On revolvers, I am kind of partial to the S&W.
I have not looked at Rossi too much. Every time I have though, I like the way they are put together, but am turned off by the looks.
I could be wrong, but I thought that Taurus bought Rossi. I would hate to venture a guess on the quality being dedicated to Rossi now.
