When SASS happened they shot old west looking pistols and eschewed the Ruger, which, of course is far better than any of the others.
You need to do some research before you go spouting off untruths. When SASS was started Rugers were more easily available than repros. SASS rules allowed Ruger Blackhawks and ROA's. They still do, even tho some single actions and pump shotguns that were used up until 1899 are not allowed. IMHO they should not be allowed because SASS rules state firearms in use from 1860-1899.
