I entered a few guns into Gallery of Guns and did a search and they beat prices by far (on Ruger Blackhawks/others) of anyplace in FLA was the Sunshine State Armory, might well be worth the drive. It is located in Zephyrhills FLA.

They are building an online store, but here is a FB link.

    Unfortunately they were also the victims of a gun shop robbery.

    Man, it does pay to shop around. I saw prices from $387 all the way to $550 fer a Ruger American 9mm, most in the 400s...................item #8608

    About 5 hours from here.

    Wish they had a Rural King around here. They had the best prices (although limited selection) I've seen......

    It IS top heavy, but it's also built like a freakin' tank! And the good news of it being built like that is that Big Chief won't break it! :rotflmao:

    Joking aside, I like the looks of that one. And with all that added weight, it would be a putty cat to shoot.

    Made to compete for the military contracts. Looks like they did some good things to it.

    I like the looks of it too - but there are a lot of folks who don't. Its all well and good that BC can't break it; but the REAL question is, can a Marine do it in? :jester:
