Even gun-unfriendly states conceded the point and eventually they all struck down the requirement, Maryland being the last to do so in 2015.
Thank you for the information. I like filling holes in my knowledge base!!

Got an RIA 1911 last year and two spent cases came with it but no other firearm I've ever purchased had them.

If it doesn't exhibit poor fit (including small internal part fitting) and finish like most Ruger revolvers of the last decade, I'd be fine with dirty.

New to firearms in June 2017. Did not but any ammo only gun. I told salesman wanted to take safety course with wife first.While reading owner's manual and learning about purchase i noticed it was fired thought I got cheated.Found explanation on web about test firing weapons. It turns out my Gun shop Bob's little sport shop in Glassboro New Jersey,had a great price for my Gun even when compared to on line pricing.I checked several items in store and online Bob's were equal or better.

And revolvers don't often leave spent casings at the scene...

Somewhere in a little room tucked in the back of many state capitals are probably millions of spent cases in little brown envelopes.

So OP how does it shoot?

If I received a new Revolver, and it Wasn't Dirty, I would be worried that it slipped past it's Proof Firing. Enjoy your new GP

The brown envelope was the best way to establish a gun’s birthdate. Now how will we know? Do they print a date on the box label now? If not, why not?

And, since there’s less labor now without a person documenting the test fire, do they pass along the cost saving to us?

That's good to hear, about the dusty/dirty GP 100 I mean. Mine was very dusty but it cleaned right up with Ballistol. I checked down the barrel before shooting it and all was well. Mine was also me to me for: 1. Christmas. 2. Early birthday present (March). 3. Retirement at end of March. 4. I've read Ruger has stopped production on the .327 Fed Mag and I wanted one. I got the 6" barrel.

Is this a fact, that Ruger has stopped production of 327 Federal Magnum revolvers?
