Glad to hear you like it! Nothing more frustrating then bringing a new toy home only to find out it really wasn't what you thought it was going to be....

Congrats on the new piece, it does look nice. My dad carried a Trooper for 25 yrs for Texas DPS. I got to shoot it a few times and it was NICE.

That's a hell of a deal. Those Colts don't last long. I was in Denver for a certification training this summer and spotted a well used, but good condition Anaconda for $700 right around closing. Went back to the hotel to "Sleep on it". Decided I wanted it. After the session that next day (and 1 1/2 hours in traffic) I hit the store about the same time and guess what... it was gone. I still get pissed every time I see one. (Usually over $1000)

In SA, I easily kept everything in about a 4 inch circle at 10 yards and this is very acceptable for me.

It was fun shooting .357 again as there's nothing like the serious boom and muzzle flash from touching these off. Recoil was easily controlled as this is a heavy gun and it was comfortable to shoot with the Pachmayr grips. Yup, this is a keeper...
Nice. I thought you would like it.

I think you got a great buy on it - I sure would have bought it.

Here's a picture of my Colt (it's a little older style ) :



Love all the Colt's ....

Congrats on your score, you got an excellent deal!
I like Colts too, they're nice guns. I've currently got these two, both are Lawman .357 in 2" & 4".
The snubby really barks with stout .357 rounds, the 4" is much more tame.

The stocks came in for the second Trooper I picked up. This one is a mint blue 4 inch gun but it was missing the stocks. I picked up these stocks (the zebrawood are to big) on ebay for cheap...
