Was crowded as expected. 223 ammo was insane still at a buck a round on average.
Bought a SW shield for 449, really was not planning on it as I have a walther pps, but you know how it goes.
Almost bought a python that looked never fired,. It was 1969 vintage, blue with a 4" barrel. They wanted 1750 firm. It had no box. What do you guys think?

It's hard to tell about the Python.

I would never expected Python prices to escalate to the point they have either...

Five years from now...I bet you kick yourself for not buying it. :supergrin: In my experience...depending on condition...old Colts don't go down in value.

Nice grab on the Shield at a fair price. I have not seen any around my neighborhood since I bought mine. It must have been hard to walk away from the Python though, I'd imagine. I have a soft spot for a pristine copy. 4" is my favorite. I think I probably would have bought it on impulse.

I've got a 6" blue python, that is "never fired"(yeah right). But it does sure look it anyway.
So the 4", while tempting, was not screaming "buy me" too bad...but if it had the box etc......

My next python will be a 6" SS version.

And I much prefer my PPS to the Shield. I will probably end up selling/trading it.
