The gun that Turner takes from the other cop looks like it could be a Smith & Wesson Model 65, as does her first gun in some of the pictures. --Ruzhyo 15:40, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Well since neither gun is stainless I'll go with Model 13. - Kooshmeister 10:54 4 2010

Whoops. Not enough caffine makes my eyes not work. Good catch.--Ruzhyo 16:04, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

The NYPD never authorized the S&W Model 13 for officers. The NYPD never authorized .357 magnum. The S&W Model 10 Heavy Barrrel in 38 special was authorized. In the late eighties a New York City uniformed officer would have been carrying either the Model 10, Model 64, or the Ruger Police Six. I made the correction. Clancey Brown's character using a S&W Model 66 is nothingmore than the filmakers wanting him to have a "cool" revolver. In reality he probably would have been carrying either a Model 64/10 with 2" barrel or with a 3" barrel. Personally I think that a 3" Model 10/64 would have been very impressive looking, but what do I know. --Jcordell 20:00, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

The Model 66 used by Clancy was a wild ass guess by me. It's better than leaving it as unknown. I added the distant shot of the gun back on the page, not sure who took it off. --Predator20 21:04, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

It wasn't me. I suppose if you really want to fit the Model 66 into the storyline it could be argued the Brown's character got a special waiver to carry the Model 66 along with strict orders that he could only carry the department 38 special load in it. I've read that some officers with political pull could get the occassional official waiver. Don't know how accurate that info is, but once again what the hell? --Jcordell 21:10, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Unknown pistol

I finally watched this the other day. As for the unidentified pistol, S&W 3913? --funkychinaman 18:08, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

I haven't seen this in a long time. I remember it being alright, though. As for the unknown gun, hell, I'd say that guess is as good as any. StanTheMan 18:36, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
I haven't seen this film, but from the screencap provided it looks like either a stainless S&W pistol or a Kahr Arms pistol, however, I'm not sure if Kahr Arms existed in 1989. -Anonymous
- I don't think they did.. Not sure. The Smith might be a decent possibility though. Since almost all the other guns in the movie are Smiths, it would be a good tie-in. Not that that means anything, but it's a thought. StanTheMan 14:45, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
