^^^ Yeah and here I have been wanting a Gunnison and Griswold for a shooter! Ummmm maybe not seeing as how they are all brass. But I guess if they wear out they will just be display pieces.

You don't have to worry much about steel frames. I have yet to damage a steel frame Colt or Remington. I wouldn't mind having a G&G myself but it wont get used much and only with light loads.

You have to really work at it or abuse a brasser to wear it out.
Keep your loads light and you'll be fine.
That being said, for another $50.00-100.00 you can get a steel frame that WON'T wear out.
