    here is my beloved colt python its got the colt rubber grips which are super comfy making it really easy to shoot. its the only revolver that has stayed in my collection. too bad they arent still being made.

    I regret letting mine go more than just about any other gun I've traded away foolishly. :eek: 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?

    Mine is older than I am. My Dad bought it because they were out of the S&W that he wanted, so he had to "settle" for the Python (settle, I still find that amusing). It is a 1965 build that originally came fitted with a 6" barrel. Original purchase price was $125 w/ LEO discount. At some point in the mid to late 80s it was fitted with a 8" Silhouette barrel (I have the 6" if reqd). I still shoot it regularly. It is a permanant member of the family, & will be my son's when the time comes. It's 45 now, I will send it to Colt for a going through and reblueing for it's 50th. Every enthusiast should at least shoot one.
