Hi, everyone, new RoughRider owner and new member. I have cruised this site several times, mostly because i am a Rossi owner, and now a RoughRider owner. As a brief background, i am 66 years old, have owned quite a few guns in my lifetime, but just a few now, "life" happens, finances always interesting! Anyway, i have owned a Ruger Superblackhawk and Single Six, both stainless. So, i can appreciate "nice" guns. I no longer own those two, unfortunately, and now that i am semi-retired and on fixed income, will not be able to replace them. However, i am ok with that! I learned long ago to appreciate each firearm for what it was, not what someone else thought it ought to be. And that was when i still had more expensive guns. Basically, i don't have much patience with "gun snobs", i find them to be less than open-minded and very impractical. Every gun is a tool, different tools for different jobs, appreciate them for what they are! Some of you will understand this statement, some may not, but it is the truth: i enjoy owning my less expensive guns just as much as i enjoyed owning my more expensive guns! Ok, with that out of the way, i have a question about the simulated case hardening, for example on the "Johnny Boy" model. My new RoughRider frame is the basic black (painted), it should be easy to touch-up small scrapes and such. Not sure about the simulated case-hardening. Do any of you know how (relatively) durable it is, and also how one would be able to touch-up that finish. Thanks in advance for any of your comments, you all seem to be very good fellas on this forum, thanks for allowing me to be a part of it! Also, i hope that together, we can all maybe make this site a little more active, i will definitely contribute anything in the future that i may have to offer!
