Rossi and Taurus are fine revolvers. They have 100% no questions asked warranty. You could send them one that was cut in half with a grinder and they will replace it no questions asked. They are tight, solid, well put together guns that shoot quite well. Rossi also makes The Puma, a nice level action rifle. Taurus is a little more well known but they are pretty much the same product. You can find both much cheaper than the $425 stated in the original post.

There is also the Taurus 8 shot 357 which I use for Pinshooting and I love it. My Rossi I cannot be faulted either.

I owned both without any problems. Taurus' are machined a bit better though. Either brand back in the 60's and 70's was worth the time of day ! I'd save up and get a Ruger or Smith. If you really have to have that movie gun S&W model 29 or 27, save you dollars.
If it don't matter and you want a strong revolver that you could shoot the holy hell out of, get a Ruger !

My personal "gun fund" grows by about $10/week(I too am not made of money). Any extra money earned goes in when it can as well. I let it build up until I have enough to buy a really good/better version of what ever I want.
Save your money for one of these. Smith & Wesson 686. I have one and it is fantastic.
