Child's Play is a 1988 US horror film written by Don Mancini and directed by Tom Holland (Fatal Beauty). The film centers around a dying serial killer who transfers his soul into a children's doll, which comes to call himself "Chucky". When the doll is bought by an unsuspecting single mother for her son, "Chucky" then continues the serial killer's ways. The cast included Catherine Hicks, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent and Brad Dourif. The box office success of Child's Play would spawn the Chucky series of films.

The following weapons were used in the film Child's Play:



Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose

While being chased by Detective Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon) at the beginning of the film, Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif), AKA the 'Lakeshore Strangler', uses a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose to shoot at him several times.

Smith & Wesson Model 10HB

Detective Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 10 heavy barrel as his sidearm. He uses it while chasing Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif) at the film's opening. He also uses it to shoot at Chucky when he tries to kill him after the car crash. Karen Barclay (Catherine Hicks) later gets a hold of it and uses it at the film's conclusion.

Ruger Blackhawk

Eddie Caputo (Neil Giuntoli) keeps a stainless steel Ruger Blackhawk with a 4 and 5/8 inch barrel on his nightstand while he is sleeping. He later takes it up after hearing Chucky move around in the house and uses it while checking it for intruders. He aims the Blackhawk at Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), but doesn't pull the trigger (proving that even a scumbag like Eddie won't shoot an innocent kid).

Beretta 84 Cheetah

Detective Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon) gives his backup gun, a Beretta Cheetah, to Karen Barclay (Catherine Hicks) for protection. She uses it to shoot Chucky once in the shoulder before it jams, something which Chucky teases her for (rightfully so, what kind of cop carries a backup gun that jams after one shot? Although to be fair to Mike, Karen may have simply limp-wristed it).

It's obviously a Beretta Cheetah, but the exact caliber and model are unclear, though given its round trigger guard, the gun is probably a first model Beretta 84. It could possibly be a Beretta 81 in .32 ACP, but the .380 Model 84 is far more common (especially in the states). It wouldn't be an 81BB or an 84BB because there aren't enough slide serrations. It appears to have a double stack magazine bulge near the grips, so it also wouldn't be a single stack Cheetah like a Model 85 or 82.

Mike also may have swapped out the factory glossy plastic grips with aftermarket rubber ones, judging by the dull texture.
The Beretta Cheetah jamming after only one shot. Note the straight takedown lever on the right hand side of the frame, further identifying this as a Cheetah, not a Model 70. Considering how she does not seem to be experienced with firearms, her grip really isn't too bad.
