Can a Colt Detective Sp handle +P ammo?

  1. I found a 1994 Detective Special new in the box for sale. I am very interested in purchasing it and I would love to use it for carry this summer.

    Can it handle +P ammo ?

    What ammo and holster would you recommend for carry ?

    Thanks !

    Practice with regular.
    End with a cylinder of +P.
    Carry +P.
  4. I have read the same as above. My pick would be what was most accurate. Corbon DPX, Spear Gold Dot 135G. or Hornady Critical Defense.

    I'd carry Federal 125 gr Nyclad HPs (standard pressure) and practice with 148 gr wad cutters. Carry in any kind of a pancake type holster that will keep it close to your body. Learn to float those bunny-loads into the target with precision and fear no evil. Carry 2 speedloaders.
