To shoot the colt. Gun functions flawlessly and I was impressed with accuracy. Although it hits about 6" high at 25 yards I was still able to kill clay pigeons. I'm more than happy with my detective special. The Polish job I did on it worked out wonderfully if I don't say so myself. I definitely won't be using it as carry gun with the holster I have now. It has no trigger guard coverage. Not a holster I would ever buy but it came with the gun.
