Hi everybody,

I want to buy a Ruger revolver KBP-7...

I wanted the stainless one ( about $ 600.00 ), which I prefered.

I was offered a blue one ( about $ 450.00 ) .

What is your advice ?

Hold out for the stainless if it's really what you want. I love the stainless guns for clean up. Blued shoots just as good, though. I just think if you want the stainless and you settle for the blued, the want ain't goin' away. That there is experience talkin'. :D

I know exactly of what you speak! Better advise is hard to find.
Get what you want, or you will never be happy with what you got. I can say this with a certain amount of experience too.

I don't want to take away from this thread, but it took me years, and cost a lot of necessary money, before I actually dug in, and got what I wanted...exactly what I wanted, and I ain't looked back.

If you want a stainless, be patient.
If you want it bad enough, it will happen.

I think that I will wait a little more and buy the stainless one, maybe I could find find one like yours.

Great piece of collection.

Thank you for sharing.

If you buy a blue one and you're heart is set on stainless, you'll always pine away for your first love. Hold out for the ONE and she'll give you a lifetime of loving in return.

Move aside Dear Abby, a new love doctor is in town. :p

Gerald....After re-reading my above post, I had meant to say, "I have spent a lot of un-necessary money", by buying what I thought I could get by on, and not on exactly what I wanted.

If you really want a stainless, hold out until you can get it. If you want to have it engraved, hold out until you can find someone who can do it your way.

I suspect "delayed gratification" is the key here.....it is much more real than instant gratification, if it's not exactly right at the moment.

Respectfully, Russ...

Wait for the one you really want, or you won't really be happy with the one you get.
