Miss Congeniality is a 2000 comedy starring Sandra Bullock as Gracie Hart, an FBI agent who undergoes an extreme makeover in order to go undercover as a contestant in the Miss United States beauty pageant. Bullock would return as Gracie in the 2005 sequel Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous.

The following weapons were used in the film Miss Congeniality:



Glock 26

FBI Special Agent Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) carries a Glock 26 throughout the film. She pulls it from an ankle holster and holds it on a mobster during the sting at the beginning of the film. Later, while undercover at the Miss United States pageant, she pulls it from her hip holster and points it at Victor Melling (Michael Caine). Humorously, Sandra Bullock also carried a Glock 26 in The Heat, where she again played an FBI agent. The Glock 26 is also not used by the FBI, who would have been using .40-caliber full sized Glocks at the time when both films were made.

Glock 17

Gracie carries what appears to be a full-size Glock 17 as her on-duty sidearm. It's briefly glimpsed when she is discussing the situation at FBI headquarters. Other agents are seen carrying the Glock as well.
