How 'bout a Glock 18. It could be the one that Saddam had on him when he was rousted out of his rat-hole. Maybe his vile and corrupted spirit possessed it when he was hanged (yes, proper usage is "hanged", not "hung.") John Holmes was hung. Anyway, have fun with it!

Just read it today, and while I agree with those who said the Glock would be recognizable--after all, it is the "plastic gun that could make it through airport security undetected" according to the late idiot senator Metzenbaum (spelling?) from Ohio who helped to make it famous with all his anti gun blathering a few years ago--please think carefully before deciding to publish a story that the antis are going to jump on and use to their advantage!
Most pro-gun people are constantly trying to convince people that a gun is an inanimate object and is NOT evil in and of itself. It is people that are evil--not the inanimate object! Don't help the antis!
Just my .02 for what it is worth.

to me a lot of it would be where the BG got the gun from; robbed an old person;s house it would be a revolver. if they robbed a modern upscale house it would be a glock or sig. it all counts on the time and place of the story.

Please try to remember- I have a very dry sense of humor. It usually sounds mean, but isn't meant to be.
Beretta M9,after being subjected to the horrors of war,the M9 was returned to an Armory back in the States,but suffering from an undiagnosed case of PTSD the next time it was issued out on the firing range there were several cases af AD that couldn't be explained.The gun would fire without warning whether it was holstered or was being gripped prior to engaging a target.After being retired from the range and slated for destruction on the way to the smelter it was stolen and sold on the streets in a back alley.

As a professional writer, let me approach this differently. I would use a cheap, exploitive, "Saturday Night Special." Remember, we are always saying "guns don't kill people, people kill people." So, if the gun is going to kill people it should have some "cheapness" to it one way or another. Claud Clay brings up an important point, factually. If a gun cannot be possessed, and I have written some on this in my fiction, then you have to take the approach that it is not possessed but cursed and there is a distinction. If it is possessed then you are going to need to lay a basis for some quantum physics here to explain how inanimate objects are possessed. Now, demonic entities might be attracted to something because of its history, what is called a generational curse (though not truly a generational curse from a Biblical perspective, due to a lack of procreation). If these entities are attracted to the weapon it would be for the sins committed with the weapon. Again, my suggestion is for the type of weapon most of us do not want to see on the streets. So, in a nutshell, I would go for a despicable weapon with a history of violence. A cursed gun not a possessed one.
