The following weapons were used in the film In the Electric Mist:




Det. Dave Robicheaux (Tommy Lee Jones) carries an M1911A1 as his sidearm throughout the film. Just like in the novel series.

SIG-Sauer P226

Murphy Doucet (Bernard Hocke) carries what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P226 (judging by the width of the grip) while working security.

Taurus Model 85

FBI Agent Rosie Gomez (Justina Machado) uses a Taurus Model 85 for her duty weapon. A revolver is anachronistic as the FBI hasn't issued revolvers in a number of years.

Remington 870

When Dave gets the news that his daughter ‎Alafair (Alana Locke) has been kidnapped, he gets a Remington 870 out of the toolbox of his truck and uses it at the end of the film.

Single Shot Shotgun

A Single Shot Shotgun is seen on the floor of Lou Girard's motel room.

Enfield Pattern 1853

When Dave is under the influence of LSD, he ends up stumbling into a Civil War camp after wrecking his truck. One of the Confederates is seen carrying a British 1853 Enfield. The film's title is the shortened title of the book In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead.

A cannon is seen in the background on the movie set where "White Doves" is filming. It may be a 10-pound Parrott Rifle.

Four of the actors in the film acted together in JFK. Tommy Lee Jones (Clay Shaw), Pruitt Taylor Vince (Lee Bowers), Gary Grubbs (Al Oser), Walter Breaux (Vernon Bundy). While it dealt with the JFK assassination it took place mostly in Louisiana also.
