Hey guys, please tell me if I did ok on this and also please tell me what do I have as far as desirability goes. Is this a good Ruger to own? I was in one of our local gunshops today and locked in the case was this NIB 50th Anniversary Model .357 priced at $600.00. I asked them what they could do on it and they said $500.00 credit, $465 cash or check. So, I went home, got the checkbook, and the rest is history. Do the new Blackhawks now have aluminum frames? The frame on this one is steel I think. What about grips. XR3, XR3-RED? I don't really want this to be a safe queen. I want it to be a shooter. Am I making a mistake there. I had just started to look for one of these, and I thought it would be harder to find than this. I was surprised when I saw it today. Thanks guys for your imput.
