    yup^ this is it.. he had it out at the target range I think.. as well as at the end of the movie "Sudden Impact".. which is my favorite.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    The .44 Automag was originally created in the late 60's by the Pasadena Corporation. After the Pasadena days, several companies had their own version of the firearm, including: TDE North Hollywood, TDE El Monte, High Standard, TDE / OMC, and AMT.

    Harry had received it as a gift. The grateful husband of a hostage and potential murder victim was a master gunsmith. A few months after Harry had rescued his wife from the mess of a botched bank robbery, he had sent him the boxed gun and a card that read, "You saved my wife's life. Maybe this will help to save yours.".

    In his time as a cop, Harry had never accepted a thing, not even a free cup of coffee. But he accepted this gift.

    I believe Harry Sanford opened his "Auto Mag Corporation" (the first producer of them) in Pasadena, California in 1970 and the first Auto Mag shipped in 1971.
