Can I safely shoot +P ammo in my Detective Special and my Official Police? I wouldn't shoot them regularly, just something to keep it loaded with. The DS is my CCW gun, and the OP is my home defender (for now...)

Depends on the age of the gun.

The post 1972 shrouded barrel Colt Detective Special was factory rated for up to 3000 rounds of +P, at which point the gun was to be returned to the factory for inspection, and possible frame replacement.

Most post 60's Official Police guns are Ok for +P use, but I don't know for sure how many rounds Colt recommended, or if they had a standard.
