Saw is a 2004 American horror film directed by James Wan and written by Wan and Leigh Whannell. It is the first installment in the Saw franchise (despite the fact that exists a short film with the same name, directed and starred by Whannell). The plot focuses on two men who awake to find themselves chained in a large dilapidated bathroom, with one being ordered to kill the other or his family will die. At the same time, the police, led by a detective David Tapp (Danny Glover), investigate a series of gruesome murders. All this is the plan of a serial killer, nicknamed Jigsaw, who has his own philosophy explaining all his actions. He believes that one who does not value life is not worthy of it. Saw was released in theaters in the United States on October 29, 2004, by Lionsgate Films, and a sequel, titled Saw II, was released in 2005.
The following weapons were used in the film Saw:
After being suspended from duty because of an incident at a mannequin factory, David Tapp (Danny Glover) replaces his service pistol for a new personal Beretta 92FS. Hearing gunshots in the Gordon apartment that he has been watching, Tapp loads the gun and runs there, where he is forced to engage in a gunfight with Zep Hindle. When the criminal escapes, David goes in pursuit, reloading his gun on the run. In the sewer tunnel, Tapp accidentally shoots himself during the fight with Zep.
Beretta 92FS Inox
Detective Steven Sing (Ken Leung) carries a Beretta 92FS Inox as a service sidearm in the flashback. After figuring out the location of the killer's hideout, Sing loads the gun and sets off with a colleague. Steven pulls out the gun only to fire off a "Drill Chair" trap and save hostage Jeff Ridenhour (Ned Bellamy), since he is mostly armed with a shotgun. When the suspect escapes, Sing puts the gun away under his jacket and rearms himself with the shotgun.
Smith & Wesson Model 686
A Smith & Wesson Model 686 is found lying on the floor next to the dead body (Tobin Bell) in the room. An unknown person through a Panasonic RN305 recorder explains Lawrence Gordon's (Cary Elwes) task: he has to kill Adam if he wants to see his family again. A little later, Gordon finds a bullet in his pocket. When Lawrence's nerves are running out, he inserts a bullet into the cylinder and shoots Adam in the shoulder, after which he leaves the gun on the floor.
Wilson Combat "Protector"
Zep Hindle (Michael Emerson) is armed with a two-tone Wilson Combat "Protector" throughout the film. He threatens Diana (Makenzie Vega) and Alison Gordon (Monica Potter) with a gun, forcing them to talk on the phone. Once released, Alison attacks Zep, temporarily taking possession of the gun. After taking the gun away by force, Zep gets into a gunfight with David, who comes to the rescue. Taking advantage of the situation, Zep escapes from the apartment and exchanges gunfire with the former detective in the sewer tunnel. Due to a continuity error, in one scene, Tapp's Beretta turns into a "Protector". Upon arriving in the bathroom, Zep is about to shoot Lawrence, but he fails. In the final scene, Adam Stanheight (Leigh Whannell) briefly grabs the gun lying around but a suddenly standing up "dead" man shocked by a remote. Like Gordon's revolver, the "Protector" stays in the bathroom after the events of the film.
The Zastava CZ99 appears as Detective David Tapp's (Danny Glover) primary service weapon in the flashback. At first, the gun lies holstered on the table while Tapp searches for evidence on the tape. After locating the killer's hideout, the detective takes the holster and goes with his partner to the abandoned mannequin factory, where he uses the gun during the raid and confrontation with the dangerous inhabitant.
Double Barreled Shotguns
While pursuing Jigsaw killer, Detective Sing (Ken Leung) fails to notice the thin trip wire in the hallway and activates a trap of four Double Barreled Shotguns hanging with barrels down, mounted on the archway above him.
Ithaca 37 Deer Slayer Police Special
During the mannequin factory raid in the flashback, Detective Steven Sing (Ken Leung) is mostly armed with a Ithaca 37 Deer Slayer Police Special shotgun. He orders the hooded killer to surrender, but when he activates the "Drill Chair" trap, Steven throws the shotgun to Detective Tapp (Danny Glover) to save hostage Jeff Ridenhour (Ned Bellamy). In pursuit of the fleeing suspect, Sing takes the shotgun from his wounded partner and chases the fugitive down the hallway, managin to shoot him in the back.
When the camera zooms in on one of the quadruple shotgun's triggers, the gun turns into a Winchester 1300 due a continuity error.
At the police station, a police officer can be seen carrying a holster with an almost invisible pistol. Several of Sing and Tapp's colleagues leaving the police station after a workday can also be seen with holstered pistols.
