Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead is a 1995 crime/action movie directed by Gary Fleder (Kiss the Girls) and starring Andy Garcia as Jimmy "The Saint" Tosnia, a small time gangster attempting to go legit and leave the criminal world behind him. With his business failing, Jimmy is given a chance to clear his debt by a local crime lord "The Man With The Plan" (Christopher Walken), whom Tosnia owes money, by performing a service for him. To this aim, Tosnia recruits four helpers: "Pieces" Olden (Christopher Lloyd), Francis "Big Bear Franchise" Chiser (William Forsythe), Earl "Easy Wind" Denton (Bill Nunn) and "Critical" Bill Dolittle (Treat Williams). When the "job" is botched, the five members are faced with the lethal consequences of their failure in the form of the deadly assassin Mr. Shhh (Steve Buscemi).

The following weapons were used in the film Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead:



One of the thugs at Baby Sinister's (Glenn Plummer) club is armed with a M1911 with a nickel finish. Due to the lack of screentime it's almost impossible to ascertain the exact model.

Colt MK IV Series 70, Nickel finish - .45 ACP

Beretta 92FS Inox

The assassin Mr. Shhh (Steve Buscemi) takes a Beretta 92FS Inox from "Baby Sinister" and uses it to dispatch several of his henchmen at the latter's club.

Smith & Wesson 669

In a scene in "Critical" Bill Dolittle (Treat Williams) apartment he hands Tosnia a S&W 669.

Smith & Wesson Model 610 (probable)

"Pieces" Olden (Christopher Lloyd) carries what appears to be a S&W Model 610 with a 6.5" Barrel. Due to the rainy and dark conditions, plus the camera never properly shows the weapon, it is hard to properly identify the weapon.

Mossberg shotgun

"Critical" Bill (Treat Williams) uses a Mossberg shotgun variant with vent rib and attached laser. He uses it against Mr. Shhh in a climactic showdown where the now famous quote "I Am Godzilla, you are Japan" is uttered.

Note the vent rib and laser "hump".
