    That's business as usual for every Academy in my area. I doubt there's enough Python's in the wild at this point to affect supply. I would imagine...

    FWIW, I believe the two "dings" circled in red inside the crane are poorly executed VP and inspector stamps, respectively. At least that's what they...

    Can/do dealers like Bud's get their guns directly from Colt, or do they order through distributors? If Bud's is placing orders directly with Colt...

    FWIW, Hickock45's gun is PY002014, which is not a particularly low SN. Mine is 21XX, and the insides were anything but dry when I removed the...
