    Bat's New Revolver ! :)

    Well, i picked up this little stainless steel .38 special snub nose Rossi today. It is one of the older models, but is in good condition and feels very smooth.
    - Mine has Pachmayr grips on it, but I ordered some original grips on e-bay since I like the original old-school look better. Under $300, so I was pleased. Picked up a box of standard pressure hollow points (Not a +P rated pistol), and hope to get it out to the range soon to see where it points. I think it will be my rainy day CC piece, and light OC for lazy days. Seems like a nice little snubby.

    Thumbs up

    Nice find. I am fond of the .38 snubbies. They are simply handy. Sometimes I have a Barami Hip Grip on mine. These grips make it even more handy.

    Bat,
    That is a very nice little snubby. Good find.

    I have a little M85 that is my pocket gun. It is always worthwhile to have a little snubby in the collection.

    - At the Puyallup Gun Show on Sunday. One of the big center tables close to the bathrooms. The guy is always there with his kid (Who's quite the sales man too -lol). If memory serves me, he is the same guy my wife and I got her Beretta 84fs from a few years ago. Always seems to be reasonable prices.

    So, my wife, she has been very fond of our Stainless Ruger 4" GP100.. So fond of it infact that she named it "Leon" (The Professional)... ~Being the wife's favorite, Leon has become our house defense arm.

    - When I brought the little stainless Rossi home, she took it from me, checked it out, and enthusiastically said "Thank You!" as she clinged to it...... .....

    - She then proceeded to tell me the Rossi would be named "Mathilda"...

    - It gave me a good chuckle that she liked it so much. It's always good when the wife aproves of the new gun

    * The Pic is from the movie "The Professional" (Leon and Mathilda)

    Actually, I already knew where you got it because I saw you at the show... Pretty cool to see the lines though huh?

    Went to the range yesterday, it was pretty chilly out to say the least, around 30* according to my friends smart phone.
    - The Rossi shot pretty good, very well centered and right where the sights are set to. The picture is my actual gun and the 10 yard target.
