The CA laws churn my stomach. It’s a flat out infringement. Many fine guns are discontinued, it’s the nature of the gun business. Anyway, you need to decide if a 8” anaconda is for you. It’s a big gun and muzzle heavy. The 6” has IMHO better balance. I have both an 8” python with full underlug and a MKV trooper 8” with little underlug. I like the lighter trooper MKV better.
