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.
