Revolver Match

The seasoned master shooter, long in years, young in spirit, continues to work his art, of bullet to paper as he has for most of his life. There is an inner silence, the stoppage of time, as he raises the pistol as he has done, hundreds upon thousands of times before. Like a meditative archer he stands confident, silently, patiently awaiting the subconscious ignition, brilliant flash and jolting recoil as the target is obscured by smoke.

The Exquisite Colt Python

The Colt Python is a double action, large I-frame handgun chambered for the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge originally developed by Smith & Wesson. In fact, the only true ".357 Magnum" is the original one developed by Smith & Wesson in the 1930s. All others were "chambered for .357" but the fact is that ".357 Magnum" is an S&W trade name and not just a caliber designation. There are no true ".357 Magnums" other than those produced by Smith & Wesson on their large "N" frame. This is why Colt Pythons have a "CTG" (cartridge) after the caliber stamp on all their barrels.
