    I have a thing for inexpensive guns...

    I admit it, I have a special place in my heart for inexpensive handguns. I have a Bersa, I love it, I have a Taurus, I love it, and now I've purchased a Rossi 462...and so far so good!



    First time at the range, at 10 yards...that will work for me.

    My Rossi was my 1st handgun purchase over 20 years ago. I still enjoy shooting it and will NEVER get rid of it.

    Yep, inexpensive does not necessarily relate to cheap as far as quality goes!

    Looks like you have some winners there!

    I just ordered a CZ-82 in 9x18 Makarov. $217 with extra mag. The gun has a great rep. The ammo is between .380 - 9mm in power. I'm planning on making it a "project gun" and stripping it, giving it a shot of matte black DuroCoat, and find some nice wood grips. I may even gold plate the trigger just to be tacky! I'm interested in just how far I can go with customizing it.

    Cheap guns are a lot of fun when you get one that works well.

    I prefer to think of my Kel-Tec's and Taurus' as "value" guns.

    Hey I agree with what others are saying. Inexpensive does not mean "cheap". Yes I love my S&Ws but I also love my Rugers, Taurus' and Kel-Tecs.

    I love my Rossi's.
    Got two m68's and a 461. The rougher M68 is my truck gun and its extremely accurate. Good enough for me!

    That is why I said "inexpensive", cheap is something completely different.
