    Ranch Hand Holster

    Hunter USA has a copy of the original Steve McQueen holster for around $80-100 bucks, Mernickleholster.com has one that is a holster/cartridge belt system for $399. I have been asked to make one for a customer and will get back to ya'll with pricing when I get it done. I estimate at this time it will be around $150-200. It will be heat press formed and hand stiched, then antique dyed.

    I am sorry but I bought one at Academy Sports yesterday. They had 3 x 357Mag, 2 x 44Mag and 1 x 45 Long Colt. I got one of the .357Mag as I already reload this ammo. I had been tempted for about a year and when they had the right one at the right price, I caved in and took it off of their hands. Yes the price is less than $450 plus tax.

    I agree. Unless there is some law in another state, the figures you quote are still correct so far as a pistol grip shotgun.

    just a heads up. Henry makes one of these in .22. Also a bigger caliber too. I don't remember what though. Seems the .22 version could be had for under 300.00. In a .22 version, it would have to be a good plinking and grinning gun.

    If you're still looking...try Gallery of Guns they have tons of them in 45LC, 44mag. and .357. One dealer in my area had them listed at $428.00 - best price I saw, but huge inventory.

    sometimes one does not even know that they can't live without something
    that they didn't even know existed before their eyes beheld it...

    or tune in next week for:
    .....to each his own (unless it gets bought 1st)

    ----------------
    i've fell to some odd purchases also. often i'll rationalize buying it cause i
    already load that cartrage so it ain't like it cost much...and i get 10% off if its raining.

    or a consignment went out the door so i have to carry something out also--

    Because I am trying to be a much nicer guy and get my "T" shirt that states "Don't play well with others" revoked. I will refrain from buying one so you will no longer be denied.

    Hey folks, this gun is nothing but fun. A lot of fun. I've had mine for over a year and anytime I go to the range or out in the country to shoot, my Ranch Hand goes with me. I am old enough to remember watching Steve McQueen in Wanted: Dead or Alive with my Dad. The gun is so much fun to shoot and surprizingly accurate shooting from the hip at 25 yards.

    Does it have many (if any) practical uses? Maybe, maybe not. That depends on you, but if you want to have an enjoyable afternoon shooting at tin cans, water bottles, dirt clods, etc., the Ranch Hand is hard to beat. It is a fun gun (and there are several holster offerings - one of which is a dead ringer for Steve McQueens'. Someday,I will have one!). In case you can't tell, I really like my Ranch Hand.

    That is what one would assume BUT sadly this assumption is wrong. Working for an FFL dealer and dealing with tyhis alot they are in fact a pistol griped shot gun thus according to the bean counters and knowit alls in goverment it is a PISTOL . . . my brain already hurts. I have no real reason as to why it is this way I just know that with said firearms ( the JIC and the ranch hand) and as such I do have to comply with "their" rulling and laws on this gun.

    When I was a kid that show came on in the afternoon...I never missed it! I watched all those old westerns....Wanted Dead or Alive, Rawhide, Branded, Have Gun Will Travel. Good stuff. As far as this gun goes...I was at Cabelas a couple of days ago and they had 3 of them, and my local Academy Sports has 2 of them. Maybe you are just looking in the wrong places.

    Ya beat me to it!

    As I recall, the gun in Wanted Dead or Alive was also a .44-40 with 6 in the magazine and 1 in the chamber. They had some big long rifle cartridge on his gun belt but I don't think they could have gotten more than two of them in that short magazine. I read a long article about Steve and that gun decades ago but have no clue where to find it.

    OMG! It's a little ways down this page as pictures of the pages:

    1961 Guns Quarterly Article on Steve McQueen’s Prop Gun from “Wanted: Dead or Alive” : The Original Prop Blog – Jason DeBord's TV and Movie Prop Memorabilia Resource

    Fun read.
