    I miss my Python

    We (originally my fathers) used to have a beautiful Colt Python, .357magnum. I think it had a 6in barrel, honed trigger (2lbs). Was absolutely beautiful.

    I rarely ever shot the thing and when I did it spit a lot of gun powder out of the cylinders. I traded it in for a Sig Trailside thinking it would see a lot more use and I would become a much better shooter w/ the extra range time. Trailside sucked.

    Now I don't have a Trailside or a Python.

    Just venting.

    I have always wanted a Colt Phthon.

    Never had one - just didn't seem to come around when I was buying - I've got lots of guns, but sure always wanted a Python ...

    Me too. I sold it to a Tucson cop back in the 60s. Wish I'd never let it go.

    I had a 6" Colt Python many years ago, traded it off for a customized Colt SAA. Bought a Smith & Wesson Model 586 Distinguished Combat Magnum with 4" barrel, later added a 6" barrel. Never pined for the Python since.

    It is my opinion the 586 is the finest DA .357 Magnum to come along.

    I carried a 6" Python in the early days of my LE career (in that department you weren't cool unless you packed a Snake...I was young and impressionable). It was smooth and extremely accurate. I sold it when I left that department because I needed the $$$; I regret it to this day
