WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!

Detective Marv "Boz" Bozwick (Dan Petronijevic) holds a 2nd Gen Glock 17 in the opening scene, chasing pickpocket Benny Wrights (Chad Camilleri) in the subway. Detective Zeke Banks (Chris Rock), working undercover, commits a robbery at a motel with a 3rd Gen Glock 17. Many police officers and detectives, including Officer Pat Jones (Trevor Gretzky), Officer Grant (Nadine Roden), Officer Jeannie Lewis (Ali Johnson), Captain Angie Garza (Marisol Nichols), Detective Deborah Kraus (Edie Inksetter), Detective Lieutenant Tim O'Brien (Thomas Mitchell), Detective William Schenk (Max Minghella), Detective Drury (K.C. Collins) and Sergeant Morgey Silva (Dylan Roberts) are armed with pistols throughout the film. Noticing the open door to his apartment, Zeke pulls out his gun and slowly walks around it until he meets his father. At the order of Detective Fitch (Richard Zeppieri), the pawn shop owner (Peter Hoy) gives the gun from gun rack. In the flashback, Detective Zeke chases a criminal (Nick Alachiotis) with a 3rd Gen Glock until he gets shot. Zeke and William use guns during the chase and interrogation of drug seller Speez (Christopher Ramsay). In another flashback, Officer Peter Dunleavy (Patrick McManus) kills witness Charlie Emmerson with his service Glock to cover for his dirty cop accomplice. Captain Garza tries to open the safe door with her gun when a Pig Mask Man attacks her in the basement of the police station. The SWAT officers who arrived on William's call also carry pistols in holsters.
Remarkably, throughout the movie, Zeke constantly swaps the 2nd and 3rd generations of his Glock, which is probably a continuity error.
