I have an identical Rossi, except mines shiny and .357 magnum. Single and double action. I shot it 3 times, about 10 yards at a 1.5'' plank/ board. Missed 2 of the 3 shots which made me mad but for how small it is I guess it just requires practice. The one I did hit right in the middle was shot as single action. Went plum through the board with a hollow point bullet. Mine is brand new. Bought it for self defense in the house or traveling. How did you do since the time you bought it? I paid 350 before tax for mine.
also, I appreciate your honesty with how bad you did. It just goes to show all the things that could go wrong. The sight is a pain. I'm use to the simple ones on my rifles. I don't even need a scope with those in my backyard.
