    That would be tempting. Do they transfer to FFL? I don't see where you could order a firearm from their website.

    They're not Chief Specials or Ladysmiths, but jeeze Louise they're new, compact, 3" brl and only 200 clams.

    My only complaint is buying when they were 229!

    Anyone that doubts Rossi and their ability should take a gander at their lever guns.

    The 38 frame might not be robust, yet it isn't a 357.

    Speaking of, I'd like to have the 357 grips that are rounded as opposed to the straight goodyear.

    They say they won't interchange. I'd like to try.

    The little revolver has a very good feel in the hand and is a natural pointer. I've had three different newbies shoot mine in teaching them and it being their first handgun experience. Two shot very well their first time out, and the third fellow, two years older fart than me, really shot well. The trigger was pretty smooth out of the box, and with 350 rounds shot, and about 500 snap cap snaps, it is very smooth. I have handled some that the trigger and hammer both felt a little gritty, and a good cleaning and lube I'm sure they would be fine. Mine was smooth when I got it. The bluing is very deep and good. Just a really versatile and handy revolver. I can't really find any rocks to throw at it, and think it would be a good value at an extra $100

    Re: Rossi 351-3 back at $199.95 at Academy

    Bought one yesterday, Thursday @ Academy for $150 BNIB. I'm a sucker for good deals.

    Told my wife 2 weeks ago that the purchase of a Taurus PT101 was the last for a while. Well.....

    I opened the Sunday, Feb 14th Academy ad and saw the 351 for $199 AND a deal where if you open a Academy cc in store, you get an immediate $50 off your purchase of $150 or more!

    Done................ deal.............!

    Question? Does it accept +P 38 loads? Bought some Remington UMC 125 gr JHP +P 38 spcl ammunition @ Walmart.

    I read the owner's manual that came with the gun, but didn't see any mention of +P suitability in this firearm?
    Bitten by the gun bug..... bad

    Holy Cow!!!!! This gun is awesome!

    Took it to the range and shot about 40 rounds of 38 spcl +P through it. It was loud, made a big boom, and brought a big, big smile to my face!

    Accurate, fits perfectly in the hand, and a pleasure to shoot. I am so pleased with my first revolver.

    My wife and 9 yr old son shot it too and gave a gasp each time they shot it.

    what a smokin' deal at $149 for a brand new Rossi 38 sp with a 3" barrel!

    Glad to see you like the little revolver and that I'm not just partial.

    Throughout the years I have seen many trends come and go and come back again. Look at the rise in pocket autos, an idea that dates to the first part of the 20th century. "snubbies" have never quite "faded", but we have gone to "unobtanium" and polymer for materials. I would say that a "renaissance" of all steel simple and basic revolvers might almost be predictable.

    As new shooters get more trigger time in their log books they start to learn. Common myths like snubs being inaccurate, or adjustable sights somehow making a gun more accurate, fall by the wayside and they discover that Grandpa wasn't such a cave-dweller after all.
