    Purchased a Rossi R98 .22 revolver last week. An absolutely beautiful gun with great grips, feel, sights and the trigger is every bit as good as the one on the model 65LS Lady Smith that I just bought for my wife. UNFORTUNATELY, it was defective, and would lock up on every cylinder load up. Local gunsmith tried a couple of things to fix it, but to no avail. It is a crying shame, because the gun had so many great things going for it, so I gave up on it and sent it back today and ordered a Taurus 990 in blue finish with the ventilated rib to replace it. I feel sure a replacement R98 would have been fine, but I kind of soured to it and decided to try the Taurus instead. I'll let you know how I like that one when it gets here. Real shame because the Rossi was truly a beautiful gun with unbelievable features for the money. You may want to give one of them a try.

    That was my choice for an inexpensive house gun. A very well made gun that is very easy to shoot. Mine resides on the nightstand. Here's a picture:

    If my mom {71} did not have her CPL, and was looking for a house firearm, this would be it.
    Lighter than a .357 mag, for which would be unnecessary.

    The LCR has the best trigger, and the best grip. Use lay away, or buy used. Don't buy second tier guns.. your life might depend on it.
