Get Shorty is the 1995 feature film adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name. Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black), the film stars John Travolta as Chili Palmer, a Miami loan shark asked to collect a debt from a Hollywood producer, and subsequently pitches a movie idea based on his life. Travolta would return as Palmer in the 2005 sequel Be Cool. In 2017, the novel would be adapted as a television series that premiered on the premium cable channel EPIX.

The following weapons were used in the film Get Shorty (1995):


Walther PPK

Ray "Bones" Barboni (Dennis Farina) uses a Walther PPK when he goes to Chili Palmer's office in Miami to shoot him.

AMT Backup

Ray Bones (Dennis Farina) uses a AMT Backup to shoot Ronnie Wingate, then places the gun in the hand of Harry Zimm (Gene Hackman), who is blamed for the shooting. When Ronnie (Jon Gries) realizes too late that his trusty Smith & Wesson Model 67 is in his belt, while Ray's is in his hand, he tries to disconcert Ray by referring to Ray's as a "Wop 9 ... the Fiat of guns, always jammin' on you at the wrong time," to which Ray responds by shooting him four times with the AMT.

Colt Gold Cup National Match

Bo Catlett (Delroy Lindo) uses a Colt Gold Cup National Match during the film (N.B. In the book, the weapon Ronnie shows off, which Bo later "borrows" to shoot Yayo and threaten Chili, is a long-slide AMT Hardballer).

Desert Eagle

Martin Weir (Danny DeVito) fires a stainless Desert Eagle with a scope attachment in Chili's film, constantly pressing the magazine release instead of the trigger. The technical consultant, Bear (James Gandolfini), takes it from him and looks at it.

Colt Detective Special

Chili Palmer (John Travolta) fires back at Ray Bones with a third-generation Colt Detective Special, kept inside his desk (in the book, Chili buys a revolver after punching Bones, from a Cuban who describes it as "the famous Smit and Wayson Model treinta y ocho.")
