I despise that article by Cunningham. He pretty much states, "Pythons aren't high maintenance, they just require more care, the occasional tune-up by a gunsmith and a little babying."
How dare you criticize any drawback regarding Pythons! That is pure blasphemy. Pythons are like Ferraris, you know cause Ferrari is over rated, not made anymore, and lost out to Masserati, right? In addition, everyone stopped buying Ferraris because they were the fastest highest quality car on the market! It only makes sense.
