Thoughts or Expierence?
I don't see why they would be any different from a Taurus. Now whether or not that's a good thing is up for debate op:
Some people like them, some people don't. The ones that don't complain of broken guns and long repair times (Taurus that is...and a Rossi is a Taurus [or visa versa, I forget]).
You don't hear much about Rossi
I wouldn't. Depending on what you are looking for, hunting around for a good deal on a Ruger or used S&W would be a better route IMO.
I've got a Taurus 94 .22 revolver because the only competitor is the Smith 617 that they want way too much for for what it is, again IMO. Of the lower end revolvers I'd look at Taurus before Rossi or Charter Arms. But Ruger and S&W before any of those.
I had a Rossi snub in 32 for years. Never a minutes trouble. Traded it off and kicked myself ever since!
I've got a 3" .38 snubby, it belonged to my late brother. It's been a solid little gun, nothing special, but sturdy and solid. It shoots very well, putting 158 LRN bullets right to point of aim (it's off with HPs, but not much). I've killed prairie dogs with it out to about 50 yards, even, not bad for ANY snubby.
No, the Rossi isn't as slick as an old Colt Detective Special, or even a Smith Chief's Special, but it's a good little gun. IMHO. Besides, it was my brother's, and he's not around any more. His Rossi IS.
I inherited a 4" SS .357 from my father last year, but haven't really shot it much. Compares to the Taurus I owned years ago in college, nothing special but has huge sentimental value...
Cabela's has em starting at $299
Rossi is owned by Taurus now.
