    Colt Detective Special

    I bought mine in 1989. At my age 89 a semi-auto slide is very hard to rack so I've gone back to revolvers. My third generation detective special is a natural with Hornady Critical Defense 38 spcl 110 gr FTX ammo. Six rounds single or double action. Very accurate, rapid, and reliable at short range .

    I wish I hadn't sold mine. I inherited it from my father when he passed, and honestly I didn't know what I had. I wanted a shiny new hi-cap polymer gun and all he sold dusty (and rusty) revolvers were just junk. This one was one of the better preserved specimens, and one of the few regrets.

    edit - I am too dumb to post the picture.
