Didn't he carry a PPK the first two seasons, and a 2" M&P after that? As I recall the bad guys got the PPKs he gave up.Snake45 said:
Great list but if your going old school you can't leave out Philip Marlowethreefeathers said:Not that I ever left my appreciation for them. But I'm carrying a Det Spec as a second gun for a while. The emotional tie with Sam Spade, Rockford, Johnny Dollar, Richard Diamond, is strong.
Mannix? I don't remember him carrying a PPK but then I don't remember him driving that Barris Kustom Toronado convertible, either, so I must have missed the entire first season.
