The Dead Pool is the fifth and final installment in the Dirty Harry film franchise. The 1988 sequel finds Inspector Callahan (Clint Eastwood) trying to solve a series of murders that appears to be a linked to a game that features a list of celebrities that were deemed likely to be dead in the near future. The film's cast included Liam Neeson, Evan Kim and featured one of the earliest acting roles for Jim Carrey.

The following weapons were used in the film The Dead Pool:



Smith & Wesson Model 29

Inspector "Dirty Harry" Callahan (Clint Eastwood) continues to carry the Smith & Wesson Model 29 as his sidearm in the film.

Inspector Callahan (Clint Eastwood) kills the last of mobster Lou Janero's (Anthony Charnota) thugs with his Smith & Wesson Model 29.
"You forgot your fortune cookie... it says.. you're shit out of luck."
Callahan fires at one of the robbers in the Chinese restaurant.

Harlan Rook (David Hunt) with Callahan's Model 29.
Callahan checks to make sure his Smith & Wesson Model 29 was indeed empty by pulling the trigger. This isn't a recommended method though, since if it isn't empty, a nasty surprise awaits. Another note is that, in a continuity error reminiscent of the original film, Callahan pulls the trigger in double-action, despite the gun previously being cocked to a single-action state just before this.

Browning Hi-Power

A Browning Hi-Power is used by the Gunman #1 in the Chinese Restaurant (Kristopher Logan). One is also seen in the shoulder holster of one of Lou Janero's (Anthony Charnota) bodyguards sent to protect Insp. Callahan (Clint Eastwood). The bodyguard is played by Clint Eastwood's stand-in.
