Dirty Harry is on the trail of vigilante cops who are not above going beyond the law to kill the city's undesirables.
Early Smith's sidearm is a Colt Diamondback snub nose. Manufactured from 1966 to 1986, this firearm is now a valuable collector's item.
This is a 44. Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and it could blow your head clean off. Do you feel lucky?
After Harry discovers that there's a bomb in his mailbox, he goes upstairs to his room and pulls out his Smith & Wesson. He then puts it on top of his chest of drawers and searches for a screwdriver. Finding the screwdriver, he picks up his gun to leave, and puts his thumb on the hammer. The sound of a Model 29 uncocking is heard, but Harry doesn't actually uncock it because it was never cocked.
The credits are played over a hand (presumably Harry's) holding a 44 Magnum against a red background. As such, this is the only Dirty Harry movie in which the opening credits are not played over San Francisco scenery.
