Dont buy the Rossi. I bought one and couldnt site it in. It would never shoot in the same place. Went back 2 days later and bought the H&R. Very accurate. My son has shot at 2 deer and killed both of them with the H&R. I would not put my son in a stand with a Rossi. Rossi,$200.00 H&R, $250.00
THERE WAS A REPORT ON HERE ONCE WERE A GUY MADE A PADDLE OUT OF HIS KIDS ROSSI .243 FOR STIRRING HIS CRAWFISH POT.I SOLD THE ONE MY KIDS HAD AND NEVER HEARD NOTHING BACK FROM THE POOR FELLOW THAT BOUGHT IT, HE PROBABLY DOESN'T LIKE ME TO MUCH AFTER HE TRIED TO SIGHT IT IN.
