Blued Python has been on the list for awhile, never had the money to purchase one when they did pop out of their safes. But not this time got her! Took an Hr and 45 mins. to get to her, but had a smile on my face all the way home! Yes she is mint! Couple of tiny minuscule marks but I see them as character. When the hammer is cocked it's like the feeling of silk rubbing against each other and the clicking is her saying she's ready and thats what makes her BEAU-TI-FUL!
