    More recently, I finally saw Insomnia. Not too bad, but the gun thing really irritated me:

    1) Am I wrong to believe the shell they waved around and passed as a 9mm was actually a .45acp?

    2) Since when the Walther is 9mm? The modern ones are .380 acp, AFAIK.

    :confused:

    Pretty good movie. Robin Williams can really pull off the evil-dude role really well.

    The Walther PP/PPK series is chambered for the .380 round. However, this caliber is also known as the 9mm kurz (9mm short). I believe that they were originally chambered in 7.65mm/.32 cal

    Thanks CAnonneer for starting this thread. I actually have a question regarding this movie also.

    What is Al Pacino's gun? At first it looked like a blued 1911, with a non-serrated flat topstrap. But then When he points the gun at Robin Williams, theres a safety on the slide. So, I'm thinking some sort of full-size S&W autoloader. Any ideas what it is?

    I enjoyed the pistol, they did goof pretty good with the 9mm casing thing.

    S&W 745 or 945 perhaps?
