More at the Museum
This is a very famous Model 29, one of the guns used in DIRTY HARRY. It was all scarred up from being slid down a sidewalk, then refinished by S&W and presented by Clint Eastwood and Warner Brothers to John Milius, the screenwriter for DIRTY HARRY and MAGNUM FORCE. Here's Joe at work with the same gun:
And Dan Ramm, who works with Joe and is a producer on both GUN STORIES and SHOOTING GALLERY, doing his best Harry Callahan imitation:
Better hang onto the day job, Brother Dan! Last night we went to a reception at the U.S. Capitol for the GI Film Festival, where Joe received a GI Spirit Award for his extensive work with the military...in fact, he's in D.C. to cohost the huge National Memorial Day concert.
As I mentioned in a tweet yesterday, it looks like we'll be making a big announcement on one of our pet Internet projects pretty soon...will be working in conjunction with the National Firearms Museum on this one, and it's a doozy!
