Looks to be the same gun sold on BF for close to the same price...nice find.

Way cool! Anyone know any reliable glock alternatives? I'd like solely for home defense, but could do without the $500 price tag.

That depends on many factors...

2" barrel on a 44 mag? Hang on tight!

Better get them now...just saw Obama's speech. Prices will skyrocket soon if not already. Sad, really.

He has been directing his focus on "assault weapons" and "semi-auto" handguns. Not saying that the price won't go up, just specifying on what I've been hearing.

I'm a big Rossi fan, but want to caution anyone who goes to Academy to buy one of these: Examine the gun closely for mechanical problems like timing and cylinder lockup. Not long ago, I was looking at the Rossi 3" 357 mag revolver at Academy (which were widely reported as spotty, quality wise), and I was dismayed to see how poorly machined it was. There were notable defects on the cylinder ratchet. I pointed it out to the employee behind the counter, who said, "Oops, that one needs to go back to the distributor."

I've owned a number of Rossi products over the years, generally well made and servicable. But quality has gotten iffy lately.
