Guys and gals...I love Ruger weapons. They are my favorite manufacturer by far and they outnumber all other makes in my collection by a wide margin. However, I must confess that one of my life long dreams has been to own on early production, royal blue Colt Python.
Well wouldn't you know, today I walked in my LGS and noticed an old Colt box. At first I paid it no attention but later someone mentioned that it was in fact a Python. I opened the box and was literally taken aback. A never fired, and I suspect never cocked, 4" Python. Original papers, tag, and boxes all present and in excellent condition. Apparently some young fellow inherited it and either not knowing, or not caring what he had, sold it to the store. I could have purchased more than a couple of Rugers for the price, but damn that is one sexy gun.
To say that I am in trouble is an understatement. The bride has made it clear it can come home but only after a significant investment in her wardrobe...to which I of course acquiesced! An investment piece to be sure...my only dilemma now is shoot it or not? I have never owned a true safe queen but this could possibly be one. Opinions welcomed.
I will post better pics when I get it home. Check one off the list!!
