I put an 8" 1979 walnut gripped mirror Nickel unfired NIB .357 Python on consignment last week telling them I wanted $1600 to me firm. The factory oil was congealing in my safe :eek: It sold for $1850 before it went on display ($250 stores cut). I was in it $900 from 1995. More than I would have made in a bond or interest bearing account, other than PLAYING the market. I used the money to buy a cherry newly painted, topped and upholstered MG Midget from an estate sale for $1500. Will make a great run around the village ride for wife and I, we only have Jeeps and big Pick ups so this will be fun! Python for MG :D

Nice gun. I would have loved to have had it at the $1600 mark.

I can say...for sure...I could NOT own a pistol and not shoot it! Never happen. Great gun...great sale! Cool car, too.

what does your posting tell us?

BUY AS MANY QUALITY GUNS NOW AS YOU CAN AFFORD. FORGET THE RIGGED STOCK MARKET.

His posting makes me sick when I think back....About 1995 I was offered a new in the box Python for $400. I turned it down because I already had a Colt in .357. at the time, I didn't see why a man needed another one. Heck, back then 400 bucks was about what my house payment was.

A Python for an MG; sounds like a great deal to me. Enjoy your Midget.

Not bad. I just sold a Walther P5 compact on gunbroker in less than 12 minutes. I could have asked more, but I made a decent profit (found the gun at a gunshow). No need to be greedy. :D

Yup, that's right. Not museum pieces like the English doubles or a Fox shotgun, but good high quality revolvers will bring a better return than gold or silver. Best commodity right now :)

Gold's been WAYYYYY better. From 1999 to now it's jumped from 257 to 1475. I dumped a decent amount of gold lately into some guns, and traded some of those for some others, but not because the guns will be a better investment.

I agree gold IS better. I am in to Silver, I quit buying bags of junk silver coins at $11 oz and started at $7oz. It is almost $40 oz !:D
Course you can't SHOOT silver or protect it without guns in interesting times!

The Lone Ranger would beg to differ with that statement.

Figure out a way to bring that Python you bought into Calif and double your money over night. Neither Gold or Silver will do that :)

That is sickening... Back about 1975 or 76, I acquired an unfired 6" Python, in a Walnut Presentation Box that was a signed "Don Tedford" Model out of Colts Custom Shop... I hung onto it for about a year and let myself get talked into a trade... I have NO Idea what that gun would be worth today...
