OK so what store(s) in the SF Bay Area have a good selection of used (consignment) Colt DA revolvers? You know, Pythons, Troopers, Officers Models, Official Police, Diamondbacks etc. (I think I know which gun stores DON'T carry such guns.)

There is a guy from the Bay Area that is always bragging about his Colt revolver finds on another forum. Yet he won't say where he is finding this stuff when asked. And he isn't buying them all either. Seems like he wants it to be his little secret gun shop. He says this Bay Area gun shop specializes in collectable Colt revolvers.

So how about spilling the beans on him. Where are all these great guns? I promise I won't (can't) buy them all. I just want one or two every once in a while! just enough to feed the addiction.

Thanks from the new guy.

Sportsmen's Supply in Campbell gets Pythons in on a regular basis. They're often new ones (which are on The List), and are always very pricy.

I don't see too many Diamondbacks or Troopers, or any Colt revolvers, even at the gun shows.

You might try calling around; there can't be more than a dozen or so gun shops in the Bay Area.

Thanks Max. I've actually spent quite a few dollars at "The Camo" shop. I stopped going there on a weekly basis as I was getting the odd feeling that I wasn't welcome, since I wasn't buying everytime John showed me something.

I'm almost thinking the guy might be referring to someplace just outside the Bay Area. Like in Antioch or Vallejo or some such place I'm not as familiar with.

But every one of the guns I listed above he has seen recently in the past few months. In fact he just bought a NIB Trooper MKIII from the same mystery gun shop.

He is getting his stuff at Contra Costa Collectors Firearms if I am guessing right. It is certainly where I find MY Colt stuff.

Call 1-925-937-3376, they will be happy to help. Prices are high, but not outrageous.

This "secret gun shop" sure sounds a lot like Contra Costa Collectible Firearms located in Walnut Creek.

Whenever I'm in there, they usually have a nice supply of used Colts as well as other goodies.

Didn't know they were a secret - they always have a table at the Cow Palace shows. But yeah, great shop, good guys, really shiny things.

The only sad part is how many of their revolvers are not consignment and therefore no longer saleable in CA http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
