    Unbiased Opinion Possibly LOL

    Ok so with my budget in mind I have two lower cost high value carbines that I am considering. One would compliment my 9mm semi auto the other my 38/357 snub nose collection and my ability to hand load 38 special. If you haven't guessed already the runner up is the KelTec Sub 2000 in Glock 9mm. The top choice so far is the Rossi Model 92 in 38/357 SS in either 16" or 20". The Sub 2000 has some definite strengths. Hi cap, tactical ready, already have plenty of Mags and $100 cheaper roughly. The Rossi is just one pretty gun, seems very well made, sounds awful fun to shoot and takes 38/357 which I can hand load. Anything I may not be aware of? Any input? I am new to long arms, this will be my first. Been shooting handguns for a while now. I shoot often so either long arm will be used ALLOT

    Thanks

    If you ever decide to deer hunt, the Rossi in .357 would make a good brush gun and I suspect, a little more accurate than the Kel-tec and it's a lot easier on the eyes!

    I agree. Lever guns have been around seems like forever and they still sell good. For an all around gun I would go with the Rossi. The Keltec is a little cheaper so it would be easier to pick up a good used one later, not having to come up with as much money. I sold my Winchester model 94 and have regretted it ever since.

    Several years back I traded for one of the older 38/357 lever actions. It was the only lever gun in that caliber I have ever used that would feed 38 special full wadcutters. The little rifle shot anything in those cases without fail. Trading it off was ignorance gone to seed. Been looking at one of the new models in 44 to make into a take down. Just hate to spend money on another toy right now.

    My vote goes to the lever gun too....many more options as to it's useage as well as...

    I like the way the Kel Tec folds over for storage, and the ability to use Glock magazines (if configured that way). I'd love to chronograph one and see what the long barrel does for 9mm velocities w/+P ammo. Just don't do what this guy did.

    Warning! There's a couple F-bombs (albeit with a heavy Russian accent )

    Take a look here. BBTI - Ballistics by the Inch :: 9mm Luger Results

    Not too bad, but not as awesome as a .357 magnum would do out of a lever gun.
