To the OP, stop thinking about the Colt unless you're willing to scavenge some lead and cook up your own.
Actually buying .45 Colt lead bullets from say, Rimrock bullets, is still way cheaper than factory.... No need to 'cast' ... although someday I'd like to get into that too for even more savings. I figure about $20 per box of 100. I can afford that for the moderate shooting I do.

I wish someone would introduce a decent snubnose five-shooter for it again.
Nice and compact like the CA Bulldog.... Yeah.... that would be nice! Wouldn't mind it in SA either ... But if only DA ... I'd really think about that too!

Just pick yourself up a nice .45 Colt Ruger BH in your favorite barrel length. Your all set. Believe me ... it won't be your 'last' one either .
A clinger. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Single Action .45 Colt (Sometimes improperly referred to by its alias as the .45 'Long' Colt or .45LC). Don't leave home without it. Ok.... the .44Spec is growing on me ... but the .45 Colt is still king.
