Glock 19

The Glock 19 is a compact Austrian weapon used by Van Helsinki during the fanfictions Van Helsinki: All the Hearts and Van Helsinki: Before the Storm, and by Henry Trent and Sophia in Van Helsinki: Over. Van carries the weapon in a shoulder holster, and stashed it empty under his bed when not in use. In All the Hearts, Sophia remembers that Van would carry the weapon down the back of his trousers when in bed. Van uses the weapon in Before the Storm to shoot two men assaulting him in his hotel room, but it jams when he shoots at a third. Van tries to reach for the weapon again after 'Vladimir' blows up his car, but the assassin removes it from him. Van is told by Inspector Someone-Who-Is-Not-David-Bowie that his Glock was recovered, but that he is not to use it again, a sentiment which Van also expresses, though he does admit that it was the first time the weapon has jammed on him. In All the Hearts, Sophia remembers when Van used to carry the weapon in bed. Henry Trent carries the weapon in a hip holster, and uses it to shoot Sophia in the right arm, but drops it when Van shoots him. Sophia later picks up the gun and uses it on Trent.


Behind the scenes and triviaEdit

  • The Glock was presumably replaced by Van's M1911, which he carries in the actual film, in a shoulder holster.
  • Van's carrying of the Glock in bed references his placing of the 1911 in his trousers during Van Helsinki.
  • The choice of weapon was perhaps due to it being the same weapon Leonardo DiCaprio's character carries in Body of Lies, a favourite film of the fanfic writer,
