CajunBass: I would like to live long enough to just once, shoot a gun, any gun, enough to worry about wearing it out.
Me, too. The point of the thread, though, is not "full wear out and throw away," but "needs work by gunsmith."
I came into this thread expecting Ruger to be a hands-down favorite in living long and prospering without help, but I was wrong. I asked the question to learn some things and I did. Thanks.
