SHOT Show 2023 Roundup
Another SHOT Show is in the books, and it’s time for a roundup of some of the products and news that will interest you as RevolverGuys (and Gals–I hope you know you’re always included in that general description, when I use it). So, without further adieu, let’s get to it!
Neat Colt Ads
A RevolverGuy shared these older Colt ads with me, and I really enjoyed looking at them.
Colt 1917 .45 ACP Revolver – Fitz’ed!

Field Report: The 2020 Colt Python
If ever there were a revolver that could be considered “mythical” it would be the Colt Python. The Python has been the “Grail gun” for some, the warmest of memories for others, or some combination of both for many a revolver enthusiast. I must admit the reputation of the Python makes the new, 2020 Colt Python an intimidating gun to write about, especially for a guy with no experience with the original. But I’ll try anyway.
