6. .44 Magnum Smith & Wesson 29
Dirty Harry is the movie that established both the on-screen and off-screen popularity of the S&W 29, making it an instant classic. In the film, this lovely blued 6.5″ barreled wheelgun took center stage, while Clint Eastwood’s character “Dirty” Harry Callahan was pushed into a supporting role.
This gun became a part of the pop culture of the bygone years. As a result, Eastwood revisited the silver screen multiple times as Inspector Callahan with his signature sidearm at his side. A few examples of these are Magnum Force (1973), The Enforcer (1976), Sudden Impact (1983), and The Dead Pool (1988). All of these films further solidified the Model 29’s popularity.

8. Desert Eagle .50
The Desert Eagle .50 is a firearm that is carried by only the baddest mamma jammas in films. If a character is to be established as a force to be reckoned with, they are seen carrying this baby. Its distinct triangular shape and massive size make it hard-to-miss both on-screen and in real life.
