    Local gunshop has a Heritage Arms "Rough Rider" .22LR/M revolver for 150$ brand new. Includes the LR cyl and a magnum cyl. What does WMD think about one of these for plinking and target shooting? Are these generally accurate enough to try for tight groups at <25yards?

    Don't know how good they are but that is just an average price. Pawn shops seem to keep these around at that price consistantly

    with extensive google searching I am becoming aware of this. general consensus is they're semi entertaining toys or snake guns if you have 150$ laying around with nothing better to do.

    sounds like I'd be better off getting used a single six or one of the MKI/II/IIIs for ~50$ more.

    I would rather get the used Single Six. If you want a semi, you can't go wrong with the Mark series either.

    I would pony up the extra $50. I had a cheap .22/.22WMR revolver about 6 years ago, one day while shooting squirrels with .22WMR, the chrome plating exploded off the cylinder, peppering me in the face.
