    My Tulsa Gun Show 3" Python Find!

    Well my first Tulsa Show was a blessed trip. I walked up and down the isles for hours upon end looking for a long list of holy grail type Colts and lo and behold.....I look down and what do I see.....a Wilkerson-Carroll 3" Sts Combat Python. After gathering my wits and picking myself up from fainting......I ask the seller what he wants for it. Needless to say his price is on the high side (Don't ask) but after again gathering my wits, we agree on a mutually satisfying price and I should hopefully have it next week. I will post pictures of it as well as the Lew Horton Combat Python I picked up last week. Thank you Jesus!

    Tulsa is an amazing show and a great place to spend your savings. 3" Pythons are special Colts, you did well just finding one.

    Great find!!! That truely is one of my "Grail Guns" I hope to own one day. The 3" stainless Combat and a first year production Python NIB are at the very top of the list. I probably wont ever own either unless I get lucky, but I can dream! Congrats!!!

    Big_gus, while I thought I may one day see this gun online, I never thought I would run into one at a gunshow, so you never know. Keep searching and stay positive.
