Benedict's custom Dan Wesson Model 15 in Last Action Hero. I eventually got one and I love it!

Richie's (Sam Elliott) LAR Grizzly .45 magnum from Shakedown. Also for pure fun, the awesome weapons used by the inter-galactic exterminators in Critters.

It's gotta be Tackleberry's revolver from "Police Academy".

Never actually seen one, but after viewing "Die Hard 2", I'd give anything to have a Glock 7 [with the porcelain frame].

....but, failing that, my answer to the OP: Jesse Ventura's mini-gun from "Predator".

Anything and everything used by Burt Gummer in any of the Tremors films.

But specifically his Scout Rifle and Grizzly big bore .50, but alas, he had to send his ex- his H&K-91 when they broke up.

That man is my alter-ego. He even liked th Hawks, before they were good.

S&W Model 629. 44 Magnum 629

Maybe it was the cinematography, or the "do you feel lucky, punk" line, but the S&W Model 629. 44 Magnum 629 was pretty impressive, even more so for a non-revolver guy.

That was a 29; the 629 is stainless.

Everyone has already alluded to my favorites but I think for a diversity/plethora of weaponry (that really caught my eye as a kid) the movie "Magnum Force" definitely ranks among the best.

4 Smith & Wesson M76
5 Smith & Wesson Model 10

^- Yea, can we just have Burt Gummer's Wall of Glory?

Being specific, mine are:

For ficticious I agree, it has to be the rifles from Alien 2. Those were awesome! (still can't believe she blew all her ammo on the eggs!!!)

For real guns my vote goes to my favorite, the Beretta 92 in Lethal Weapon and Die hard. That gun was the star of Lethal Weapon.

Can we change our mind?

Good, after seeing 'Skyfall' today, my favorite movie weapon is the PPK/S .380 used by James Bond in the film, the grip functions as a palm print scanner, and keeps anyone but 007 from firing it.

So if only 007 can fire, wouldn't that mean that you're kinda sol?

You said weapon not gun so my favorites would be Lash Larues whip and Jim Bowies knife.

Yeah yeah I'm old.

So I guess 007 can't fire his gun with gloves on? Or if his palm is muddy, bloody, or wet?

I've always been a fan of the Green Hornet's gas gun. Even better, but less in the probability of real, the Shadow's ability to cloud mens' minds and become invisible seems pretty neat too.

Not the movies, but T.V.
I'll take a Sonny Crocket Bren Ten, if you please.

I forgot the Angry Cricket.

I like the Aliens gun better, but the Angry Cricket should be right near the top of the list.
