A lot of us, including myself, search for that old blackhawk that is mint. But on the other hand, I can really appreciate an old shooter that has developed its share of wear honestly from just being used or carried. I seem to enjoy a slightly worn gun more sometimes as I enjoy it without worrying about messing it up with a nick or ding. The patina of an old Ruger can be a beautiful thing.
