I just got a 3rd edition DS as I felt I just couldn't carry my old Cobra anymore. Never shot the Cobra but carried it for defense.

But the DS should be able to handle a heavier load then the Cobra. Can the DS shoot +P?

Colt rated the late heavy barreled "D" frame guns for "limited use" of +P ammo.

Here's a link to a site with a late Colt Detective Special owner's manual.

This shows a page with Colt's instructions for shooting +P: http://www.stevespages.com/page7b.htm

Bottom line: You can shoot +P's in a later Colt, BUT the gun will be worn faster.

Thanks for the quick reply. This is a late model DS but just the same I think I'll limit the +P to carry only.
