To each his own...

The ROA's that they talked about are fine guns, but extremely overpriced. I would never buy one.
I'm quite careful on this forum not to "poo-poo" what others may like or own. I do have my preferences. The ROA is a modern pistol. It's a Blackhawk that shoots BP. To get this kind of quality, you have to pay for it. You simply can't buy a modern pistol (worth shooting) for $175. You can buy a BP reproduction pistol made in Italy for this amount. If you buy an Italian reproduction of any firearm that shoots smokeless rounds, you will pay MUCH more than $175. Overpriced? I don't think so. This is not to mention the ROA is made right here in the good 'ol US of A. If you don't own one or never would buy one, it would seem this opinion and conclusion comes from no experience in ever shooting an ROA. You are entitled to your opinion, but I'm scratching my head as to the basis of where you draw this conclusion.

I take no offence, nor intend any.
