Hickok45 moves to his “long” range to put the Dirty Harry classic wheel gun to the test, zapping tiny plates at distance with the big .44 hand cannon.

The S&W Model 29, a hefty N-frame revolver, hit the market in 1955 and at the time was the most powerful production handgun available due to its .44 Remington Magnum chambering. A favorite of handgun hunters, Clint Eastwood, clocking in as San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan, made the series famous in 1971’s Dirty Harry, using a Model 29 that he toted in an outsized Bucheimer-Clark shoulder rig while quizzing punks on luck.

For reference, Hickok’s .44 is a personal gun, picked up in 1974. Topping it off with handloads from his pocket, he proves that it can still deliver.
