Be aware it's the hottest load we have ever found commercially made. It is very fun in the ruger tho. Biggest fireball and muzzle blast you'll get! Had to repair several m1 carbines cuz that ammo. Best reguards and hope you have nothing but fun.
    Thank you. I plan on having a lot of fun with it and posting all about it.

    Also, welcome to the forums!

    Grips have arrived. The Blackhawk has shipped and is currently sitting at DFW airport waiting to fly!

    And here we go again. I woke up this morning to not one, but three delivery exceptions on my Blackhawk! Two mechanical failures before take-off, delaying it 9 hours, and one mechanical failure in flight between take-off and arrival. Tracking is now showing no scheduled delivery information. It was supposed to be here Friday so that I could have picked it up. I'm guessing I won't be able to pick it up until Monday or Tuesday now. I have yet to have one gun I have ordered to be delivered on time. Something has happened every single time.

    Tracking still shows it sitting in the same place for 27 hours now.

    Edit: Just popped up as out for delivery with no updates in-between. Lol!

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to pick it up until Monday. I'm working all weekend. I will post lots of pics though.

    I never had a wheel gun in 30 carbine, but I like the idea. I did have a semi auto like the one in this link.

    It got away from me many years ago and for the past ten or so years I have been looking for one I could afford and put my hands on before buying. Some how I thought that might help you feel better about waiting a few more days for yours.

    It does make me feel better! Thank you!

    I was looking at those Automags as well, they are just a bit out of my price range right now though. Someday.
