This one arrived today.... my first DS and it has a 3 inch barrel in minty 98% condition paid $604 how did i do. Looking forward to shooting it... anyone know where i can get a nice lined left-handed holster ?
You did very well for a 3 in D.S.. As a fellow lefty I did very well getting holsters on EBay Got a Desantis NOS IWB Holster in the bag for 15 dollars and a leather Hip holster with retention strap for 25 dollars.
Everyone.... should i shoot it or not? No box or papers with this one... I Shoot all my Colts except a pristine Python & Diamondback, i'm not the safe queen type of guy. I really take good care of all the Colt revolvers i do shoot, clean oil and wax when needed after range time.
I think you definitely should shoot it. If it were mine, I would avoid two things for sure: 1. Holstering and 2. Shooting cast lead bullets. #2 there is just my opinion. You will get the "raccoon eyes" on all revolvers around the front of the cylinder, but the lead bullets seem to leave a lot more build up and you can't use the lead removal cloth on a blued revolver.
I shoot my Python sometimes, but only with jacketed or plated factor ammo.
