USFA Omnipotent?

Gentlemen and Ladies,
I really like the looks of this single action revolver, specifically the prawl-grip, does anyone own one or have fired one? I hear only good things about the company, but these cost A LOT and I'd like a little more intel before shelling out the cash. I wonder about the accuracy, the capacity of the weapon to fire all sorts of different NON-COWBOY loads, and how the recoil feels with that 1878-style grip. Any opinions?
I'm a firm believer in practice and versatility, so this pistol would get maintained scrupulously, but fired a lot, carried a lot, rained on, snowed on, toasted by the sun, etc.

Don't have one. Have heard of availability problems pertaining to them

The following is a link to a thread on Sixgunner.com discussing the issue

The last I heard, they were out of production and unavailable. Uncomfortable to shoot in my experience.
