Well, as I said earlier, I had a Blued Python that I bought in 1965 for the beastly sum of $137.00 and kept it until last year when I bequeathed it to my grandson. I didn’t shoot it much, maybe 300 rounds that fired away flawlessly and on target. My brother bought a Trooper the same day I bought the Python for $118.00. “That damned Python is too much money for me”. He sold his quick in 1974 so his Trooper wouldn’t be lost in the divorce for I don’t know how much and he didn’t tell me he was selling it. So you see, the Python is a better gun than the Trooper. I put my deductive talents to work on this one.
