Coupla observations on the ROA
I developed a healthy respect for the Ruger designers when I got my first ROA. (Sometime around 1982 an older version of the Stainless sister from 95) They made a C&B pistol that is intended to be the pinnacle of revolver performance.
It acts more like a black powder, multiple shot, shooting tool. Every part of it (Accept for that stupid loading lever which is like three individual and unrelated parts which happen to be flying in formation) is designed to optimize the shooting experience.
If I were going to use a black powder revolver for home defense (And I NEVER would) It would be an ROA.
