    I have the rough rider and I love it. I have about 2000 rounds through mine and been a good shooter. I would recommend it.

    The Rough Rider is not so well fitted nor finished as a Ruger or Uberti, and close examination reveals features most don't like in a single action. But, the fact of the matter is that, while not target quality, they are simple, rugged, reliable and have field grade accuracy.

    For popping cans or empty cartridge boxes, they'll do the job.

    They're decent for the cost. Also they've improved much over the years.
    They aren't high quality, but they're a lot of fun.

    Absolutely! I've always heard that the best place to stay with handguns is revolvers & best caliber to start with is 22. This suits both! Great starter gun I say.

    The single action revolver is a great starter gun. The gun cannot be fired by a novice by simply pulling the trigger, he must manually cock the gun first. And with the big hammer spur a coach can readily see at a glance that the gun is cocked or not. And there is no temptation to spray out a stream of bullets.

    I love this gun. I bought mine about two months ago...have put well over 500 rounds through it with no issue. It fairly accurate for its price and quality...and everyone that sees it wants to shoot it...the 4 position hammer is kind of unique also.

    I have a Heritage "Texas Ranger" .22 lr/.22 wmr convertible with 6 1/2 inch barrel I bought in 1987. It shoots pretty straight, `does OK for a cheapo piece. The main problem I have with it is that the loading gate is held on by a rivet, which has worked loose, and lets it flop around if I don't watch it carefully.
    OK for a starter gun or a plinker if you don't get too serious about it.
