Michael Ives

His name is associated with the famed “Jurassic Narcs,” a group of drug enforcement agents who were known for their crusader-style approach to capturing drug dealers. Some even called them the DEA equivalent of the FBI’s Untouchables. But U.S. DEA officer Frank White was just trying to do a job the best way he knew how.

White was assigned to Miami in the 1970s and 1980s. At the time, the city had become a major port of entry for cocaine and was a key outpost in the battle against South American drug cartels. White’s high-profile endeavors earned him nicknames such as Dirty Harry, The Rifleman and The Wizard. His sidearm of choice was this Colt Combat Commander .45 pistol.

Some of White’s exploits were later fictionalized into episodes of the hit TV series “Miami Vice,” which brought him worldwide attention. In recognition of his accomplishments, then-Vice President George W. Bush presented White with the pair of ivory grips seen on this pistol.

Frank White’s Colt Combat Commander pistol can be found, along with many other historical guns, at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Va.
