Law & Order - Season 6 (1995 – 1996)

Season 6 of Law & Order saw the addition of Benjamin Bratt as Detective Rey Curtis, replacing Chris Noth as Det. Mike Logan, who was transferred out of the precinct following his actions in the season 5 finale. Curtis was much more of a straight arrow, a religiously devout family man who saw the world in black and white. Richard Brooks reprised his role as Paul Robinette for the first of three appearances, revealing that he had left the DA's office for private practice.

The season finale of season 6 is notable for its departure from the usual Law & Order formula by not featuring any crimes and focusing only the private lives of the detectives and ADAs. The episode began with Briscoe, Curtis, McCoy and Kincaid witnessing New York state's first execution, a case investigated by Briscoe and Curtis and prosecuted by McCoy and Kinkaid (albeit offscreen.) Each one is shaken and slowly unravels, with Kincaid contemplating quitting the profession, family man Curtis cheating on his wife (in his defense, the other woman was a 24 year old Jennifer Garner) and Briscoe falling off the wagon. Kincaid is then killed in an auto accident while driving a drunk Briscoe home, bringing Jill Hennessy's tenure on the show to an end after 68 episodes.

Season 6 was also the only season in which the show won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, despite having been nominated eleven years in a row.




The following weapons were used in Season 6 of the television series Law & Order:


Smith & Wesson Model 36

Detective Lennie Brisco (Jerry Orbach) and Lieutenant Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) are armed with Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolvers. Despite the NYPD having officially switched to automatic pistols on January 1st, 1994, older officers like Briscoe and Van Buren were grandfathered in and allowed to continue carrying revolvers.

Glock 19

Detective Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt) and other NYPD officers are armed with Glock 19 pistols. Curtis is the first detective on the show to carry an automatic. All subsequent "junior" detectives would carry the Glock 19 as their service weapon.

Ruger GP100

A stainless Ruger GP100 is the murder weapon in "Savages" (S06E03).

Smith & Wesson Model 10HB

Smith & Wesson Model 10s are carried by the NYPD Officers in the initial seasons of the series. The Smith & Wesson Model 10 was an authorized weapon for all NYPD officers who had entered onto the job on or prior to 1986.

Colt Huntsman

The murder weapon in "Humiliation" (S06E07) is a nickel-plated Colt Huntsman with a 4.5" barrel. It can be identified as a Huntsman by its black plastic grips (which were only used on early 3rd series guns), straight barrel and fixed sights. It had been previously identified in the dialogue as a "Colt .22."

Unknown pistol

Karen Gaines (Ellen Greene) guns down suspect Nick Capetti in the courtroom in "Bitter Fruit" (S06E01). (Capetti is played by longtime recurring guest star and later Sopranos regular John Ventimiglia.) This is the only time it's seen, and there's not enough details to make an ID.

Ithaca 37

"Corpus Delicti" (S06E11) was unique in that it was not only one of the few instances where the audience sees the detectives actually fire their weapons, but they also had a candid discussion about their firearms.

Curtis: Oh that's beautiful Lennie, a real antique. (referring to Briscoe's S&W 36.)
Briscoe: Oh yeah? When that semi-auto of yours jams up, this "antique" will still be firing.
Curtis: Sure, until it runs out of bullets. All six. (S&W 36s only hold five rounds.)
Briscoe: It's not how many, Rey, it's where they go.

"It's where they go" is right. Especially if they all go in the ten ring.
