Hello from MI

Postby doctorj77 » 11 Jan 2022 15:04

First timer on here from Michigan. While new to the site, not new to guns. Over the course of the past 25yrs I've owned some random 200+ firearms. I guess you could say, I like to try just about everything once.

Despite the unrested opinions of the past, Taurus & Rossi have always treated me right. Over the years I've had about a dozen or so pistols/revolvers in each brand, but only recently tried a few rifles. Have a R22S and M92 and absolutely love them.

Happy to see what I can learn from this board about my rifles

Welcome, and what cartridge for the 92?

357. I originally had my heart set on the 24in octagon barrel, but just never committed. Then a opportunity to buy a used blued 20in round barrel came along for the right price

Good looking rifle! Is that an Amadeo Rossi with a wampus cat medallion on it?

Thanks, no its a later Braztech. One of the previous owners (think I'm the 3rd?) did wood working as a hobby and refinished the stock with a linseed rub. I guess while he was there, decided to inlet a peso into the butt. No idea why, just probably thought it added character.

So while I haven't done anything to this rifle yet, I can't say I don't have any money wrapped into it :)

Welcome,
The 24" octagonal is nice but it is also quite a bit heavier than the round barrels.
They also tend to be quite a bit more expensive and more difficult to get your hands on.
