    We have seen time and time again how the first production run of a brand-new gun design can be plagued with issues. It's one thing for a manufacturer to test a couple dozen prototypes and...

    Prior to the Internet I held this belief that gun enthusiasts were a special breed of people who hung together and didn't try to screw one another. You'd see the occasional joker at a gun show, but...

    My biggest question is... what will this do to the fellow who sells fake Python boxes and papers? Will he have to find a way to make fake plastic new Python boxes as well now?

    I asked my local gun shop about them yesterday. They insisted that these haven't even hit distributors yet. I tried arguing with them but then quickly decided it was a waste of my time to do so.

    This morning there was a Gunbroker seller who still had 68 Pythons in stock. I checked again in the late afternoon and his ad was gone. I don't think Colt has had as hot a seller as this since the...

    Flitz claims it's safe on blued finishes. I used it on a blued Series 70, and while it brightened up the flats I also saw that it slightly thinned the finish on the edges and around the rollmarks. It...
