Your favorite movie weapon?

I'm dating myself with my nomination:
1973
Day of the Jackal
The custom made sniper rifle that fit into a cane.
Looking fwd to hearing about your favorite "movie weapon".

I've made the thread title more literate. We are not your IPhone.

Style counts.

For actual weapons, It's a toss up between Al Pacino's shortened, modified FNC from Heat
http://www.imfdb.org/images/8/8e/Heat-FNC.jpg

And Micheal Dougles's Howdah pistol from Ghost and the Darkness
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-8ihVUgM-0d...s1600/Gd29.jpg

For sci-fi/fantasy...I'll take the Zorg pod weapon

SciFi: Pulse rifles in Aliens, in reality built on Thompson frames, with 12ga pump shotgun action under the "pulse gun" main barrel.

Non SciFi: Indiana Jones' 1917 S&W from Raiders of the Lost Ark, since I just loved that scene.

My favorite not so realistic gun is the double Desert Eagle from The Green Hornet.

For more normal guns it has to be the Beretta 92 that is in many movies but it really caught my eye in The Boondock Saints. When I saw it in that movie I had to have one. I love it....

Funny thing is that I was just reading on IMFDB that in some scenes the double Desert Eagle is just a Beretta 92 with a slide on each side of the 92's slide.

Jack Bauer's HK USP9! It has capacity measured in crap tons. Magazines are obviously light enough to carry 30 or more. It becomes accurate as a death ray if you close one eye. And, when empty, it's polymer frame will knock someone out faster than slamming them over the head with a fire extinguisher!

I've always been a fan of the Barrett 50cal. many movies have it, the "Shooter" for example.

Another one is the Vector SMG from the new Resident Evil movie. I held it in real life and I was sold! Dual-wield Vectors would be the sweetest! Takes 30rd Glock mags and has virtually no recoil

Callahan Fullbore with Autolock (Jane's "Vera" from Serenity/Firefly).

And less than 6 degrees away: The 12 gauge pump from Mothman. It was old and ugly, but it shot dozens of rounds without reloading, and you didn't even need to pump it between shots if you didn't want to.

If you recall, there were lots of spy movies in the 1960s. The best secret agent was James Bond. Naturally that meant there was a Second Best Secret Agent:

I'm not sure that link will work because I do not know of these things. My second favorite is the Lewis Gun in some Lee Marvin movie. A third favorite (why stop at one?) is the Savage Model 99 in Death Hunt, also a Lee Marvin movie, based on a true story and is correct for the story.
