I have two of the Rossi wheel guns in a .38 Special, went to the website and checked both by serial number and they are both good to go. Thanks for the heads up, one is a 5 shooter with a 2" barrel and the other is a six shooter with a 4" barrel, both very good CC guns. However the 6 shooter is much more accurate at 25 yards than the 5 and I use the +P ammo in both. I love them both.

Yari - here's a bit of info cut from a Wikipedia page about Taurus.  I knew there was some affiliation between the two brands but didn't really understand what it was.

In 1997 Forjas Taurus purchased the rights & equipment to manufacture Rossi brand revolvers. They currently manufacture three .38 Special models and four .357 Magnum models under the Rossi name, manufactured in São Leopoldo, Brazil.

the first 3 shops i checked said "sold out". either they are limited production or just not widely carried.

my dad forced my hand this weekend. he took the 357 back that i was using for a cabin sidearm to give to my sister.(this sill baffles me for many reason i won't get into) now i'm seriously in the market for a cabin pistol. i'm long on 357 shells, but i'm leaning toward a semi.

Well, you could sell your 357 ammo to your sister . . .    ##$%#12    Only if you're on good terms with her though . . .

Taurus is probably the strongest in the lower end of the price range for .357 revolvers.  Since you have really deep pockets (isn't that what Bo said?) you could go drop a couple grand on a Colt Python.  I have a S&W 686 with a 5" barrel - really a nice handling & nice shooting gun if you don't mind a little extra weight.  A bit higher than a Taurus but still in three digits unlike the Python.  Ruger's GP100 is also an option at a similar price to a 686.

But then if you open the semi auto can 0' worms, you got choices galore in calibers, brands, frame sizes . . . .

I have a stainless steel Rossi five shot revolver with 2" barrel I keep in the tractor.  Nice little gun.

Yari, for a camp gun the Taurus "Judge" public defender is perfect. You have choices, .410 shotgun ammo, the defender ammo has 3 copper discs and "00" buckshot, at 20 yards all shot will cut through a 55 gal steel barrel, (been there, done that) OR you can use the .45 ACP ammo in hollow point or the defender ammo that is available. Regular .410 ammo in 7 or 8 shot game loads are good also for snakes, all the others will take down a bear at 40 yards and under. If you need more than 5 shots you better be fast on your feet.

thx for the ideas.

where did the idea of DEEP POCKETS  come from?   @--0--0117 @--0--0117 look what you started Bo @--0--0105 heck, i still have to work to make sure you all get your ss checks @--0--0100

i'm not going to go nuts. it's going to be a worker. i'm leaning toward a semi. i've carried the 357 on my side for 15 years and only played john wayne one time and scared the crap out of the invader. (*&^&%# (*&^&%# it will take some abuse since i use it for woods and field work, but will have very limited actual use. it's a security blanket in case i become the hunted

gut- i'm surprised you can hit a 55 gallon drum at 20 yards w/ the .410? i bought some bird shot for my .44 and it was a total spray w/ a 7" barrel. at 10 yards i would just shot around red squirrels. i saw the pattern in the snow. i was really disappointed

yari - bird shot is the issue, it's like shooting dust. .410 defenders are awesome, and a great pattern they make out of the 2-3/4" shell. "00" Buckshot is nothing to mess with, even out of a 3" barrel.

Yeah, agree with Gut - that tiny shot in most handgun shotshells isn't much use unless that snake is at your feet.  The bigger stuff doesn't spread as fast although I wonder about those flat copper disks - bet they get to fluttering not long after leaving the barrel.

Mad those flat copper disc cut through the steel drum like butter at 20 yards, imagine what they would do to an intruder in the house at 15-20 feet.  ##$%#13 you sprung a leak  @--0--0123  (*&^&%#
