Looking at picking up the .357 snubby that we sell at work as kind of a backup CCW and a perfect snack gun for when I go fishing?

Has anyone dealt with these? Any reliability issues? Any guns blowing people's faces off when they fail? What's the low down skinny on them?

As I understand Rossi they were a standalone company then were absorbed by Taurus, and were allowed to continue running as they were. Similar to the situation with Ford and Aston Martin.

It's still a good and relatively affordable piece.

Eh doesn't matter,

I'm a Glock Fanboi now.

I bought a G17 Friday.
G22 was my second ever pistol. I still have it and still shoot it every time I go out.

And yeah, it doesnt really matter, just wanted to get that out.

They are both copies of S&W designs.
