    Rossi Revolver

    I spotted a used Rossi 38 revolver at my local gun shopped that might just be the ticket for my wife. I was surprised at the smooth action and really like it. My only concern is quality and, after reading several posts, can't get a definitive feel for what everyone thinks. I'd like to hear from everyone and get their views. My wife doesn't shoot very often so this gun will not get a ton of use.

    I have .357 Rossi, really like it. I carry it myself almost everyday.
    If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!

    Owned a Rossi .357 snubby for a while. Should have never sold it. Shot a few hundred .357 and .38 through it without a problem. It was a very nice revolver.

    If the Shop stands behind their Guns and makes it Right if there is a problem, go for it. I had a 357 Rossi that was great. We sold new Rossi's at are Shop and they never came back with problems.

    My first "real" defensive gun was a stainless Rossi .38. Years ago.

    Got a GREAT deal on it, and it was of decent quality and was reliable. Carried it in a cheap nylon Uncle Mike's. The only gun I ever had to go to in a defensive situation. {Only one shot was fired, no serious injuries}

    One of my friends ended up needing a defensive firearm, and all he had was a Raven .25, so I gave him my .38 special. He still has the Rossi and swears by it.

    I've got 2 model 68's. Late 80's production. Never a problem. Good little guns for the money IMO.

    I have a .357 Rossi snubbie which rides in the console of my truck. No problems whatsoever.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Its no snubby, but I have a Rossi stainless 6" chambered in .357 Mag, that I bought several months ago. I changed out the rubber grips with some aftermarket rosewood grips that I found on Gunbroker. Its alot of fun to shoot at the range, and quite accurate.

    Hello everyone this is my first post and I'm very happy to find this forum.
    I just picked up a Rossi firearm in the form of a 90's vintage model 68.
    It is blued and sports a three inch barrel with nice wood grips and appears to have been unfired.

    I had a model 10 'Smith in the past and this little revolver reminds me alot of the 'Smith.

    I really like the balance and feel that it is made as well as any other make out there. I'm looking for a good holster for ccw and will, after shooting and proving this revolver, use as ccw.

    This gun is as pretty as a speckled pup and I feel fortunate to have found it!
