The World’s Most Powerful Handguns

When it comes to an analysis of some of the world’s most powerful handguns, it’s hard not to think of Dirty Harry.

The grizzled character uttered one of the most iconic linesever by a gun-wielding movie character. After cornering an uncooperative criminal, he pointed his huge revolver at the perpetrator and said, “I know what you are thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all of this excitement, I’ve kind of lost track myself. But, being that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?”

    1. I don't know as I haven't counted before but remember seeing the movie in San Francisco after evacuation from Saigon.

  2. A little off the subject, but this is after Josey Wales used his pistols, one of my favorite, brief quotes. --Ron W
