Is there any downside to not having a recoil shield?

caps could fall off.  With the normal recoil sheild, caps can't fall off of the cones.

The Dance has been touted as the Poor Man's Walker. Your impressions?

The .44s weren't much more than a Dragoon.  The frame size was actually smaller than Colt's Dragoon; but was larger than a Navy.  The .36s were comparable to a Colt Navy.
