm caliber-weapon is virtually unheard of.
Beretta 92FS Centurion
In Season 2's "Mr. Monk and the Very Very Old Man" (S02E05), Lt. Randy Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford), in trying to distract Captain Stottlemeyer's wife Karen, shows off his newly issued Beretta 92FS Centurion sidearm, correctly described as a "Beretta 9mm Centurion." Unfortunately, he forgets the fact that Karen is a pacifist.
In Season 2's "Mr. Monk Goes to the Ballgame" (S02E03), Walker Browning (Rainn Wilson) appears to use a Glock 17.
In "Mr. Monk Goes to the Circus" (S02E04), Natasia Lovara (Lolita Davidovich; stunt double Shauna Diggins) fires a single shot from a revolver described as a "Ruger Casull" in .454 caliber, hitting her victim in the heart at a distance of 34 feet. The bullet actually goes right through the victim and lodges itself in a planter box behind him. The weapon the ninja holds appears to be a Ruger Blackhawk revolver, however, the Blackhawk does not come in a model that chambers the .454 Casull cartridge, as the Ruger Super Redhawk does.
Winchester Model 70
In "Mr. Monk and the Captain's Wife" (S02E14), Evan Coker (Daniel Goddard) guns down a tow truck driver with a single shot to the head from a long range position with a Winchester Model 70 rifle, which is described by Disher as a "Winchester bolt-action rifle" in .30-06 caliber.
