Smith & Wesson 5906

The Smith & Wesson 5906, or S&W 5906, is a pistol used by Van Helsinki during the events of the fanfiction Van Helsinki: The Hunt. Van draws the weapon from a hip holster when he enters Professor Ford's house. He carries it when he sees the arrival of two of the cleaners, but the third attacks him and he loses the weapon out of the window. Van later retrieves the weapon from the plant pot it fell into, and replaces it in one of his pockets. Van later draws the weapon during his infiltration of the ComsSecc HQ to take one ComsSecc guard hostage temporarily. Van then shoots the man twice, killing him, when the latter draws a knife and attacks Van. Van states that he lost the weapon in the ComsSecc HQ when it fell down a grate as he was grappling with a guard.


Behind the scenes and triviaEdit

  • The S&W may be a reference to Fox Mulder's choice of weapon for one series of the X-Files, which saw Mulder trying to solve cases connected to aliens and the like, much like Van. Mulder had a habit of dropping his gun, which may be referenced by Van's losing of the weapon out of the window, and then down the grate.
