I have a Colt SAA .357 that I bought in 1978. I have about 300 rnds through it mixing about 90% .38 Special to 10% .357 Magnums. I only shoot the Magnums if I am out in the field hunting, and even then, I rarely shoot it out there. I think I have fired it twice at coyotes while hunting in the Imperial Valley in SoCal. Shooting the standard .38 Specials out of this gun produces almost no recoil and accuracy is outstanding. This last weekend I shot a 5 shot group that was 3 shots in 1" and 2 fliers opened the group up to 2.25 inches. I say shoot it, but stick with the .38 Specials and the gun will last forever!

I've been collecting Colt firearms for over twenty years now, and in my opinion, the Colt SAA, and the Colt Model 1911, are the two finest, most recognizable, and most successful handguns ever produced anywhere. I have old and new models of each, and while I enjoy shooting my model 1911 pistols, I keep my older models oiled and kept in a safe, along with mu SAA revolvers. They are a very valuable part of my collection, and are not for shooting.

Wow, that's too bad because I won't own a gun I can't shoot. I believe most of those "collectibles" you see in the pages of the American Rifleman are basically useless if you are afraid to shoot them. But, if that's your thing, more power too you.

That Colt SSA was made to shoot .357 magnum so go and shoot it and then shoot it some more.
