So, pretty much....it doesnt really matter, at all, and its just personal preference.
I'll probably go stainless, as one of you mentioned, go with what you take pride in, and thats what my lady said as well. Get the one that I will be most proud to own and shoot, haha. I guess she makes sense.
Now, I just need to get over my excitement and get back down to the store on thursday to buy it. And then sit and think "why the hell did I just buy a .45-70"
