Of all the weapons in the vast Soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947, more commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle, a weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple nine pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood, it doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It will fire whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy even a child could use it, and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars.
Yuri Orlov, Lord of War

God made men. Sam Colt made men equal.
—Popular saying referring to the Colt Single Action Army, or "Peacemaker"

Finally, the close-up, last resort. The one that Colt got right. A hundred years and four wars old, and those for the United States alone. Its replacement proved its worth by immediately going wrong. Seven in the magazine and one in the chamber, half the capacity of modern handguns - but eight fat forty-fives, with twice the impact, half the recoil of nine-millimeter rounds. All you have to do is put them where you want them.
Frank Castle, The Punisher MAX, extolling the virtues of the venerable M1911

The Glock 17: Preferred Weapon of Choice of the NYPD, US Air Force and bad fuckers the world over.
Nidge, Love/Hate

I know what you're thinking, punk. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, I've forgotten myself in all this excitement. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, 'punk?'
Detective Harry Callahan, Dirty Harry

Major Carter: This weapon is called a P90. It carries a fifty-round top-loading magazine of teflon-coated ordnance, with a cyclical rate of fire of nine-hundred rounds per minute.
(after a demonstration)
Colonel O'Neill: This (lifting a staff weapon) is a weapon of terror. It is made to intimidate your enemy. (tosses it away, lifts up his P90) This is a weapon of war. It is made to kill your enemy.
Major Carter: And it's capable of doing so effectively at five times the range I just demonstrated.
Colonel O'Neill: We've used it to win about every skirmish we've had with the Goa'uld and the Jaffa who serve them. Those of you who've gone up against us and survived... and you know who you are... you know what I'm talking about.
Colonel Jack O'Neill, Stargate SG-1

This is my rifle. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.
Sergeant Hartman, Full Metal Jacket

I am Heavy Weapons Guy. And this... is my weapon. She weighs 150 kilograms and fires $200 custom-tooled cartridges at 10,000 rounds per minute. It costs 400,000 dollars to fire this weapon...for 12 seconds.
The Heavy, Team Fortress 2

Sol: What's that?
Vincent: Haha! This, is a shotgun, Sol!
Sol: It's a fucking anti-aircraft gun, Vincent!

In my opinion, the M1 Rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.
General George S Patton, on the M1 Garand

Alright, you primitive screwheads, listen up. You see this? my BOOMSTICK!! It's a 12-gauge double barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right-this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right, shop smart, shop S-Mart. YOU GOT THAT??

Walther PPK, 7.65 millimeter. Only three men I know use such a gun. I believe I've killed two of them.
Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky, Goldeneye

AK-47 — the very best there is! When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfucker in the room... accept no substitutes.

If it's good enough for special forces, it's good enough for me.
Donovan Neal, Killing Floor 2

When it comes to shotguns, people throw around terms like stopping power and corridor clearing, but the truth it's a great weapon to feel like an awesome prick. No, scratch that. The God of Awesome Pricks. You don't have to be some 20-something douche looking to go from zero to hero to save his grody friends. Just grab a shotgun, because nothing says "I belong" to the world like two barrels to the face.
