Stainless Loaded, then. Just buy an adjustable for it. I wish there was a stainless RO. Maybe it'll come soon.

The Loaded Target models come with adjustable sights. I have a Longslide and a friend of mine has a 5 inch model - both are great shooters. I use my Longslide as my bowling pin gun and it performs flawlessly...

In my area, SS has a less tendency to rust (but it still will). Early years of SS, there were problems with galling, but today, if you keep the firearm properly lubed, not so much.

Most factory bluing is an oxide in itself.

Shooting SS vs Blued is not the problem, it is how things are assembled together.

Agreed Dan. The early stainless guns did have a real tendency towards galling as stainless has more inherent friction than carbon steel. The alloys used in modern guns seem to have solved that problem so I have no qualms about shooting stainless guns a lot. I do use a bit more lube on the rails though. I'm in the same boat as you climate wise and with the heat & humidity here in the SE - even stainless will rust without proper care...

A friend got a new Les Baer matched frame & slide. He simply put the slide on the frame and ran it back and forth a few times. Locked up due to galling (no lube). We had to get a rubber faced hammer and beat it off. Still need to lube stainless, unless a high polish on all bearing surfaces would work.

high grade stainless is nearly non-machinable, so all stainless guns are made with low grades of stainless metal, so they suck, basically. If rust is an issue for you,disasemble the pc, use rubbing alchohol to degrease it completely, apply two coats of car paste wax on the exterior surfaces. Oils attack wax, so use Lockease Graphite to lube the high friction areas. I only bother with all this on carry guns, the rest just get a fresh shot of WD-40 prior to firing them some more. This regimen has worked fine for over 20 years and 200k rds of shooting. Before that, I used Hoppe's Gun oil, but I was just an ignorant teenage back then.
