The Colt Detective Special was a small revolver used by Van Helsinki in the fanfiction Van Helsinki: Sophia's Plea. It was taken out of Sophia's wardrobe when Van hid from the tear gas used by the Inspector to try and flush him out. Van used the weapon to threaten the Inspector and his troops, but eventually lowered it. Van presumably dropped it when he fell unconscious at the fic's end.
Behind the scenes and triviaEdit
- The Colt Detective Special may be a symbolic reference to Van becoming a police detective again shortly after he picks up the weapon. The gun certainly was used by US police at one time in history.
