Silver bullets are normally associated with werewolves, but I think that silver in general used to be considered an anti-vampire technique. This is one theory for why vampires don't have a reflection - mirrors used to have silver behind the glass. It would normally be a sword/knife, rather than a bullet, but there are stories about vampires being killed by silver. See: http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_597364.html

In the case of the film, it was a little vague, but it may be significant that the guys were watching a vampire film in the background.
