I agree with Lloyd, look around and buy a older Ruger.

Yet another vote for used ruger... they really are just about impossible to beat. My 44 has survived an overcharged reload (not my reload) without a scratch, only damage was some numbness in my hand.

Saw a Ruger go for $425.00 locally. Looked almost new.

Where is the ammo?
