    I poked around again ..because of this thread...to see if they can be transferred by an FFL in ILLinois. Haven't found anything definitive yet..yay or nay...I suppose I'll have to check out the gun stores here to see if they plan on stocking them. I could be a buyer of the silver one.

    I have a Rough Rider with a case hardened finish that I have had since 2013 the still looks and shoots like new. I have no need for the Wrangler except for one thing that nobody mentions. I would like one only for the transfer bar that prevents an accidental discharge if it is dropped. I dropped my Rough Rider a few years ago with 6 rounds in it and I didn't have the safety on. It fell on the hammer and it discharged with the bullet striking me in the stomach with a minor injury. It scared me because it could have been much worse.

    That scares me...and I didn't even do it. Did you need medical attention?

    No. I didn't know I had been hit until I saw blood on my pants. I pulled down my pants and saw the cartridge in my underwear. It made a small hole when it entered and exited my belly. Other than bleeding and scaring me, it didn't do any harm.

    Like when I forgot to deploy the side stand on my motorcycle after riding nearly 50 years and dropped in front of a bunch of people, we get careless and forgetful when our mind wanders to other things and we forget the basics.

    WOW!! That is terrifying and quite an awakening! So glad you are OK!! Our shooting hobbies sure can have very serious repercussions...

    .

    I quite often mention the number of times that I have been to a shooting where the 22 was involved and the fact that many times the shot person really is in no pain and kind of confused as to IF they have been shot.
    the lack of blood exiting the body (or inside if nothing major is hit) is not unusual at all.
    then of course rarely but it does happen the person is dead right there, we usually just packed the shot person up and headed to the hospital as soon as possible and let the surgeon/doctor determine IF there is any life threatening issues inside the body, we have had a few bleed out while talking to us with these small calibers.

    When I think of a 22 bullet wound I come back to President Reagan's shooting. He had a close call with death due to the location of the wound and like you say, they weren't initially sure if he was hit or how bad it was.
