Savages is a 2012 narco-thriller directed by Oliver Stone and based on the novel of the same name by Don Winslow (who co-wrote the screenplay and was also the author of The Life and Death of Bobby Z). The film follows two successful marijuana-dealing friends: Chon (Taylor Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL, and Ben (Aaron Johnson), a UC Berkley graduate who must fight back against the Baja Cartel, run by Elena La Reina (Salma Hayek) and her enforcer Lado (Benicio del Toro), who have kidnapped their girlfriend O (Blake Lively) in order to push them out of the business.
The following weapons were used in the film Savages:

At the film's beginning, Chon (Taylor Kitsch) is seen spinning the cylinder of a Ruger LCR. The novel states that he pulls out a ".38" when the Cartel asks him if he has a gun on hand. While the exact make and model of his sidearm is not described in the novel, it could possibly be an LCR, since the LCR comes in .357 Magnum and .38 Special.
Chon also is seen holding what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P232.
