It was a business decision on their part pure and simple . Not exactly "selling us out ".Colt sells us out just like Smith and Wesson did 20 years ago.
Before I get to involved with this on a Ruger Forum let me say I do own 5 Ruger revolvers and a 22 rifle.
I haven't bought anything S&W in 20 years now I have to add COLT to the list.
When Colt stopped making regular production SAA Revolvers nobody hollered "selling us out ". Colts decision doesn't bother me in the least .
When you go fishing do you like to cast or troll ?
