    I once had the opportunity when I was much younger to test fire one of those COP derringers and have to admit, I chickened out. Today, I'd probably have done it. But then, I was thinking of my hand and that tiny grip and full house magnum loads and it wasn't a happy mix....

    I dont know if anyone mentioned this or not. My favorite movie handgun has always been that "canon" that popped out of the side of Robocop's leg!

    Why do you say that? All the references show that it's a Model 29 S&W, which is the .44 Magnum.

    From The Internet Movie Database (IMDb)..............

    Dirty Harry's gun is supposedly a Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver, chambered for a .44 Magnum cartridge. In the film, the gun is shown as being capable of sending assailants flying through the air, even when shot from a distance, however, in reality the gun does not produce such dramatic results. Additionally, the .44 Magnum round is not considered to be a practical caliber for urban police force use due to recoil (which makes target re-acquisition difficult) and over-penetration issues, which greatly increases the likelihood of the bullet going through its target and injuring bystanders. The actual gun used on set by Clint Eastwood was reportedly not a Smith & Wesson Model 29. According to a story circulated by a member of the studio's prop department, Smith & Wesson did not have a Model 29 in stock at the time, and so a Smith & Wesson Model 57 chambered for a .41 Magnum cartridge was used. The Model 29 and Model 57 are identical except for minute differences in bore size, chamber dimensions, and exterior markings, none of which are visible in the film. Fans however, have claimed that in a close up at the end of the film, the gun carried by Eastwood is in fact a genuine Model 29 chambered for a .44 Magnum. The close-up clearly shows the markings "44 MAGNU," with the final "M" blocked from view.
