The Coolest Movie Guns
Firearms have been a part of the movies since “The Great Train Robbery” flashed onto the Silver Screen in 1903. In many movies the gun is as important as the character, and often is what makes a scene iconic. AmericanRifleman.org has put together a list of 10 favorite movie guns and why they are so remembered.
Smith & Wesson Model 29 from “Dirty Harry”
Harry Callahan, played by Clint Eastwood, made the Model 29 in .44 Mag. famous while challenging his nemeses in the “Dirty Harry” movies. At the time, the .44 Mag. was considered the big boy on the block, though today, it has been eclipsed by the .454 Casull, the .460 S&W and the .500 S&W. However, there is still just something about holding a Smith & Wesson Model 29 in .44 that makes you want to dare: “Go ahead, make my day.”
