I dug this gun out for a range session this morning. Bought in 1987, CCH in 1989, 19,641 fired through it after this morning's work out. Cleaned and oiled after each range session. Protected by my 50/50 mix of Three-In-One oil and automotive motor oil.
And this Ruger .44 Special (bottom gun) has been carried in a leather holster daily for over two years, has around 6,500 rounds fired through it.
