Thread: Heritage Rough Rider .22 LR Revlover

    Default Heritage Rough Rider .22 LR Revlover

    Oh yes I did. I bought the Hi-Point of revolvers. $129.99. The finish is just what you'd expect from a bottom shelf gun. But I didn't buy it for the finish. It has iron sights but I could've had adjustable. I hope mine are close enough. I'm not going to hunt or compete with it. It's a plinker. .22 ammo is cheap right now. I'm going to shot the crap out of it this summer up in the mountains and then give it a review. Unless, of course, it blows up in my hand before then. lol.

    Got one of those for my oldest Grandson. He uses it for everything including small game. Used both calibers with no problem at all.

    It makes a good snake gun while hiking if you use rat shot (rats.......snakes...........same difference).

    Snakes are long and skinny and rats are...never mind.

    This is one of those guns everyone owns but no one admits to!

    They are much like the old H&R pistols of the last century. Nothing to brag about but good serviceable revolvers that get the job done.

    A very popular trapline gun. I've been thinking about picking one up but may opt for the ruger wrangler instead.
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Yeah, got the pests' cure. Digging around for some leftover leather for a holster right now.

    They had them on sale at Academy around Christmas ($99). The stocks had an american flag on them. I got one to take in the boat fishing. It fits in my dry box and I have medicine bottle full of ammo. It's for that "just in case" I get to spend the night on the bay and have to eat a shore bird for supper.

    If you put it on half cock and tap the end of the pin of that stupid little safety inside the hammer channel and give the thing a little twist it comes right out and the pistol operates like a real revolver.

    It's a firearm that I can have in places I would not take one of my nicer guns.

    You do not need a weapon or ammo if you encounter snakes on the trail. Just go back the way you came. The snake is there. He owns it. You don't. Go home. Simple.

    I was camping in the mountains of GA over Memorial Day weekend. Mrs. Crash and I were doing a little cooking when we heard a gun shot (this is private property and our group of about 20 were the only ones there). We walked over to the big shade tree where we all gathered in the heat of the day to see a dead Rattle Snake. The shooter used a 38 with rat shot. There were quite a few kids within a few feet of the snake. The shooter told them to get back and then it was dispatched. The skin is drying in my back yard.

    I'm not a member of PETA and I don't shoot snakes just because they're snakes. But a poisonous one in my camp is skin and meat.

    Same here, except for the skin and meat part. Anyone that wants the skin can have it. I tried to like rattlesnake a long time ago. Couldn't do it.

    I’ve heard good things about them. Thought about getting one but, I wouldn’t carry it. Too big and scary for most city dwellers to see. Sure is a different world from 40 years ago.

    You carry a rattlesnake in the city and it would be pretty scary to folks. Probably get you arrested about as quick as carrying a Rough Rider in Massachusetts.

    Back in another life.... I drove up to the house and my Catahoula went nuts up in front of the truck. I cut the engine and stuck one leg out the door and then I heard it.... The dog had a five footer bayed up. I caught it and put it in a wire cage I had for such purposes. I went up to the local beer joint and stuck my head in the door. Since they knew me well, everyone said hello. I told them I'd be in in a min and stuck the cage through the door and set it down. As long as I had the cage moving the snake sat still. As soon as it hit the floor and stopped he struck up a tune. All those boys in the joint knew that sound and we all had a good laugh about it .... later.

    There was a guy in Freer who made hatbands, belts and such out of rattlesnakes. I took the snake by on my way to work the next day. I got $24 for that snake. In 1984 that was a several bags of groceries.
