• Rossi .22 Lever

    From JIMMY ANDERSON@VERT/OTHETA to ALL on Wednesday, June 02, 2021 22:11:00

    Got an email about this gun today talking about it being a good one!

    Rural King has the poly and cerakote version for $299... VERY very
    tempting!

    Anyone have an opinion and/or have owned one?



    ... It beeped and said "Countdown initiated". Is that bad?

    Reminds me of when Covid first 'hit' - I saw something to the effect
    of "the grocery store had these X's where they want you to stand.
    NOPE! Seen too many Road Runner cartoons to fall for that!"

    Also - back on topic - LOL - I've not seen one of the Rossi's in
    stock anywhere, so still have no actual opinion, but would be
    interested to know if someone has...

    I prefer a Double Ought Six! I mean, sure theres not much left for supper, but your chances of hitting something is increased tremendously! And for Blue Jays and Wood Peckers, You gotta use the 50 Cal! Nut for those, you'll want to aim for the body. If you aim for the head, you may not be able to properly identify it as the right bird or not. And, if you aim for the feet, you may end up causing the poor bird to suffer a slow agonizing death as he looses all his blood from the legs.... Now that I think about it, aim for the feet, and cross the streams! Crossing the streams is a good thing!

    It's illegal to even get caught with a .22 while Duck Hunting. If you miss a head shot and hit the body you will most likely just wound the duck. If someone from "Ducks Unlimited" catch you they'll probably take your .22 rifle and then beat the crap out of you. It's your call. Quack Quack. ;-)

    ... In comparison, there's no comparison.

    I know, and I agree.

    My reply above was an attempt at humor, aimed at your use of the word "shore"...

    The comment was mostly about hitting a duck with a .22 in flight is a
    pretty good shot, in contrast with say, a shotgun, which AFAIK is much
    more appropriate (and legal). But whatever.

    IIRC, it's illegal to use a rifle to shoot birds with rifles in most locations.

    I guess the snark from my original comment didn't really come across...
    mostly in that A (I know) it's pretty much illegal everywhere, and B
    hitting a bird in the air with a .22 and making a kill shot would be
    pretty impressive.
