    Question Just wondering if any pros here would be able to ID handgun & holster for me?

    123
    These are screen shots taken from the movie Once Upon A Time in Mexico.

    What gun is this?



    Also what sort of shoulder holster is this?




    Thanks in advance~

    The holster is based on a black Galco Miami Classic, but they've substituted a second holster for the magazine carrier (very easy to do). I can't identify the pistol from those shots, though.

    I've seen this movie! LOL Looks like a Llama something or other? May be just a cheap, un-authentic prop also?

    The grip on the semiauto reminds me of a Ruger, but the supressor on the revolver is what caught my attention. With the gap at the cylinder, is this practical? (Not that it has to be in Hollywood.)

    The pistol is a Ruger P series pistol. It can be identified by the magazine release.

    Yeah, I was thinking Ruger P85, but wasn't sure.

    Suppressors on revolvers generally do not work, but Navy Spec Ops supposedly had some suppressed S&W M66s made up during Vietnam, with a very tight barrel-cylinder gap. They were evidently pretty quiet, but could only fire a few shots before carbon buildup prevented the cylinder from turning.

    Even if there were some fix for the cylinder gap, the size of that suppressor is way too small. And, as required by the Hollywood Rules of Gunhandling, her finger is inside the trigger guard. Hope she doesn't sneeze, or her androgynous friend is going to have a serious case of neck-burn.

    Thanks Milquetoast. The trigger finger pictures bug me every time I see them, but I hate to be the one commenting on it all of the time.

    And hey, be careful with those $5 words; this is a "gun nut" board afterall!

    Wow thanks for all your help guys!
    Ive looked up some pictures of Ruger P Series myself and i think it's the right one... the handle looked very much the same as pictured.
