I have shot and enjoyed Colt Pythons since I was a teenager. (Less expensive then too.)

This is a neat shot of me shooting a 4 inch Python with some super magnums I loaded up just for fun.

I was shooting some real hot .357 Magnums loaded up with 17.0 grains of 2400 powder with a 125 grain JHP bullet. I was having my son shoot it to learn how to ride out the recoil. Boy did it kick!

Big Balls Of Fire!!

I have an old set of low profile rings on an 8 inch Python that I put on when I was in high school. They loop around the barrel through two of the vent slots of the barrel. Work wonderfully and I've never had any trouble with them even with lots of magnum shooting.

Your set looks nice but I think they'd be somewhat higher than I'm used to.

Great revolvers to shoot and look at. Classic.

Thanks.

I have a Trooper Mark III in nickel plate that has a wonderful hammer pull and trigger. I've always loved this one that I used to shoot a lot when I was in high school. As strong as the Python. Yours predates my Mark III, I think. Nice firearms!

I use to have a prejudice that favored Colt revolvers.

In time, I went over to the 'Dark Side'.

I just shoot better with a S&W and S&W's .357 cartridge, (with due thanks to the late pioneers, Elmer Keith and Philip Sharpe)!

ALL COLT. No S&Ws!

That's quite a "Snake Pit". Nice!

I shoot fakes, now, (imitation Colts, S&W, and FN-HP).

I had a 'stainless' King Cobra, I wish I'd Kept. I gave my 'Det. Special' - 'Snubbie' to my eldest son.

I walked away ... (no ran) ... from a 1917 'New Service', yesterday. Too much money for a 'shooter', and I am trying to simplify my life.

p.s. I never could shoot a New Service well. S&W "N" Frames, I like.

Nice collection of snakes Whig!

Sold my Python back in the '80s for $400.  Cry

Only Colt handguns I have now is an old 1917 and these two highly desirable and well regarded All American 2000s. Grin

I have a question: Is a fake Colt still better than a S&W?!

I love the looks of the old Service revolvers and Police Positives and those neat grips. The lanyards like you have add something special to the look also.

Great gift for your son to give him your Detective Special. I still carry mine a lot. I had to have one after watching Rockford Files all the time when I was a kid. One of my favorite shows.

A fake S&W Schoefield is the best!

A real Philippine Constabulary Colt would be nice.
