The Smith & Wesson Model 29 was first introduced in 1955 as a 6-round cylinder revolver chambered as a .44 caliber. The handgun is manufactured by the U.S. Company Smith & Wesson which maintains its headquarters in Springfield, Illinois.
Jimmy Fallon was equipped with a Smith & Wesson Model 29 handgun during one of the Gyrosphere ride videos. Jimmy Fallon utilized the weapon to demonstrate the strength of the Gyrosphere glass, claiming that the sphere’s protective bubble would stop a ‘fifty caliber bullet’. However as he fired the weapon, he was noticeably affected by the recoil, and the lab in the video was destroyed for humorous effect.
