Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Powerful, shootable and, above all, versatile, in pistol-caliber long guns it’s tough to top the .357 Magnum.

Quote:
Pistol-caliber carbines and rifles generally get a bad rap. “Sure,” sing the naysayers, “they’re fun for plinking, but what else are they good for?” Generally, this sentiment bubbles to the surface because these doubtful souls target intensify on one particular class of pistol-caliber long guns — semi-automatics. If they happened to step-up to a revolver magnum, say in a lever-action, many of their complaints might very well evaporate.

I have always regreted selling my .357 Rossi rifle.
I made a lot of 200 yard kills on Jackrabbits with it.
Now I have several thousand rounds of reloaded .357 and .38 specials
and only hand guns to digest them.

My brother-in-law has a Marlin 1894C with the 20" octagon barrel. That thing shoots like a laser beam out to 200 yards with his reloads. One year, at Thanksgiving, we were popping 1 lb. canisters of Tannerite with it, set up at 200 yards. Hold right on the white dot (which is all you could see of the canister) and BOOM!

I plan on getting a pistol caliber rifle, but keep wavering between .44 mag and .357, even though I'm a .44 mag guy.

I have a Winchester 94 Trapper in .44 mag. It's a great little rifle for walking around in the woods.

Pistol caliber carbines are excellent for defense and most tasks people need a rifle for.

I have been shooting my Winchester model 1866 in .38 special a lot. It is a sweet shooting piece.

The .357 in a lever carbine is really a nice combo, but I prefer my Rossi mod.92 in .45 colt. I reload and I can get plinkers or bear busters. Love the big bullet.

That's what my cousin shoots. A lot of jackrabbits have met their match with that rifle. He gets a kick out of it because the bullet goes in one side and a ring of fur poofs out the other side.

One of these days I will have one of those, if I can quit buying the intermediate round semi-autos.

I really enjoy my Rossi .44 magnum. It's light, accurate and carries 10 rounds of .44 magnum. I haven't shot any .44 special out of it, but I'm sure it would be very soft shooting. Actually, I got the rifle for my wife. She doesn't care for the automatics. She likes her revolvers, pump actions and lever guns. I put a good looking leather lace on pussy pad on it for her. It tames the .44 magnum real well and looks good too. I would like to get one of Rossi's .357 lever guns some time. I like having revolver and rifle combinations that take the same caliber. Hell, the Dan Wesson and Ruger .44's we have weigh almost as much as our Rossi rifle.
