    Went to my LGS today to check out the used guns.

    The owner was telling another customer about something nice that just came into the store, and brought it out from the back to surprise him. Anyway, out comes a beautiful 4" blued Colt Python! These things are rare as hen's teeth in my part of the country, and I absolutely NEVER see them for sale.

    The customer looking at it said that it was over his budget, so I asked if I could take a look at the gun. I picked it up and checked it out. It was in excellent shape, so I snapped it up on layaway before any of the other customers (who were now extremely interested) could get it.

    Needless to say, I'm pretty happy. Hell, I feel like I just found a unicorn!

    Here is a pic I found on the internet of a gun with the exact configuration, finish, and grips. The gun I am getting dates from about 1974.

    somewhere on Puget Sound
    gosh, lowercase, is it possible you could PM me and let me know if you found this gem at a Puget Sound area shop? I'm sure I won't be poaching in your territory, especially if you're on the other side of the Sound ... I went home not long ago to sleep on a good deal on a 4" King Cobra, and of course, when I went back, it'd been sold the day before.

    Congrats on a great find. As Skidder said, pics please, when you finally get it home!
