    Rossi 851

    Is this a quality budget gun?

    I am interested in this gun because it has an adjustable rear sight.
    If anti-gun legislators truly believed that guns kill people, the guns would be on the witness stand and the assailent would be holding the "Exhibit A" sign.

    I have a Rossi 461 that I bought brand new earlier this year. It isn't the prettiest, but I havent had a single problem in over 1000 rounds. If it is a new one, it is covered with a Taurus lifetime warranty.

    Thanks, one last thing.

    I know you can fire a .38 in a .357 magnum, but I read that it is actually detrimental to the gun over time.

    I don't plan on shooting magnum rounds in the foreseeable future, so should I avoid getting a .357 magnum handgun?

    I have honestly never heard that, and fire a fair bit of both .38 special and .357 through mine. You can not fire .357 out of a .38, but i have never heard that .38 out of a .357 is detrimental. Maybe someone else has more knowledge on that.

    Apparently it is when you fail to clean out the cylinders after you do shoot .38 out of a .357. Once they get fouled, .357s won't seat well.

    Got that in another forum.

    Thanks.
