    i would suggest a nine shot 22 taurus,i bought the ultra lite for camp gun and is very easy to carry and very dependable,as far as the heritage its not really a quality gun.on the flip side you can purchase a 22 single six used for around 200.00 and have a lifelong companion. old semperfi

    I own one Beth! Love to shoot it! safty is a little funky but its a great shooter! Tarus just bought them out also so make sure you get one with the new lifetime warranty if avail. contary to belief they are very reliable and take a beating well.

    I have a Heritage Rough Rider and I love it. The only gripe I have about it is the finish rubs off easily. Other than that its a nice little gun.

    You could "Pawn Shop" around for one. The Ace hardware where I used to work in Clewiston,FL sold them cheap a few years ago.

    I used to have a HEritage rough rider. they are good guns for the money. Light and handy. They aint no colt frontier scout or a ruger single six, but they are good for thier purpose. and a classic 4 click to boot.

    I started a thread on another forum about this very thing. I asked specifically for double actions, but was recommended a few singles as well.

    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=603210

    I was mainly recommended old H&Rs, NEFs, Hi Standards and Iver Johnsons, but Heritages and Rugers were also on the list, as well as the Taurus, the only new inexpensive double that was mentioned. (I eventually got an H&R 999)

    Heritage is a nice gun. Taurus recently bought the company, but I don't know if they offer their lifetime warranty on the Heritage pistols yet.
    My local shop recently got in some Puma .22 single action revolvers. They are $199, brand new. I think they are only .22lr though, no .22mag cylinder.

    I would also like to find a single 6 in 22 for 200 dollars. The rough riders arent a bad gun at all a friend of mine has one came with 22lr and a 22 mag cylinder I believe he got it on sale for 179 at Gander Mtn.

    I went for the Rough Rider came with 22lr and 22 mag cylinder 209 at Bass Pro. Only thing with buying at Bass Pro is takes 2 hrs to buy a gun and do the paper work even with a ccp.
