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.

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.
