I am Groot!
Translated - awesome acquisition, @TheCollector! You have some serious ‘mad money’ for this hobby!!!
:ROFLMAO:
Wow!..... That's a wild thought.. mad money!
I don't have any mad money for this hobby..... I just send Joe an invoice to be paid. On the bottom I just write " I know where Hunter is & what he's up to."
It's worked for almost 3 years now. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Gorgeous wheelie.

Classic that will be buttery smooth and make you grin.

Very nicely done.

It appears to be pristine.

Beautiful as they always are. From the box I’m guessing 60s-70s era gun. Have you checked the serial number on Colts lookup site to find out what year she was born? An archive letter would also be nice. You’d be surprised what you may find out about it. Not really what it is but who it may have shipped to and where originally.

Call Sandy Garrett for an action job. The only other person I know that was as good with Pythons was Chuck Ries. Sandy is one of the last great Colt wheelgun smiths. My Viper was done by him and slick as snot.

So I dip another toe into the waters of Revolvers. My last firearm venture was getting my first lever action rifle.
Soooooooooooo .... it was only natural that I should find a Colt Python. (don't ask me what the corrilation of the two is other than they both are .357 Magnum)
My FFL called and said it had arrived. When I got there he asked me "you do realize that this gun isn't a semi auto don't you?" :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:.... his sense of humor is a bit strange sometimes.
Anyway.... a shout out to @Cousin Vinny for the nice package.... Even Groot approves.

That's a perfect snake. Love the blued vintage ones. Congrats and you're building one heck of a gun collection I have to say.
