A detective is an investigator, usually a member of a law enforcement agency. Some are private persons, and may be known as private investigators or "private eyes".
Informally, and primarily in fiction, a detective is any licensed or unlicensed person who solves crimes, including historical crimes, by examining and evaluating clues and personal records in order to uncover the identity and/or whereabouts of the criminal.
In some police departments, a detective position is achieved by passing a written test after a person completes the requirements for being a police officer. In many other police systems, detectives are college graduates who join directly from civilian life without first serving as uniformed officers. Some people argue that detectives do a completely different job and therefore require completely different training, qualifications, qualities and abilities than uniformed officers. The opposing argument is that without previous service as a uniformed patrol officer, a detective cannot have a great enough command of standard police procedures and problems and will find it difficult to work with uniformed colleagues.

Up for grabs is a Nickel finish Colt Detective six shot 38 special revolver. Two factory Colt grips included. A few blemishes but overall a nice revolver. Shoots nice groups on targets at 30 feet. I have another and don't carry this one so its time to move it forward. Thanks for looking...
Looking to trade for a Colt Detective Special (blued) in very good to mint condition. I'm a small-time collector, so let me know what you're interested in trading for. Currently have a S&W Walther PPK/S (blued - .380) I'd like to trade. Also have a ton of AK stuff, mags, ammo, accessories, etc.

1994 Gen 3 Colt Detective Special. She is in overall excellent condition with less then 24 rounds through her. I would say 98% on the grade sheet and has been a safe queen. No box or papers sorry. Asking SOLD+ transfer at LGS. Will ship to FFL on your pocket book. Thanks for...
Colt Detective Special
Shows some wear, but in good shape for its age. I’ve only fired a few dozen rounds through it since I’ve owned it, but it’s functioned perfectly. Has the unbeatable old school Colt revolver trigger
Buyer pays transfer fees
This is a beautiful 2" snubnose. It is 3rd Gen as it has a shroud.
Price is $800 ... in 99% condition, same grips as the one in the pictures, plus comes with 2 Safariland holsters (very nice), one black, one tan.
Picture is not the gun I am selling, but it is the same gun.

Selling this Colt Detective Special 6-shot 38 for a friend(I have an FFL). This revolver is in excellent condition with some minor turn marks and slight burn rings. The bluing looks like it was done yesterday! No holster wear and no other handling marks. I bought this from a NWF member about 8-9...
The other day I stopped into Pinto's to introduce my friend Kevin to the wonder and glory of that particular shop. Naturally I had to have a look in the case and spotted a near-pristine Colt Junior .25 auto for $300- a pretty good price for one in that condition. I would have seriously thought...
I am becoming more and more concerned with the status of our rights and the rise of what I feel is a militarized police state in our country. This woman was assaulted and arrested for following the law, which also was hospital policy. The detective had no authority to physically manhandle and...

I posted this recent find on another thread, but after a nice day at the range with this gun, I thought I would start a separate thread.
As an old time detective about when this gun was new (1973), I think I would still feel mighty comfortable with it along with some modern ammo like this...
Any idea on a realistic value for this? I have been wanting to add one to the collection and I have an opportunity to snag one. This thing is unfired and in perfect condition. All original and unfortunately no box.
Tell me again how only Officer's can safely handle firearms.
I say that condescendingly, However, I'm a huge supporter of LEOs and this is extremely tragic. What a horrible situation and now two lives are ruined, one ended.
