You are right.....the Python is ONE of the most amazing .357 revolvers one can ever shoot.( there are others as people will testify)
I have always wanted one, and finaly found one at a gun show under a $1,000.00 and bought it.
I also would like to get a nice S&W Model 27, and a Korth, if I ever find one and I have the money.
So go ahead and fulfill your dream, and get one as I did.
And then dream about the next quest! lol
