The Arsenal: The Guns of Center Mass


Bill Nash: Weapons of Choice


Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum

The Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum Revolver

... Nash preferred revolvers. They were always reliable. He hated automatic pistols. He believed they were for assholes who couldn't hit anything with a regular handgun and needed those twelve to fifteen extra shots just to hit their target. Give him an old-fashioned six-shooter any day. It took real skill to shoot a handgun.

... He wanted a powerful handgun, and the Magnum was the most powerful there was at the time. He didn't shoot at something alive very often, but, when he did, he wanted to be effective.



Magnum Lever-Action Rifle

The Magnum Lever-Action Rifle

... Immediately, Nash jumped into the fray, using the corner fence post to support the little lever-action carbine. It was his favorite deer-hunting rifle, a .44 Magnum hot-loaded with thirteen large bullets.




The Good Guys' Weapons


Nash Senior's 12-Gauge, Semi-Automatic Shotgun

... The elder Nash's big twelve-gauge, semi-automatic shotgun was leaned up against the edge of the sofa, ready for action.

Remington 1100, 12-Gauge Semi-Automatic Shotgun








The Jersey Police's Remington 870, 12-Gauge Shotgun

Remington 870, 12-Gauge Shotgun



... The backup officers were armed with Remington 870, 12-gauge shotguns, loaded with double-O buckshot... There was no more devastating close-range weapon on earth than a twelve-gauge shotgun loaded with buckshot. With the amount of lead projectiles blazing out of the barrel, it was hard to miss any target within 15 feet. Projectiles were sprayed in a wide pattern, and that made the direction of the buckshot hard to control.
It usually hit what it was shooting at, but also everything else in a ten foot radius.




The Bad Guys' Weapons


The Intruders' Mac-10 9mm Automatic Pistols

Mac-10 9mm Automatic Pistol





... Two bodies lay on the floor in growing pools of blood. Both, dressed all in black, were completely motionless, with two Mac-10, fully automatic, 9mm machine pistols lying beside them. Spent bullet casings and empty cartridge magazines lay everywhere, scattered around the blood-soaked hallway.





Colt High-Powered Automatic Rifles & 9mm Pistols With Silencers


... In their signature black attire, they were shadows of death, moving silently in the night to perform their bloody work. Each man carried a Colt high-powered, fully automatic rifle with 120 rounds of ammunition in four interchangeable magazines. As a back up, each was armed with 9mm pistols with silencers.
