My great grand dad. I don't have a clue what the guns are.

After my Grandfather passed a couple of years ago I got a photo album with about 60 pictures that he took or are of him from his time in Korea.  Here's a sampling:  

Sometimes when I see these pictures, I am curious about “the rest of the story”. Here is the rest of the story about that Train/Tank collision. http://nrhs1.org/assets/1304_April_Dispatcher.pdf

Actor is easy, Steve McQueen, revolver looks like it should be easy but drawing a blank (puns intended)

Name the actor and/or gun.

Now that's a well equipped squad car! Can't be certain. but that sure looks like 2 grenades on the running board. And is that a revolver with a stock up near the front?

That pistol looking thing with a stock is a gas grenade gun. That long thing just to its left appear to be a cartridge for it. The hand grenades appear to be either gas or smoke. 

I see the shotgun and the Thompson, but I can't quite make out the rifle in the middle. Can anybody identify that? 

You might also note the armor on the radiator.

I didn't consider the idea of a gas grenade/pistol launcher. But most likely that is it. Can't see the rifle. But what about the stick/rod leaning on the tire carrier?

I have the latest Henry version fun little gun. Not sure why I bought it other than I got it cheap. Local dealer took it in on trade in original box with few if any rounds shot.
