Dirty Harry

 

 

It's important to start with the legend. Who could not remember the famous line uttered by Clint Eastwood about his S&W Model 29 while looking down on a crook on the ground. Six shots were fired and a legend has been born. stock. The holster Harry was using was a vertical shoulder holster. They are excellent in concealing hand cannons such as the Model 29. The benefit of vertical shoulder holsters is that the whole weight of your firearm is distributed equally, i.e. it hangs down and it's center of mass doesn't wobble around and poke people standing behind you. Plus the draw is more natural and the muzzle of your revolver points down.

You may ask what is so special about that S&W Model 29? At the time of its introduction the Model 29 was the most powerful production handgun, although it was later overtaken by handguns chambered for the even larger .454 Casull and .50 A cartridges. The Model 29 was offered with  various barrel lengths from 3 inches to enormous 10 inch hand cannons.. A little funny fact is, that after the movie's release, retailers had trouble keeping the Model 29 in

Bond, James Bond. Have you ever told it to anyone that asked you what your name was? We know you did. Who did not fancy this British chap and his skills in handling enemies as well as ladies is a liar. We all wanted that Walther PPK once in our lifetime, or any other Walther gun that this gentleman has wielded. Suit up and continue reading about the famous firearm wielded by many impersonators of this legendary character.

James Bond's Gun

The PPK features an exposed hammer, a traditional double-action trigger mechanism, a single-column magazine, and a fixed barrel that also acts as the guide rod for the recoil spring. That is not something extraordinary, so you might ask why the gun for this spy? The PP and the PPK were among the world's first successful double action semi-automatic pistols. James should have the PPK as his chosen sidearm. It may not be as accurate as some other pistols of the same era the PPK had the great advantage of using the 7.65mm (.32 ACP) cartridge which was available all over the globe, fitting in with Bond's  lifestyle. Thus the Legendary Walther PPK entered into Bond folklore and into popular culture as the preferred weapon of the espionage operative.

Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones, what can a person say when it comes to Indie. Flexin' a whip and some cool revolvers, or flexin' his hat and a Browning Hi-Power while killing evil Nazis and saving the world at the same time? I bet you can't go any cooler than that. Plus, Sean Connery is your father. The thing about Indie is that he was a fan of obscure revolvers, Colts, Smith&Wessons, etc. He once sported a sidearm - a Browning in the second movie and the internet doesn't know until this day where he kept it.

Indiana Jones' Gun

There were two primary revolvers used in Raiders of the Lost Ark. A Smith & Wesson 1917, chambered for .45 ACP and a a Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector Model 2. It is widely accepted that the Bapty was used in all the revolver shooting scenes. These, along with the mysterious Hi-Power were the pistols of choice for our adrenaline addicted archeologist. And to think that Harrison Ford almost declined the offer to play because he was contracted in a lot of movies directed by Spielberg and wanted to avoid being his go-to actor. What a loss that would be.

Indiana Jones Holsters

Here are some of our best archeologically-approved holsters you can holster your revolver or pistol in. We unfortunately don't sell whips of hats. But you can supply them elsewhere.

John Wick

The boogeyman, Baba Yaga, who knows John Wick knows 2 things. He likes dogs and shoots guns. Keanu Reeves underwent some hard physical and range training in order to portray Mr. Wick properly.

John Wick's Gun

John Wick uses a Heckler & Koch P30 L fitted with a custom compensator as his primary firearm through the film. The P30 L is a great handgun, there is very little that could be improved here, and for the price you will be hard pressed to find a better factory fresh handgun in the same class. That's why the worlds angriest dog owner chose it to deal with the bad guys. Hordes of bad guys.
