    You mean like a Rolex that doesn't keep accurate time? Not sure the full extent of it but I know that was a thing.

    Guns were made to shoot. Several years ago, I met my good friend for the first time. After we got to know and have trust in each other, we showed each other some of our prized guns. He has much nicer stuff than me.

    For his 60th birthday be bought himself a Colt SAA, 45 Colt (of course), 4 inch barrel, ivory grips, nickel finish with full engraving and fire blued screws. He handed it to me and the first thing that I noticed was the front of the cylinder was black. He shot this thing! I knew right then that we would become good friends. I shot the gun later that day and have several times since.

    Now, he is waiting on a Browning Hi Power Renaissance to be delivered. He won it on GB for $3700. It will be shot within minutes of it's arrival. I can't wait to shoot it, too.

    After watching this video I am convinced that Mark O’keefe had just received word prior to filming that the $100,000 donation check from Colt had just cleared the bank.

    That’s fine.

    The problem with the Python seems to be that doing what you describe actually breaks a $1500 gun.

    Yeah, they're still making history. Too bad it's the wrong kind.

    Sadly this isn't the first time Colt bungled everything up. Want to know why the HK is called the SOCOM handgun and not Colt? Because HK won the competition by default when the Colt entry broke during the trials and couldn't be repaired.

    They better be working 24-7 to get this bullcrap resolved.
