Pure Luck is the US adventure comedy remake of the French film La chèvre. The 1991 film was directed by Nadia Tass and stared Martin Short and Danny Glover. Valerie Highsmith, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, is known for her extremely bad luck. When she disappeared in Mexico, the only way to find her is to send similar unlucky person to trace her whereabouts. Eugene Proctor (Short), Mr. Highsmith's employee, is such a man.

The following weapons were used in the film Pure Luck:

A Beretta 92FS is the personal handgun of Raymond Campanella (Danny Glover). In several scenes, his pistol switches to M1911A1 and back again due to continuity error. In one scene a Mexican police detective carries a Beretta (it is seen only in the trailer).
