Training Day (2001)
Training Day is a 2001 American crime thriller that follows Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke), a rookie LAPD officer who is eager to begin his first day in an elite vice unit headed up by Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington), a charismatic detective who has unorthodox methods of solving cases. The film was directed by Antoine Fuqua from a screenplay written by David Ayer. Denzel Washington would receive the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in the film. In 2017, a television series adaptation, serving as the sequel to the film, premiered in the US on CBS and was produced by Fuqua and Jerry Bruckheimer. Training Day also marked the first of Fuqua's four collaborations with Denzel Washington.
The following weapons were used in the film Training Day:
Smith & Wesson 4506
Detective Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington) carries two Smith & Wesson 4506-1 pistols throughout the film. .45 ACP handguns were approved for LAPD carry after the infamous North Hollywood shootout. In one scene, where Alonzo and Jake come under fire from a gang of Crips while serving a warrant in the Imperial Courts neighborhood of Watts, he fires both weapons simultaneously, holding one sideways "gangsta"-style. Two Smith & Wesson 4506s from this film would later be re-used by Michael Chiklis for the series The Shield.
Officer Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) carries the LAPD standard-issue Beretta 92FS throughout the film. Much like Jake himself, the Beretta 92FS has a history of reliability, accuracy and ruggedness. For a "by the books" man like Jake, the Beretta 92FS is a great choice. The Beretta 92FS also appears in the hands of several other characters throughout the film, including uniformed LAPD officers and some of the Crips who fire at Alonzo and Jake in Watts.
Beretta 92FS Inox
The stainless Beretta 92FS Inox appears several times in the film. Tim (Nick Chinlund), one of the men in Alonzo's unit, is seen carrying one during the raid on the house of Roger (Scott Glenn). Smiley (Cliff Curtis) also has one, which he shows off to Jake in a not-so-subtle attempt at intimidation.
Mark (Jaime Gomez), one of the men in Alonzo's unit, carries a second generation Glock 17. When Jake confronts Alonzo at his girlfriend's apartment, Alonzo hands over a Glock 17 with a stainless slide. Some of the Crip gangbangers in the shootout in Watts also carry Glock 17s. They can be identified as Second Gen by the lack of rails or finger grooves.
The smaller Glock 19 also appears several times in the film. When Alonzo and Jake arrest the wheelchair-bound drug dealer Blue (Snoop Dogg), they confiscate a Glock 19 from him. Paul (Dr. Dre), one of the men in Alonzo's unit, also carries a Glock 19 which he uses to threaten Jake during the standoff in Roger's house. Finally, some of the Crips in Watts are also seen with Glock 19s.
Intratec TEC-38 Over Under Pocket Pistol
When Alonzo and his men raid Roger's house, Roger (Scott Glenn) is seen dropping what appear to be two Intratec TEC-38 Over Under Pocket Pistols (aka Derringers) that he had concealed in the newspaper he was reading.
Alonzo fires a Colt M1911A1-type pistol (specific make unknown) at Jake after Jake jumps onto the hood of his car when he's trying to drive off with the money. Jake later takes this pistol and points it at Alonzo, shooting him when he tries to take Bone's Smith & Wesson Model 66.
Smith & Wesson Model 66 Snub Nose
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Paul (Dr. Dre) carries a Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine gun (with Navy trigger group) during the raid on Roger's house. It seems to be attached to his ballistic vest with some kind of lanyard. The MP5A3 used in this film was an airsoft replica made by Tokyo Marui, likely because Dr. Dre has a criminal record in real life and the armorer was unable to secure the necessary permit for him to hold a real NFA weapon.
Mossberg 500 Cruiser
A Mossberg 500 Cruiser shotgun is used by Jake during the raid on Roger's house. Alonzo later asks Jake to shoot Roger with this weapon, and when Jake refuses, Alonzo takes the Mossberg and kills Roger himself. In real life, the LAPD would have been issued a Mossberg 500 Cruiser with a heat-shield.
When Jake confronts Alonzo at his girlfriend's apartment and disarms him of all his pistols, Alonzo distracts Jake and then reaches under his bed for a Remington 870 with sawed-off stock, heat-shield, extended magazine tube and a Mark 1 bayonet mount. Earlier in the film, when Alonzo and Jake drive past the scene of a major drug bust, an LAPD officer can be seen pointing a standard model Remington 870 at several Latino gangbangers.
Remington 870 Field Gun
When Jake returns to the Imperial Courts at night, he hears the racking action of a pump shotgun. A gang member is then seen on the roof with what appears to be a long barreled model of the Remington 870.
Rifles & Carbines
The Russian mafia hit squad at the end of the film all carry AKMSU carbines that are used in an ambush. When Jake returns to the Imperial Courts at night, a gang member on the roof is seen armed with what appears to be an AKMSU and makes threats saying "What you doing on the block, Rookie?" and "You know you don't belong here".
