Recently purchased a Python, lifelong dream has been attained. I won’t say what I paid but after shooting it Iwill say it was worth every penny. Also from my perspective the new Python is every bit as good as the original. I have fired 2 examples of the new and 3 of the old.

Sig P225 slightly used in 2010. Newly manufactured (2009) - seems Sig found a stash of parts from the gun that they had stopped making 10+ years before and did another run.
A relative of the older mass produced P6.

Actually the P225 is my third purchase back in time from today, but the only "special" Sig.

The other two Sigs I bought since the P225 are just too similar to ones I already have.

150 rounds through it when I got it, 3 mags, lots of holsters, pacy grips, night sites (that used to work)

Deal of the century and my favorite shooter of the too many Sigs I own.

Bought a 3" bbl. Smith & Wesson model 37 (that's a alloy framed five shot small frame 38 revolver). It dates to 1981.
I immediately sold my 2 inch barrel model 637 which is a much newer generation (2013) version of the same gun which actually had a much nicer trigger pull- because it came from the Performance Center shop at S&W... but I wanted the 3 inch barrel!

This was just a month or so ago.

If you have had the chance to shoot the 37 I'd be interested to know your opinion of the weapon. I carried one of those way back when I got demoted to Detective. I never could get to where I wanted to be with it. Good enough but not where I wanted to be.

It's noticeably more accurate than my 2 inch barrel Smith & Wesson revolvers-- of which I've owned three over the years and frequently shot my brother's as a 4th.

I figured that having a 50% longer barrel and a longer site radius would help a lot when shooting with iron sights, and it has.

With The Crimson Trace laser grips in place I still feel the 37 with a 3 inch tube should be somewhat more accurate, but right now I am not realizing that accuracy due to the difference in DA trigger pull weights --the 1980s era revolver has a 14 pound trigger pull and my newer one that came from the Smith & Wesson Performance Center had only a 7 pound double action pull.

AEA Challenger .357 pcp air rifle. It's pushing 82 grain pellets super sonic. I need to pick out a mold to cast some heavier slugs. The 82gr pellets at 1200 fps deliver 261# at the muzzle. That's about midrange .38 special power, straight out of the box. With the right slug and a little tuning it will do over 400 foot pounds.

I need to get a suppressor for it, the neighbors called the sheriff's office on me and I live on 50 acres in the county. It was pretty funny to me, because when I saw the deputy drive by from the front porch I thought about having to explain that I was shooting a pellet gun. In fairness to the neighbor though, we have new neighbors on the other side that I have almost called the law on. Shortly after they moved in, they started shooting after dark. One night they were doing mag dumps with something like a 10 round 9mm at 11pm, and occasionally you would hear a hand cannon. About 10 minutes after I saw the deputy drive by, I walked out the front door and saw the deputy walking through our side yard. He came through the woods from the neighbor's house. I wasn't too happy about that, but at least he saw my backstop so he really wasn't concerned when I spoke with him.

AEA Challenger .357 pcp air rifle...

The second most recent "gun" that I bought was two years ago, when I bought a .177 spring-piston (break barrel) air rifle with a scope. Got it from a private party seller for $55.

I wanted it for backyard target practice and possible pest control.

I'll tell you -- it is louder than a full length .22 rifle using CCI Quiet rounds or CB long rounds. But it's safer, since the little 7 grain pellets that it fires will lose their velocity in the air so much faster than a 29 to 40 gr. rimfire bullet will.
