Did a trade with an old friend, gun dealer this weekend. We were swapping tactical stuff for tactical stuff. But we couldn't quite get to an even trade. I saw this on a bottom shelf and just saw the outer box. When I asked about it, he agreed to let it make the trade even. I LOVE Rugers in 44mag. But I've never owned an Old Army before.

That would be fun to shoot, takes some time to load and can get messy.

High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Years ago I read you could put them in the dishwasher for cleaning. I'm hazy on the details, but it sure sounded like a convenient way to clean things up.
