No-nonsense Chicago PD detective Truman Gates (Patrick Swayze) is a particularly well-heeled policeman, carrying both a nickel plated Beretta 92F 9mm automatic in a shoulder holster, and a snub nosed Smith and Wesson model 19 .357 magnum revolver on his right hip. Presumably, the revolver is his backup weapon as he uses the Beretta, almost exclusively.
Composer Gary Chang was brought in to provide additional music to the film to help "beef-up" the action elements.
