I Can't Explain It...

But I want one of these so bad I can taste it:

(picture from Rossi USA)

That's a Rossi Circuit Judge in .22 WMR/.22LR. Came across it when I was grabbing the link for the Model 92 I posted last Friday. It's got synthetic furniture, a scope rail, even a forend rail for a vertical foregrip. I'm hooked. Toss a holographic sight on that bad larry and it's off to the prairie dog killin' fields...

While I have plenty of .22LR rifles on hand, I don't have anything in the G. armory in .22 WMR. I also don't have any revolving rifles, and I've got to tell you, it's really intriguing the heck out of me. While I like the .45 LC/.410 version quite a bit, I think the the .22LR version with the the capability of adding .22 WMR is more useful and likely to be used.

Maybe I'll pick up the synthetic in .22 and the wood version in .45 LC...

That is all.

I see little appeal in revolving rifles because I am not the type who wants powder burns on my cheek. Have they solved the problem of getting fried by the powder flash that comes out where the front of the cylinder meets the forcing cone?

I have both and they are awesome fun.

The cylinder gap has a shield beside it that protects one's arm.

The 410 is great for snakes and varmint control.

The 22 is just plinking fun.

I forgot to mention the only downside I have is with ejecting the 410 shells. The shells in the two inner most chambers hit the stock before being fully ejected and you have to empty the outer chambers and then rotate the cylinder to fully eject the rest.

Some folks have dremmeled the wood stock to correct this issue.

Enjoy your trip to Texas. It is in the 80s this week.

I've been thinking about picking up .22 WMR pistols and rifles because that's about the only ammunition available anymore.
