According to many sources, including Michael Mann, the Producer/Director of the film, and a number of talented people able to "lift" the serial number prefix at HKPRO . . . he uses a Full Size USP 45. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Re: What pistol does Tom Cruise use in \'Collateral\'

Yeah, but when he shoots Daniel the Jazz Player in the club, he used a silencer, thus my belief it was a Tac. Plus, he shoots the Jazz Player three times in the forhead. If he did that with a HKUSPF45, there would not be anything left on his neck. That's why I thought it wasen't a .45 ACP.

Anybody else have an opinion?

It's Hollywood, man. They're so good they don't need threaded barrels to get silencers, and heads stay intact if they want them to. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

This was not HK. To me it looked exactly like .22lr Ruger with integrated silencer (don't remember model designation).

when he shoots the jazz player, he was using a silenced 22, Ruger I think. It's in some of the photos/posters for the movie, but for the most of it, he's using the USP. at the end, I believe he is using the guard's S&W.

haha, beat me to it, i think it was a ruger mark ii.
my co-worker has one of these that he uses on his farm.
it's pretty neat, he bought a crimson trace laser grip for it as well.

Alley and most of the time: HK USP 45 Full-Size
Jazz Club: Ruger Mark II (Supressed .22)
End Scene: Stolen guard's S&W (possibly a 4506 or other varient)

That's the list.

I recommend it, I love his disarm double tap then triple tap early in the movie. I wish I could be cool like that.

This movie is Highly recommanded for:

1. H&K USP (c,t,exp,elite,mk) owners.
2. People who lived in Los Angeles
3. who drove a cab


These days, i am shopping for a magazine holster/pouch after I saw this movie.

Man, he is so awsome when he was killing Peter Lim inside the club. He was reloading the USP within 2.5 sec!

Did anyone ever find out what holster he's using? I want one like that, but for a USP C. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

mazambique?

never heard of that,

normally at work, we train this way, two to the chest, one to the head. we call it the body armor drill, tac tac to the chest, subject doesn't go down right away, one to the head. but we just do it all at once anyways. if you give me a reason to shoot you, we're just going to take you out.

The Mozambique technique is the original name for this but was later developed into "The body armor drill" in LE circles.

On the holster issue I clicked on this thread hoping someone would have solved that mystery by now too but no such luck.

hrm...I always heard it called the "triple tap", but then again I am not LE, so I am free to use such crazy terms

Oh, ok. I thought it was chest-head then chest that Vincent did on Collateral.

i always assumed his holster was a stunt prop. if not, it's one of the best paddle holsters around. the damn thing is stationary through all of the high speed presentations without the aid of a belt.

Do they make a belt holster like the one Cruise wears? He's short (5/'6?) and he conceals the full-size USP just fine.
