    Why buy something to lock in a pitch dark safe? There - you're talked out of it.

    I'm looking at it from an investors perspective. I have a gazillion Uberti's and Rugers to shoot! Cliche? Yes, but facts never-the-less. I hate to throw it out there but this company's rejects are probably a higher quality than what Colt is churning out now. And that's assuming you can even find a new production pistol. I don't know a lot yet about this company but what I've read so far...is impressive!

    To your point, I would love to find one that has suffered a slight temporary depreciation in value(used)...so I could play around with it a little without swiping four or five hundred bucks off its worth with one pull of the hammer!

    I have figured out.. the model that Bud's has in stock is the "two piece" walnut grip version. Not a huge fan if that but its still a fantastic revolver.

    Save the $$$ you really don't need another SAA seriously, for the price you can get 3 Uberti's. Investor wise if it was going to be worth 10 gazillions dollars down the road but it but it wont , a few grand probably. Be happy with what you have.... shoot what you got. Is it want or a need? What azshot said above.

    Investing in modern made guns is high risk. If you don't think the guns are good for shooting why buy? If you want to make money, invest in blue chip stocks or right now, short term bond funds. Standard may go out of business, and then for a brief period their $1800 guns will sell for $2500. So what? If you time the market just right, you make a few hundred. Or if you hang onto them 20 years, maybe make a little more. You're not going to retire on the $1000 you make profit, adjusted for inflation. "Losing money" on using one? Ever buy a new car and kept it more than 2 years? You'll lose thousands. Again - you asked to be talked out of it for "putting it in the safe"

    I guess I should have said- "partly from an investors perspective"!

    All great points and something to ponder.

    If you buy it, shoot it; if you're not going to shoot it, don't buy it.

    Best regards,

    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.
