Greetings, Gents! A new thought - for me, anyway ... Want to get and start using a new gun as primary self-defense piece. Right now, my, "mini-arsenal," is all 6" I/E frames and I want something I can hide under a sports coat - if I want to. I don't use a gun for any sort of duty anymore, so I'm not limited to the Chief's permission or anyone's policy but my own. I'm thinking in terms of a .45 auto - probably in steel and certainly a Colt! Or a 2X revolver. These are my questions for us ... I've been a Python fan forever but I'm getting scared of the timing and advancing age of these guns and just don't know enough about the new ones - even if there ARE new ones!? I just don't subscribe to the 38 special anymore ... not enough horse power. That leaves the Colt Lawman from the 70's. I've read many times that these were created to NOT have the timing problems of the Python and they're certainly large and stout enough to live with 357 loads. How hard is it to find a first-model Lawman in 2"? Does anyone out there use one of these guns? Accuracy? IS the action as strong as they say? Isn't the cylinder counter-bored for magnum rims? These are fixed sights - so where do they actually zero? Information/thoughts, please? Over?
