Rossi Tuffy .410 Youth Shotgun

The Tuffy is a new single shot youth shotgun chambered in .410. It features a thumbhole stock that can store five rounds, and has a viewing window for checking how many rounds are stored.

Two models are available, one in stainless, the other in matte blue. Both has 18.5″ barrels and weight 3 lbs. The MSRP is $172 (I think this is for the blue version).

The first Rossi I shot was a .22 / . 410 matched pair. They are really neat guns and an ideal inexpensive candidate for teaching children shot to shoot.

    Nice handy truck,camp, or RV gun. Good with slugs or buckshot. The small szie makes it very manuverable in a vehicle or at close quarters.

    If you hike in snake or cougar country this is the gun for you. Big5 sells them for under $150 in stainless. .410 shells are cheap. Ya can't do a tactical reload but it is fast enough for field use. Takes under 2 sec to reload cock and fire if you practice. As you should. SAFETY FIRST.

    It also has a child proof lock internally if you use such things. To me child proofing a gun is treaching a child the safety rules.

    Can you get a .22 barrel for this gun, and if so where can i get it or is there a website that sells it with it also?
