Heather Gummer uses an M8 Pyrotechnic Flare pistol to shoot the Graboid in the mouth before Burt kills it with the 8 Gauge. You can even see it on the wall in one of your caps. - Gunmaster45

Sad thing is: I know someone with that many guns- 02:05, 26 June 2009 (UTC) (S&Wshooter)
Why is that sad? Don't even ask how many guns I own ;)........ MoviePropMaster2008 06:49, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

The guns that Burt asks heather if he should take is not the elephant gun it is another one.

I've watched this movie many times (I love the first three and the short-lived one season series, there was some weird 19th Century western 4th one I didn't bother to watch) but I don't recall ever seeing a Colt 1860 in it. The revolver that Earl takes from the glove box of his Jeep pickup and carries with him until attacked on horseback by a Graboid is clearly a Colt Model 1873 SAA. Val drops Edgar's .30-30 in these scenes, as mentioned, after emptying the magazine. All but one shot is unaimed and misses, the one aimed shot--the first one--severs one of the tongues/tenacles of the Graboid that has grabbed the horse (belonging to Walter Chang) that Earl was riding.

How many guns DO you own, MPM2008? Any other answer other than "too damn many to count" is incorrect-S&Wshooter 04:33, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
on Personal guns, I did an audit for insurance purposes in 1997, including junk, it was around 5100. That was back in 1997. I've picked up quite a few (perhaps an additional 200-300) or so since then. It's hard because some are bulk buys, i.e. a trunk load full of beater guns - either personal collections or police trade ins - about 12 will be crap (single shot breach load .22s) and then 6-7 will be good (870 pumps, 1100s) and then perhaps 5 will be really good (Glock 17s, Used P220s, M1911s, etc.) I did pick up a bunch from one inheritance (dead uncle) and another inheritance (A neighbor who was a former D.A.K. and Selous Scout who had no heirs left me his collection) which means that it pays to be the kid most interested in guns and history who spends afternoons talking with the nice but weird old neighbor on the porch about wars past ;) Most of the guys I know own at least 100 firearms. I know very few people who own less than fifty. If you don't know anyone with more than fifty in their collection, then you're hanging around the wrong people. For the record, since I was 21 I had more guns than the Gummers did in their basement, but that's just me. MoviePropMaster2008 06:05, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Damn, that's alot of guns. I myself have about 14, which I believe is pretty good for someone who has no job and isn't even through with high school, but I believe one of my relatives has around a hundred-S&Wshooter
So (and this is a question I commonly ask the kids on this site) how do you own 14 guns when you're not out of High school yet? I figure parents buy them, but you don't technically OWN them (your parents do) until you turn 18. I find it interesting how many members aren't even old enough to legally purchase their own firearms. MoviePropMaster2008 08:00, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, I inherited a bunch of them.My Grandfather used to sell guns as a side job and he ended up with a lot of them, so he let me and my cousin have a few (I got the better ones because my cousin isn't knowledgeable about guns but I am). I also have my other (recently late) Grandfather's hunting rifle, my Great Grandfather's double barreled shotgun (the only gun I own that I don't shoot, but only because it is broken) and another double gun I got from a late family friend. I bought or was given the rest of them as gifts from my father-S&Wshooter 18:13, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Wow that's alot of guns. At one time I had thirty and I had run out of room in my safe.I had them stacked in corners in my "rec room". So I did some serious culling and got it down to fifteen. Traded a few for pieces I liked, sold the others. I creeped back up to twenty a few months ago. Since then I've traded a couple for a couple revolvers I liked and I'm down to seventeen. For me it's a question of space. I have to be brutal (on myself) and make sure that they are guns that I really want. For example my handguns are now limited to 38/357, 9mm and 22LR. There was a time I owned handguns in seven different calibers. It was too much for me. But I do like buying and trading guns. --Jcordell 07:07, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

I wish we can have more armorers here or better, or better yet, all of them here. It'll save us a hell of a time IDing guns Excalibur01


Unfortunately unless you get the Collector's Special Edition DVD or the Blu-Ray, you're stuck with a bad quality 4x3 full screen version that was letterboxed to "look like Widescreen" except it isn't. The initial DVD version of this film was very poor. I look forward to getting a decent high res version of this film soon. MoviePropMaster2008 07:01, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Yeah sorry for the bad quality. It was the best I could find Excalibur01


If you get the Tremors "Attack Pack", the movie and Tremors 2 will finally be in 16 x 9 anamorphic! Not a bad deal! Plus, is there something wrong with the site? It's taking me forever to even access pages, much less upload pics. --Ben41 00:37, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah there are site problems right now. http://www.imfdb.org/forum/showthread.php?t=937 --Predator20 00:52, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Gummers' Wall of Guns Trivia

If you look at the wall of guns, you can see that they have many World War 2 weapons (and some modern and before 1900 weapons), meaning that their ancestors probably collected weapons. - Kenny99 05:49, 24 March 2010 (UTC)


Was the rifle they found with Edgar really an 1892? I don't believe they were offered in .30-30. I assumed it was an 1894. -SasquatchJim.

  • It's an Winchester 1892, you can tell by the screws on the side of the receiver in the shot with Edgar dead on the power lines. It's later referred to as a .30-30, but the rifle is an 1892. It's possible that the mistake is made by the character, not by the script. It wasn't Val's rifle, so he wasn't necessarily familiar with it, and the 94 and 92 are very similar at a glance. --DOHC Holiday 18:47, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Ah, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. Although, it was Heather that said it, not Val. But that's neither here nor there. -SJ

Smith and Wesson Model 19

Even though the image is blurry, the gun Fred Ward is using appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 27 .357 Magnum with a 3 1/2 inch barrel.

I agree. Change made.--Jcordell 18:12, 7 February 2012 (CST)

TBD small black pistol

It's a Browning Model 10/71. Great little (actually very large by todays standards) 7 shot pistol chambered in 380ACP.
