A pretty powerful pistol. Highly popularized in the Dirty Harry movies and described as "the most powerful handgun in the world" even though it was not.
I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk? -- Dirty Harry (1971).

Get the 44 magnum mug.
if you are up to 20 feet away and i shot at you with a "44 magnum" and missed by as much as five feet you would wish you were dead due to the awesome force that flys by after one of the cartriges have been detonated.

A handgun cartrige orignially developed for the Smith & Wesson. Model 29 double action revolver. The .44 Mag is the brainchild of pistolero Elmer Keith.
The .44 Magnum was forever immortalized when it was first seen in the Clint Eastwood movie, 'Dirty Harry.' It has become a popular handgun hunting round, and can be found chambered in various handguns, including the Smith & Wesson 629 (and variants), Ruger's Blackhawk, Redhawk, and Super Red Hawk revolvers, and of course the ever popular Israeli Desert Eagle autoloading pistol. While no longer the reining heavyweight champion, it is far more practical than cartridges such as the .454 Casull, .475 Linebaugh, (.50 Action Express), and .500 Smith & Wesson.
Do you feel lucky punk?

According to a friend of mine:

"The .44 magnum, for when you need to shoot through not 1 car, not 2 cars but 3!"

Also capable of destroying your arms if you hold it wrong
Harry fires a .44 magnum, he didn't hold it right and was sore for weeks

Larry who is in a gunfight fires his .44 magnum at a guy hiding behind a car. The guy died.
