That's very nice!

I don't have the snakes that certain others here can post, but I do have a few:

This four inch nickel Python is one of my favorite revolvers to shoot:


My first Python in Ultimate Stainless:


And something in blue:

A couple of other snakes of mine. First, a pair of Diamondbacks. The first is a .38 and the second a .22.





And a pair of Cobras, the first a .38 and the second, a fun little .22:

You know, it is bad enough that Jeff bought every Colt ever made (and I do mean EVERY Colt EVER made).

But then he takes beautiful pictures so you can see the guns you will never be able to own!!

LOL!

You Colt guys make me green with envy!

It makes me sad. Since any of those nice Colts are worth more then I paid for my car. I fear they will be even more rare and expensive in the coming years when I will be able to spend that much on my hobby...

I do accept donations if you have any surplus Colts you want to be rid of.

Can't blame you one bit. I wouldn't consider any of those 'spares' by any means

Got a couple, not as nice as Gunkwazy's. First attachment is a 4" blue Python, 6" nickle Python, and a 6" bright stainless Python. The 4" is a family heirloom - a uncle's personal carry weapon when he was a LEO.

Second attachement is one of my Python Target .38 Specials.

After seeing some of these great photos of these beautiful guns, you'll understand why I jumped in and posted mine first. My photos are sorta' a warm up for a couple of other posters here.

3 inch Python?

Why can't companies today do bluing like that Colt Royal Blue? There isn't a prettier finish out there.
