Congrats on the new addition. I do like Rossi and the many offerings they have.
My first gun purchase as an adult was a Rossi .22 Mag/ 12g 3” combo. Killed my first slug and buckshot deer with that gun. Also dislocated my shoulder with it as well.
I still remember my dad picking me up from kindergarten, and asking me if I'd been good that day. He then took me to the sporting goods store and got me a Rossi 62 gallery gun. Still have it, but it got a bit of abuse when I was a kid.
