    Very cool. Ive seen those online and at gun shops, but Ive never held one. Is the "stock" long enough to shoulder?

    Nice! I'll bet it is a handful to shoot with magnums! You could probably shoot .44 specials (cowboy loads) they are pretty mild. Good luck!

    Hey ho. A mares leg. I've played with the idea of one for the farm. Never have done it but it looks like it'd be fun. Range report expected. You should be able to find some kind of 44 ammo, your basic box o' chocolate offerings. Let us know.......

    Other than looking cool on Steve McQueen leg, I've never seen the purpose of a Mare's Leg. I guess everyone's entitled to different toys.

    You know LT., that "Mare's Leg" would have looked real niffty hung up in the gun rack of your old patrol car! (Just jokin' of course...but could you imagine the looks that would have gotten?!)

    I shot my father in laws. Essentially need to shoot it with arms extended for accuracy. Handled the A& E range ammo just fine.

    That would be epic! A mares leg in the rack of an old Dodge P-car complete with "bubblegum lights", the Motorola Porta-Com, complete with the foul odor of those old pool cars!

    I have seen these around and have always thought they were very cool looking. I am curious how it fires and feels under use.
