    I've just come across some fantastic deals and they all happen to be revolvers. Not sure why but I'm not going to question it.

    1965 Colt Python, nickel plated

    A couple of holsters on order as well. Why have a firearm if you're never going to shoot it?

    S&W 442 Airweight

    Yay for light pocket carry.

    My local FFL has a line on a S&W 29, nickel, that I'm hoping to pick up as well. If I do, I'll update again.

    I was able to pick up the 29-3! It's a beaut to shoot.

    Congratulations on the new acquisitions.

    I love revolvers, myself. Bigger caliber the better.

    The Python is worth a few thousand if it's as good as the picture looks, nice score on it!!

    Thanks CDR and Samb.

    Picked up the Python at police auction. Winning bid, $1,995. Got lucky no one else wanted it more.

    Hey, fellow airweight CC'er here!

    I love S&W revolvers. My favorite revolver is my K-22 with my tyler T grip.

    My favorite is that 29. I brought it out to camp and it was a LOT of fun.

    The airweight makes a good coat pocket carry in tandem with a strong side 1911.

    That small 29 must be a blast. How's it handle?

    I have the S&W 629 3” Deluxe 44 Magnum which I can shoot quickly. I haven’t tried the S&W 629 Performance Center 2.6” 44 Magnum, yet. I’ll give a range report once I do.

    I’ve been working crazy hours.

    How bad is the kick on the short barrel 44? I've got a short barrel Ruger Blackhawk 44 and it's a nasty beast. If I shoot 18 rounds out of it I feel like I earned something.

    I think I'm going to trade off my Python for several less expensive firearms. Always looking for .45ACP, .44 Mag stuff, or 7.62x51.

    The Python just doesn't DO IT for me.

    A steal yes, but I didn't mention that with the bids and the sales tax, it came out well north of $2k.

    Expensive mistake to make but I'm definitely not ignoring the fine print going forward. Being a moron on a bidding site can be expensive. Yay me... /s

    I just shot it yesterday. It handles very well. It is very accurate. Recoil is not bad. I am changing to Hogue grips. The factory grips are too small.

    I love the adjustable sights. After two shots I noticed it was shooting too low. I made the correction and finished up the day on a good note.

    i shot my S&W 500 Magnum 4” and S&W 500 Magnum 6.5” beforehand. Huge difference. When I moved down to the 357 Magnum, that felt like a Small gun.

    Have you ever shot the 700 grain bullet out of the 500 s&w? It’s a beast
