Saw is a 2004 American horror film directed by James Wan and written by Wan and Leigh Whannell. It is the first installment in the Saw franchise (despite the fact that exists a short film with the same name, directed and starred by Whannell). The plot focuses on two men who awake to find themselves chained in a large dilapidated bathroom, with one being ordered to kill the other or his family will die. At the same time, the police, led by a detective David Tapp (Danny Glover), investigate a series of gruesome murders. All this is the plan of a serial killer, nicknamed Jigsaw, who has his own philosophy explaining all his actions. He believes that one who does not value life is not worthy of it. Saw was released in theaters in the United States on October 29, 2004, by Lionsgate Films, and a sequel, titled Saw II, was released in 2005.

The following weapons were used in the film Saw:



Beretta 92FS

After being suspended from duty because of an incident at a mannequin factory, David Tapp (Danny Glover) replaces his service pistol for a new personal Beretta 92FS. Hearing gunshots in the Gordon apartment that he has been watching, Tapp loads the gun and runs there, where he is forced to engage in a gunfight with Zep Hindle. When the criminal escapes, David goes in pursuit, reloading his gun on the run. In the sewer tunnel, Tapp accidentally shoots himself during the fight with Zep.

Beretta 92FS Inox

Detective Steven Sing (Ken Leung) carries a Beretta 92FS Inox as a service sidearm in the flashback. After figuring out the location of the killer's hideout, Sing loads the gun and sets off with a colleague. Steven pulls out the gun only to fire off a "Drill Chair" trap and save hostage Jeff Ridenhour (Ned Bellamy), since he is mostly armed with a shotgun. When the suspect escapes, Sing puts the gun away under his jacket and carries the shotgun again.

Smith & Wesson Model 686

A Smith & Wesson Model 686 is found lying on the floor next to the dead body in the room. An unknown person through a Panasonic RN305 recorder explains Lawrence Gordon's (Cary Elwes) task: he has to kill Adam if he wants to see his family again. A little later, Gordon finds a cartridge in his pocket. When Lawrence's nerves are running out, he inserts the round into the cylinder and shoots Adam in the shoulder, after which he leaves the gun on the floor.

Wilson Combat "Protector"

Zep Hindle (Michael Emerson) is armed with a two-tone Wilson Combat "Protector" throughout the film. He takes Diana (Makenzie Vega) and Alison Gordon (Monica Potter) hostage using the gun. Once released, Alison attacks Zep, temporarily takes possession of the gun, but Zep quickly takes it away and uses it in a shootout with David. Upon arriving in the bathroom, Zep is about to shoot Lawrence, but he fails. In the final scene, Adam Stanheight (Leigh Whannell) briefly grabs the gun lying around, but suddenly is disarmed. Like Gordon's revolver, the "Protector" remains in the bathroom after the events of the film, but is often absent in sequels.

Zastava CZ99

The Zastava CZ99 appears as Detective David Tapp's (Danny Glover) primary service weapon in the flashback. After locating the killer's hideout, the detective takes the holster and goes with his partner to the abandoned mannequin factory, where he fires it during the confrontation with the dangerous inhabitant.
