Thanks for all the input,
The search continues; even gunbroker seems short on guns lately!
I always say that if you want something, order it. But it seems that even manufacturers are short right now
However; it seems that it's a bad time to be buying guns right now...unless you want to grossly overpay.
I'm keeping my eyes and ears open, I'm sure I will be very satisfied once I find what I want.
All the Ruger advice has helped a lot, it does get confusing. I think that if I end up with a Ruger, it will be a 3-screw Blackhawk or Vaquero.
I like case-coloring and the new "All Blue" Blackhawks with their black grips are so ugly, no character at all!
I'm not really a stainless man either...
