I went to a gun show last weekend, and the first table inside the door was lined up with Rugers, mostly single action.  Now I already have a stainless 5 1/2" SBH in .44, a 4 5/8" blue .357 and a stainless 5 1/2" single six.  I was looking at the new single ten and I liked the fiber optic sights because my eyes don't adjust as well as they used to.  Then I saw what I consider the holy grail of ruger single actions, the stainless 4 5/8" .44 special flattop, and it found a home right away.
I didn't even know Ruger made these, and when I got home and found they were a 1000 unit run for Lipsey's, I was glad I didn't hesitate.
I've only put 60 rounds through it so far.  I love the sights and the balance with the steel grip frame.  I kept putting the rounds (Winchester 240 grain cowboy loads and some Federal 200 grain SWC HPs) a little to the left at 25 yds.  I think my trigger squeeze needs a little work so I'll have to put a bunch of different rounds through it to see what it likes best.  Oh darn.
Now I might need a Simply Rugged Sourdough Pancake for it, I think this one has to be floral carved...  This is my new packin' pistol for sure!

Stainless would be really good, and congrats on your quick move, WesinND. Oof da!  However, I will be satisfied with my blue 4 5/8" Flattop Bisley .44 Special. It rides in an El Paso Saddlery Tom Threepersons.
