Ordered a Rossi Ranch Hand in 357 magnum from Buds on Dec 18, picked it up today and had some range time. Not going to do a full review, just going to say everything was smooth with Buds as it always has been in my experience and this is a very fun little gun to shoot. Shoots sbout 8-10" high out of the box at 10 yards, no big deal, had heard that from others. Shot 50 rounds of 38 special and 50 rounds of 357 magnum, there is no noticeable recoil, even my wife and daughter commented on how easy it was to shoot. For those who are not familiar with the gun its a lever action 12" barrel that is somehow classified as a handgun though it looks more like a short barrel rifle. May become my new next to the bed gun. Yee-haw !

so you gonna go all Steve McQueen on us?
I grew up watching "Wanted Dead or Alive" and had the toy gun model of the "mare's leg" complete with drop leg holster as you see in the pic below.
I thought I was soooooooo bad.
sounds like Rossi made you a good one. Congrats.

I was gonna say some about ol' Steve McQueen & that Mare's Leg. I saw one on the I-net in 44Mag w a special made holster & also had the Big Loop like the Rifleman had (Chuck Connors)... I'd be the coolest guy in the cornfield with that set-up.

Looks like Steve has some 45-70Govt rounds on his belt, there, DANG!!
