Uh huh, and Obama is such a better choice. The only way to improve things is to vote Green or Libertarian. Democrats and Republicans have lost their way.
You would have to be drunk on stupidity to think there is a difference between Rs & Ds.orlin sellers
This image is all wrong anyone wearing their Brooks Brothers suit isn't shooting themselves in the foot by voting Republican. No, instead they are gaining the ability to place that wing-top loafer onto the necks of the 99% in so voting...
That Colt Python ain't cheap, either.

Greg Camp: "That Colt Python ain't cheap, either."That Colt Python is certainly cheaper than the six lives it may be used to end before it's batteries of death (.357 magnum cartridges) are replenished.
How about the lives of good citizens that could be saved by using the revolver in self defnese? Of course, there are plenty of cheaper .357 Magnum guns that will work just as well in that application.
You do have the valid point that said revolver was used for many years by numerous police agencies across the U.S.An interesting fact is that they where relatively inexpensive for many years, due to a boycott by armed-civilians, (gun "owners") in response to then President of Colt calling for a national FIREARMS LICENSING system. (A step in the right direction, but I still am of the opinion that licensing mere civilians with no ties to any State agency, or any interest in public security, and who convey no public authority to possess small arms, is a fundamentally flawed and dangerous idea)
E.N., you're allowed to be of whatever opinion you want, no matter how idiotic. That's the joy of freedom. Pythons are expensive because they're finely tuned and well-crafted weapons. As far as I can tell from your comments, you're fundamentally flawed and dangerous to American liberty, but I won't try to ban your speech. See the difference?
Apparently the nation as a whole disagrees with you EN. Everywhere gun laws are changing, changing for the fundamental freedoms of the peoples desire. And the laws have change dramatically in the last 20 years with four states, not one but four not requiring a license to possess and carry a gun now and a few others that don't require a license to carry openly. States are moving to let those that do carry the choice on how to carry, openly or concealed.In Texas back in 1995, the crime rate was higher than the national average. In 1996 the license of private citizens began. By the year end of 1996 the crime rate dropped 50% and continues to steadily fall every year. Yet the population of licenses continues to grow. Now you can keep a gun in your car with you without a license in Texas. Car jackings have dropped dramatically because of that change in law.The authority comes from federal law. Then the authority is extended by state law. Or local law in some states. I am also authorized by being a US citizen who has wronged no one, licensed by the state of Texas to keep and bear arms on my person to which I do everyday, everywhere I go.I dont have to have a license to carry a long gun, shotgun or rifle, openly loaded or unloaded either on my person or in my vehicle and thats been Texas law for its entire history.And just as a side note EN as this may get your goat as well. The state of Texas does not limit how many guns I can keep on my person, what size and because of my classification, either a semi-auto or a revolver single or double action. As long as I can conceal them I can carry as many as I want. They range from .22 to .50 cal. But this is just Texas law, other states differ in their requirements/restrictions.
