Love my old Colt Detective Special

Been shooting handguns since 1979. Started as a 100% double action revolver guy. Gradually drifted into autos, and then settle down with 1911s for a long time. Now I'm getting back into double action revolvers. Have quite a few, they just hadn't been shot in a long time. Anyway, shot my post 1972 Detective Special yesterday and was disappointed that it was shooting high and left consistently. Today I brought my old model Detective Special and was pleased to see that it shoots dead on with 158 grain lead round nose. In sustained fire double action at seven yards I was keeping them inside of three inches, which is more than good enough for typical self defense shooting. Really like this gun. Will probably make a great carry gun once my Milt Spark Versa Max II gets here.
