Breaking a Barrier

I own a variety of things that go *boom*. I have semi-automatic handguns. I have shotguns. I have rifles.

There is a category missing from this list… Revolvers. Just never got into them, despite the BF’s love of them, and despite having been privileged to shoot many beautiful revolvers belonging to many of my friends. Besides, I figured that gave me at least one category of things that I just wasn’t going to even look at when at the LGS or the gun shows. A “safe zone”, so to speak.

this little beauty followed me home yesterday. And I think it’s a definite keeper!

It’s a 4″ Colt Python. Serial number dates it to 1980, and it’s just gorgeous! A little muzzle wear and a few scratches, likely from being carried in a holster, but aside from that the bluing is in great shape. The grips are nice and tight and without any chips or dings. I can’t wait to get out this weekend and put some rounds through it.
