Entry for August 19, 2008


To me, the Colt Anaconda always looked like a Colt Python on growth hormone and steroids. It had the same lines as the Python, but never any hint of the elegance.

I sold my Colt Anaconda .44 Magnum shortly before I retired. I originally purchased it with the hope of using it during the state of Illinois annual pistol season for deer. Finding the time and a suitable place to hunt proved to be major obstacles, so the Anaconda never saw more than a few trips to the pistol range. Even though it is heavy enough to shoot full magnum loads accurately, I would have needed substantial range time to gain the skills needed to take a deer with it.

Colt dropped double-action revolvers from their product line, making the Anaconda more of a collector’s piece than a shooter, so I took my profit from the sale and moved on. If an opportunity arises to pistol hunt deer, there are other options available in the gun safe.
