I started this thread in Self Reliance, but thought it might get more response in Homesteading Questions. . . I have a question and this is the best, and probably most knowledgeable, forum to bring up the subject. As a veteran I am not a firearms virgin, however, because of my distaste for war, I have stayed away from firearms since that time. However, I am contemplating purchasing a rifle for protection, both personal and for my critters, when I make the move to my next homestead. My question is that in the Dickâs Sporting Goods flyer, I have seen multi-barrel rifles, one particular a Rossi Triple Threat three-barrel combo that I am contemplating. In the past I have seen the youth matched pair that this is comparable to but the Rossi Triple Threat is a 20 gauge, a .243 and a .22LR and since this is on sale and priced just at $230, it fits my budget and I would think suit my needs. Can anyone tell me more, positive and negative toward this weapon?
