You shouldn't feel like that at all. All
but two of my Rugers were bought used
and one was a gift. All
of my Smiths were family heirloms or bought used.
Rugers can be found used for equal or less
than the cost of a new Rossi or Taurus and offer supreme quality and durability.
If your Rossi is doing what you need it to (protecting you and your loved ones), then that is just fine. That is the most important thing.
Some of us just like a little bit of history and beauty within our tools and/or the ability to push them to the limits, that's all. . .
