I've noticed Cobra prices have moderated...not dropped by a huge amount but the market price is down some...maybe the result of the King Cobra on the market. I haven't seen much, if any changes on King Cobra prices but also haven't seen that many on the market either. I've only seen one King Cobra Target in a gun store...and I bought it! It was a local dealer who treats me right and gave me a decent deal on it...below MSRP but not by a huge amount.
If I had $3k to spend I'd look for both a 6" and 4 1/2" Python...because...well...they're Pythons!
