T-1000 hides gun
T2 omitted scene
The T-1000 hides its gun in itself.
Van Ling (Creative Supervisor), in T2, the Book of the Film, An Illustrated Screenplay:
The visual effect of T-1000/Lewis hiding the gun in its chest was omitted during production prior to the hospital location shoot for both technical and production scheduling conflicts in shooting the plate for the computer graphics; it was a neat but unnecessary detail that was going to cost a great deal of time and money to shoot. The whole idea of guards having to check their guns when in the patient areas, although technically accurate, took time to establish and unnecessarily slowed the pacing of this and other scenes. The important point showing T-1000/Lewis taking the dead Lewis' gun is retained.
Terminator 2 script, Revised final shooting script:
66G INT. CORRIDOR/NIGHT RECEIVING DESK T-1000/Guard comes back out and glances at the nurse. T-1000/GUARD All set. She glances toward it. Sees the Beretta in its holster. NIGHT NURSE Gotta check the gun first, Lewis. T-1000/GUARD Yeah, sorry. T-1000 opens the locker and blocks it from her view with its body as it mimes putting the gun in. 66H CLOSE ANGLE ON T-1000'S CHEST, from inside the locker. Instead of setting the gun in the locker, it inserts the pistol into it own chest, where is disappears inside like it was dropped into a pot of hot fudge. It withdraws its hand. The chest is once again a surface that looks like cloth, buttons, name-tag etc. You'd ever guess it was really an intelligent liquid metal. T-1000 slams the locker door and waits as the nurse hits the button unlocking the door with a BUZZ-CLACK. T-1000/Guard goes through. CUT TO:
