    Colt detective special
    Need to clean it up and swap the grips out. Might Polish the hammer and trigger plate just for giggles.

    Lol. Thanks guys. I was eating breakfast at the club and saw it advertised on the gun shop door for $460 out the door with holster and I jumped on it.
    Vic said 4 others had showed interest but needed permission from the wives or to save up. I have a credit card (0 Apr) and don't give a damn what the woman says. Lol
    He also mentioned he is looking for a gunsmith and asked me if I knew any good ones. I told him no. And he asked if I was still at the BS shop.
    Fingers crossed, see what happens.

    Thank you. I can't wait to get some rounds for it. May be difficult, the shop didn't have any.

    Very nice MM2.My DS is my every day carry gun. It's a mid 70's 3rd. generation.I was given the Pachmayrs that it wears but I like the Hogues better. They are a joy to shoot. Here's a couple of pics of mine. Regards Dick

    Update.
    I gave the gun a much needed detail strip and cleaning. Polished the hammer and trigger plate and got my grips.
    Before and after.
    Now if I can just find some ammo. Lol
