OK, so, I learned this weekend...Do NOT shoot your 44 mag with the butt of the grip resting on a stump. About 12 rounds or so in, I was missing a piece of the grip. Not a huge piece, but enough...grrrr... Anyone know if Ruger would consider this a warranty issue??? Literally, this was my second time out shooting this handgun and have barely put 70 rounds through her. Comments???
