The Babylon Project

This Smith & Wesson .38 Special was owned by Michael Garibaldi, a family heirloom passed down by his grandmother when she was a member of the Boston Police Department. He kept it around for sentimental reasons.[1] It has also been called a "slug thrower" because it is a projectile-based weapon.


  • While the gun is referred to by Garibaldi as a ".38 Special", this is actually the name of the ammunition type made by S&W, commonly used in revolvers. The .38 Special is derived from the .38 Long Colt and uses the same parent case. It was made due to claims by the military of the .38LC's inadequate stopping power.[2]
