Boomtown was a television police crime drama set in Los Angeles that aired on NBC for two seasons from 2002 to 2003. In each episode of the series, the circumstances of a particular crime are seen from different points of view, which include those of the police, the criminals, the witnesses, and the attorneys. The series, whose cast included Donnie Wahlberg, Mykelti Williamson, and Neal McDonough, was created by Graham Yost, the writer/producer whose credits include Speed, Band of Brothers, The Pacific and who subsequently created the series Justified (several Boomtown cast members would make appearances in the latter series).
The following weapons were used in the television series Boomtown:
