throwdown gun(redirected from the throwdown gun)
An unregistered gun placed as evidence to suggest that a shooting by police was done in self-defense. Primarily heard in US. Something about the sergeant's description of the shooting seems off. I'm starting to have suspicions that the gun recovered at the scene was really a throwdown gun.
