Inspector Callahan

Been watching Dirty Harry DVDs.  I realized I must have seen them all on commercial television.  Why?  There is a bit more nudity that I've ever seen before on previous viewings 

Boy howdy did he get Model 29 sales to soar, huh?  That's common knowledge.  And he was an icon of a cop almost from the day the movie was released.


Did Dirty Harry keep revolvers around a few extra years against the onslaught of semi-autos?  A litte boost of popularity that kept them in police departments just a few year longer than they would have?

Plus some more iconic cops came on the movie screan scene about the time 9mm became more acceptable in a little-c community of toters. 

(and not to mention the Miami FBI shootout and the results from that...)

Sudden Impact, harry had a 44 Auto-mag. I have the 1st 4 on DVD. For some reason I can't find the last one.

What is little reported is that the Model 29 sales did soar through the roof after Dirty Harry, BUT there was a Plethora of USED 29s on the market shortly thereafter with Boxes of Ammo missing 2/3/4 Rounds.
