Rossi Ranch Hand

General Thoughts

Well, I have to say that I haven’t been this excited about a gun in some time.  This gun has moved to the absolute top of my wish list.  It’s not a concealed carry gun, but I would definitely like to have it.  It is the Rossi Ranch Hand.

I am not terribly excited about the manufacturer being Rossi; however, they have merged with Taurus, and that gives me some comfort in the quality level.  I would definitely be willing to test it out and see what my thoughts are on it.

The Details

This is a lever-action weapon that is chambered in 3 different pistol calibers:

  • .38 Special / .357 Magnum
  • .44 Magnum
  • .45 Colt

The gun has a barrel length of 12″, and complies with all federal laws.  It is expected to retail at about $537.  That seems on the high side to me for what it is, but I’ll wait to see what it actually sells for.  In the mean time, I’ll keep my eye out for a good deal on one, and perhaps some reviews on how well it handles.

Well folks, that’s all for now, and remember to always watch your six!
