A night at the movies
Went to a movie this evening. As I was walking into the theater, I glanced at some of the posters of coming movies. A few of them showed someone holding/shooting a gun. I noticed that in each poster, the person was using a Beretta 92. I am kind of wondering why all the posters use Berettas. How does Hollywood decide which gun to use? How come I never see those Glock 7s anymore?

Im betting its based on "coolness" factor more than anything, unless specifically trying to be accurate to the plot and characters
the beretta 92F has a more interesting looking slide when compared to the plain jane blocky glock slide
therefore, increased coolness factor

Or Beretta has a larger budget for product placement.

Nobody really believes a product that is recognisable in a movie was an accident. Companies have to pay to get their name exposed. No one gets free advertising any more.

*SIGH* What ever happened to the good old days, when they always showed the guys holding a 1911?

Of all the major names in decent pistols, Beretta is behind the 8 ball, so they would benefit most from some product placement. I don't think Glock really needs to be advertised much at this point.

How come no one uses a KelTec?

Isn't the Beretta 92 the "platform" used by CA cops? Or at least LA?
Maybe it's just a case of "use what the cops have... must be good..." plus product placement...
Few use 1911 and glocks are used a lot by "bad guys" in some movies... like the AK47 and varients.
