The Baby Browning was a backup pistol used by Van Helsinki in the fanfictions Van Helsinki: Before the Case, Van Helsinki: Preparations and Van Helsinki: Before the Storm. In Before the Case, Van is given this weapon as a 'second backup'. He carries it in an ankle holster in Preparations. During Before the Storm, Van still uses it in an ankle holster, and then tapes the Browning inside his wardrobe. Van carries the weapon for the rest of the fanfiction, trying to draw it when faced by 'Vladimir', but instead fumbling and dropping it in a car footwell. Van declines to carry the weapon after, though he admits that it was the holster which failed him.
