Skeet,
Before you send in the two Ruger guns, look for a cylinder. Ruger is a parts house, they make frames by casting and buy the rest of the parts from jobbers, made to spec. I bet you a thin dime if you find a 22 cylinder and 357 cylinder, both will fit the guns. Might not, but I bet they will. I have done that twice now and it worked both times without any spitting of lead.

Well, got my Blackhawk converible, 45C & 45 ACP, came with the 4 5/8ths barrel. Absolutely love it, but the .41 will be my der hunting gun. Now have to find 45C loading dies, but no rush as have lot of 45 acp to use in, in fact came across 5 boxes of National Match I had squirreled away. But the temp is stll below 0, -5 right now, just an old softy I guess.

Just back from Vegas, yearly trip so I can donate to their economy. Think I might just start sending them the money, would save on air fare.

Thing I like about big planes is I get to return on at least a pretty regular basis. The little planes get stuck to often for me, as I must get back to my business and FL is not very close to most places I would want to fly to. However, that last goat roping in Vegas by American in January made me wish I was on a private job.

Love the way they schedule flights, in order to return to Wis. was in 4 time zones. Only Delta would send us from Vegas over Wis. to Detroit and then back to Madison.

Am leaving on the 13 for 6 weeks in the south, but we're going in my pickum truck.
