I'm with you, Bullseye! To answer your question, don't get rid of anything you like! The pain of paying for the .41 will be long forgotten the first time you pull that trigger.
As to naysayers of the .41 magnum, Try it...You'll like it! And if you handload, there's not a bit of cost difference between loading for the 41 and the 44. Yeah, there are a few more bullets to select from in the 44 and factory ammo IS cheaper, but if we all only shot 30-06 and 44 mag, the world would be a pretty boring place.
I've been waiting for a .41 mag lever gun for awhile. I'm excited about it, too.
