Looks like Colt is coming out with a snubby to meet demand for carry guns in a revolver.

Huh, don't guess I need a third Colt Cobra. Even if it is +P rated.

Diamondback in 38 & 22? That ain't no imitation Python, just other snakes :)

I've owned and shot Pythons.
Don't have any anymore and don't miss them.
DO still have a Diamondback in the safe though.

Looking at prices, I think I shoulda got a .22 rather than a .38!

Years ago I paid the highest price I ever paid for a gun and it was a 22 diamondback. $425 and I killed so many sage rats and Jacks with it that God must have wanted it out of my hands. Had to sell it during the spotted owl fugging of my state along with 21 other guns as the depression drug on and my wife's hospital bills piled up.

Years later after recovering I found a nib 22 diamondback for $575. It now has speed loaders and an original Colt holster to ride on my side but haven't shot it, don't want to lose another one..:wink:

2 inch Diamondback in 38 makes a fine carry gun.

Man oh man, you have me counting up my secret hidden ridiculous funds. I still like the 4" for a belt pistol though, the 2" is a fine idea, I'd just have to ditch the Spegels. Too bulky for my taste.

It had better be a lot better than the DS-II I bought 20 years ago, especially at $700.

I heard tell of an ol' timer gun store owner who once said "three inch barrel is for a man that can't make up his mind". That said, I have a snub 686+ that would look, and I dare say feel and shoot, better with another 1/2" of barrel. Also, my little SP101 with 3 1/16" barrel is just right. I am going to slip up on a 3" J frame Smith one day and make it mine.

Owner, not shooter.

3" = cases clear cylinder.

Up to $1250 atm with just less than a day. Not surprised.

Just me but I won't buy a Colt double action to shoot a lot. Nobody repairs them and they go out of time quickly, all except the 22 diamondback and they run forever. Colts lock up on the hand and the bolt in the double actions so as the parts wear it's a gunsmiths nightmare to fit new parts. Colts are very fine weapons but require too much maintenance imho.

Seriously.

:shades:

Had two, wife took them both. One lives on second shelf of end table her side of the sofa, other on her night stand. She keeps them loaded with the 90 grain Hornady Critical Defense. She also stole my second edition Cobra for some hiding spot. At lease the Pythons and others are too big for her to steal. Except for me, wife has good taste in fine equipment.
