The Weapons of 'The Blacklist' Season 1

I love the internet! As a knowledge junkie, I can find anything and everything online. Now, instead of lugging volumes of The World Book Encyclopedia with me to the bathroom (c'mon, I can't be the only kid who read the complete encyclopedia for pleasure?),  presently, I only need to take my tablet along during those long commercial breaks.

I can't believe there exists the Internet Movie Firearms Database, IMFDB, which includes an entry on season 1 of The Blacklist.  Me thinks a certain member of our blog, a former military man, will get a real kick out of this site.

For a firearms enthusiast, of which I'm not, this database is enthusiastically dope. There are listings for each of the 62 weapons used during the season, complete with a photo of each and a screencap from the episode it was used in. I don't know what any of these bad boys are, but I do know I don't want to be on the wrong end of this:
RPG-7  40mm
Ex-SPLA guerrilla fighter Dembe gets in on the action with a Smith & Wesson 3914 (NYPD DAO Auth. variant) near the end of "General Ludd".

I don't generally spend much time trying to figure out who is carrying what gun. For some reason though I did spend some time trying to figure out what Tom was carrying in Berlin and never did. Bit chagrined that it turned out to be something I owned once although it was back in the 80s.

I did think they made a mistake not having Red carrying his 1911 in Berlin. Red has been very old school in his gun choices either a 1911 or small revolver. My guess is they did not have access to a 1911 they could put a suppressor on.
