Fierce Creatures (1997)

Fierce Creatures is a 1997 comedy directed by Robert Young and Fred Schepisi starring John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline and Michael Palin. It is the spiritual sequel to 1988's A Fish Called Wanda, reuniting most of the cast members, although playing all new characters with a completely unrelated story.

The following weapons were used in the film Fierce Creatures:

Smith & Wesson Model 10HB

Rollo Lee (John Cleese) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 10HB in the film. This is likely his service weapon after twenty years on the Royal Hong Kong Police Force.

Remington Model 700

The Marwood Zoo keeps at least a pair of Remington Model 700 rifles on hand to deal with the animals if necessary. Hugh Primates (Richard Ridings) takes one with a scope, and Rollo takes another without a scope.

Rollo jokes that the sights are off, as he can't seem to hit any of the zoo keepers he was aiming for.
Rollo casually levels the Remington, causing Pip (played by Cleese's daughter Cynthia) to dive to the ground.

Single Barreled Shotgun

The zoo also keeps a Single Barreled Shotgun on hand, which Ant Keeper (Michael Percival) takes. He later hands it off to Cub Felines (Carey Lowell).

Beretta M1934

The zoo also keep a Beretta M1934 on hand, incorrectly described by Adrian "Bugsy" Malone (Michael Palin) as a "7.65 Beretta 34." (Beretta 34s are chambered in .380, Beretta 35s in 7.65mm/.32 ACP.) Vince McCain (Kevin Kline) takes it to try to shoot Bugsy, who later picks it up. Rollo picks it up as well.

Unknown rifle

Rollo grabs another bolt-action rifle from the zoo armory, but in a continuity error, it was later replaced with Hugh Primates' Remington Model 700.

The black accents on the stock indicate this is not the same rifle as above. It's also clear there's no ammunition in the rifle.
