There should be NO DOUBT that if there’s one pistol in my collection that I love, it would be the Smith & Wesson model 29, although mine has a longer barrel than the one in the video below. The model 29 gained celebrity after the release of the film “Dirty Harry”, in 1971, starring Clint Eastwood, although it initially started production in 1955 by Smith & Wesson. Also, at the time, it was the world’s most powerful mass produced handgun in the world and it still is a favorite with gun enthusiasts to this very day.

Even though the video below is 24 minutes long, it is quite informative and entertaining, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
