Wouldn't have been my first choice but my father has been carrying one for a couple years no problems. Frankly only problems I have had with a Rossi revolver have been with my .17HMR and one tight chamber

If that's not on the list of Famous Last Words, it should be, right up there with, "Hey y'all, hold my beer and watch this..." and "I think it's a dud..."

I have owned a Rossi R971 revolver for years. It's a good piece.

I have a friend who is very knowledgeable about firearms and has some upper tier guns. He has a Rossi 68, IIRC, and loves it. He said it is a sleeper.

That is similar to my Rossi except mine has a rubber mono-grip.
