I need another .357 like another hole in the head, but I have always lusted after a Python.

I regret letting mine go more than just about any other gun I've traded away foolishly. Very nice.

I really don't like Colt's cylinder release but I've learned to look past it on a few models and this is one of them. Very nice.

ive read that a lot about folks not liking that, but the only other revolvers ive had are 2 rugers. asingle 6 with the trapdoor latch in 22lr/22wmr and a blackhawk in 45lc. i spent a lot of rounds shooting my brothers gp100 the python was my first wheelgun. its always felt natural to me but im not a revolver guy. i bought the python because of the action and its a colt it was soooooo smooth it followed me home and stayed.

Outside of my dad's single six when I was younger I cut my revolver teeth on S&Ws. When I got an SP101 the push in rather then forward wasn't much of an adjustment but pulling back just seems weird to me.

Can we expect a range report?
