    Gonna get the Rossi M92 Carbine. I love shooting the 45 Colt Round and as much as I would love to get an Uberti, I will have to make do with the Rossi. Plus, I want to set my sights on a decent 45 Colt style revolver.

    I'm ashamed to tell you all that I backed away from the Rossi 92. Not for anything "bad" about Rossi. I just decided to spend my money on a real, Made in America rifle. So, this afternoon I went in to my favorite gun shop and bought a Henry Big Boy 45 Colt, 20" BBL.

    Gosh darn it sure is purty. The action is as smooth as butter on a warm summer day. Balance is right fine as well.

    I hope you fellas don't think poorly of me.
