Well, while doing a little cleaning in my late step-fathers old shop I came across a little something. It's a late 70s Colt Detective Special. I was told by my mother that its was my step-fathers boot gun when he worked for the PD back in the 80s. It's not really in too bad a shape except for the blueing, you can tell it was carried alot. Surface rust only, no pitting, lots of dust from where it had been "put away" but original grips had been damaged and you can see where someone had wood glued them back together. I took it home and after an hour or so it cleaned up pretty decent. Now my dillema. I dont know If I want to spend the bucks to send it back to Colt for reblueing, locate some original type grips and pack it in the safe, or have it reblued, replace the grips with a set of Badger boot grips and get a good ankle holster and carry on the tradition. Gimme some advise everyone! I'm kinda stuck here!
