The 10-gauge shotgun used by Arnold Schwarzenegger during the majority of the film is a six-shot Winchester Model 1887. It was invented by gun designer John Browning and was the first commercially successful repeating shotgun. James Cameron confirmed that it is a 10-gauge shotgun, not a 12-gauge, in the commentary.

Terminator 2 is quite the action film. Arnold returns as the Terminator, but now with a different (and not as dark) mission. This time, he takes the place of Michael Biehn's character in the first part and Robert Patrick takes the part of the evil one. Differences though because this time John Conner, Sarah's (and the original soldier) son, is the target and the Terminator is after him. And, Patrick's terminator is called the T-1000 and is completely liquid (in amazing Oscar winning visual effects). Superbly filmed for maximum impact, it's also great fun, and some very memorable quotes (new and old). For those not looking for a full-on masterpiece of the cinema, it's still a very cool film and one of Arnold's best. But for the 'snobs', it should still act as entertainment- and prove that Cameron is expert at editing and story. This was Edward Furlong's film debut as the young conner. A+
