the Dirty Harry thread got me thinking, if they remade Dirty Harry would they still have him use the S&W 29 .44Mag or AMT .44 Automag, or would they give him a modern pistol/revolver?

Glock 20 FTW!

I'm happy with my 21 myself but that's the answer to your question.

It's certainly on the short list.

A doublestack 1911 in 460Rowland might also make the cut.

(This could also be made cooler-looking for the screen, with a compensator, a few chrome parts, fancy grips, etc. and so might be better, considering how modern movies go these days.)

Glock 20 is a good call, but it doesn't have the cache of the Delta Elite.

My first thought as well. 10mm loaded hot is 16 rounds of go away.

Not loaded hot... Remember, he carried .44 Special ammo.

Big gun, less recoil.

He actually used a 41mag in the move.  They just said it was a 44mag

The new Dirty Harry would most likely still use the 44mag.

Harry only used the  .44 special ammunition at the gun range during competition because he said it was easier to control.

He carried .44 magnum on the street.

If he were still on the force today he'd carry a  .500 S&W because he's Dirty Harry and he can.

Glock

I know what you’re thinking: "Did he fire twenty six shots or only twenty five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being this is a Glock, the most inexpensive handgun in the world, and could blow my hand clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do you, punk?

Dirty Harry wouldn't be seen with a glock of any sort.

That's a negative.

He explained it at the indoor range, but said he carried .44 Special.  Don't make me get out the DVD

Smith & Wesson, of course. I would imagine him with a souped up M&P.

G20SF, the most powerful handgun in the world of course!

He would carry a S&W model 29 .44mag.

Link Posted: 9/8/2013 6:44:36 PM EDT
It would still be a revolver. The major theme in the movies was proper shot placement above capacity.

Since he did change to the Auto-Mag he has shown that he wasn't married to the model 29. I think he would carry a .500 S&W.

He would still carry the 6.5" 44 Mag...

In the range scene, where he stated he carried "Light Specials", he was supposed to say that he carried "Special Light 44 Mag loads", but the director let the mistake in the script slide, and used it in the movie...

"Callahan states the use of a "Light Special", .44 Special loads (a reference to the fact that .44 special cartridges can be fired in .44 magnum handguns), that he loads himself because it gives him "better accuracy and control in a gun this size," like using wadcutters in a .357 Magnum. In the audio commentary on Magnum Force DVD (Warner Bros. Entertainment, 2001), John Milius (who wrote the story and co-wrote the screenplay), said they got it wrong during filming, that "it's really not supposed to be a light Special, it's just supposed to be a little lighter .44 Magnum load." In one film, Harry's partner Frank DiGiorgio, refers to Harry's gun as a "pocket-cannon"."

Officer Phil Sweet: What kind of a load do you use in that .44?

Harry Callahan: It's a light Special. This size gun it gives you better control and less recoil than a .357 Magnum with wadcutters.
